Spondon Framed 1981 TZ500
I apologize in advance, I sat on this one and the auction is nearing its’ end. This isn’t a museum piece and it isn’t original but that is what I like about it. It has been modernized a bit and is ready for your local track. To be truthful this could have been put together with tape and I would have posted it, I’m just a sucker for those snake like chambers that grace the TZ500. Another benefit of not being a collector type TZ500 is that it is affordable for a much larger range of people. Maybe it is still overpriced since no one has taken the BIN price.
There they are! Someone from Georgia (it’s located in Canton, GA) please buy this thing so I can try to bum a lap on it. I’m truly intrigued by what it would be like to ride a race bred 500cc two stroke.
The seller didn’t include much info:
1981 TZ500 Spondon Chasis marchisini wheels JPK motor titanium pnumatic power valves New pipes spare set of pipes as well. LOTS of spares
Question, questions. Anyone heard of JPK that did the engine work? How about the power valves: titanium and pneumatic? Someone please explain that mod to little ole me. Who has a guess what the swing arm was stolen from?
It just simply looks like fun. The sound of the damn thing might be worth the price.
