Golden Goliath: Suzuki T500 II Titan café racer
The fabulous creation – based on a 1969 Suzuki T500 II Titan – was painstakingly built by Norwegian Bård Hansen. With a variety of modifications (which include Ceriani shocks, Mikuni carbs and rare Akront rims), the end product is barely reconisable as a Titan, bar the retention of the Colorado Gold factory paintwork. But, as always, no matter how accomplished the final project is, its true beauty can only be done justice by finding a contrasting backdrop. That’s why motorcycle photographer Nicki Twang shot it in the ‘Barcode Project’, an almost-completed dockside development in Oslo which places emphasis on cutting-edge architecture.
