Lot 103
From the estate of the late Ernie Hall
1975 Suzuki GT500A
Registration no. LUL 186P
Frame no. T500-90098
Engine no. T500-90041
Launched in 1967, the Suzuki T500 - sold initially as the Cobra in the UK - demonstrated that it was possible to build a large, modern 'stroker' that was at the same time both quick and reliable. The bullet-proof air-cooled engine followed the layout of Suzuki's smaller twins and produced 46bhp (later 47bhp), an output good enough for a top speed of around 115mph. Built in unit with the five-speed gearbox, it went into a duplex loop frame similar to that of the 250/ 350 twins. Unusually, the gear change shaft ran right through the gearbox casing, enabling the gear lever and rear brake pedal to be swapped over to the 'European' arrangement. The T500 stayed much the same for several years and it was not until the arrival of the 1976 models towards the end of 1975, when the name changed to GT500A, that extensive revisions arrived in the form of a disc front brake, electronic ignition and a larger fuel tank. Much underrated, although commanding a loyal band of devotees, the GT500 continued in production until the end of 1977.

Presented in 'barn find' condition, this Suzuki GT500A was purchased by Ernie Hall in March 1983 and appears not to have been used for some considerable time. Offered for restoration, the machine comes with a V5C document and is sold strictly as viewed.
Offered with key

£800-1, 200
To be sold without reserve


All lots are sold 'as is/ where is' and Bidders must satisfy themselves as to the provenance, condition, age, completeness and originality prior to bidding.
