Boris ‘Bob’ Guynes’ Suzuki T500 Titan

Submitted by on May 1, 2012

Suzuki T500

Quick, agile, light and reliable, Suzuki’s T500 bucked conventional thinking about two-strokes and the trend towards big four-strokes in the late ’60s and was generally a smooth, successful and pretty bike.

This particular bike is Boris ‘Bob’ Guynes’ Suzuki T500 Titan, and it goes a little beyond just pretty.

Bob, a self-admitted “scoundrel, into bikes and speed” and veteran of the Bonneville salt flats, built the bike with Ron Grant and has campaigned it in vintage motorcycle racing. A fabricator and model-maker by trade, his skills shine in this incredible machine. It’s built from period-correct bits to be absolutely immaculate. A work of art.

The bike is part of Bob’s as yet undocumented, but reportedly miraculous, collection of motorcycles. Automotive photographer TJ Grewal, who is responsible for the beautiful photos you see here, is set to change this and get to photographing Bob’s collection shortly.

While you wait, check out TJ’s collection of automotive and motorsport art on his website here, including his full set of shots of the T500.
