Hi all, I was riding past the bike shop in my local area when I spotted something out of the ordinary for sale out front. I dropped in and had a closer look. It turned out to be a Suzuki GT500 modified to be a Cafe Racer. It was a very tidy bike with new paint and a reconditioned engine with only 1000ks on the the clock. It was obvious the previous owner who had traded it in for a tourer took a lot of pride in it. Asking more about it I was surprised to learn it was actually a 500cc 2 parallel cylinder two stroke. Eventually I was coerced into taking it for a test ride and man what a great bike it is! As I have just finished being one my restricted licence I am considering upgrading to something a bit bigger. So I wanted to ask if anyone has had experience with one of these? I asked the sales guy and he said maintenance is easy as its a very simple engine - but that could just be sales guy talk. Are these bikes easy to maintain? I have to admit the idea of a two stroke chewing oil scares me a bit, but then again I'm just not used to them. They are asking $7000, which I think is very steep (but it does have recondition engine, new electrics and paint/chrome). Would anyone know what I should be paying for a bike like this? Thanks! Any advice is appreciated!
