The Barry Sheene ’76 Suzuki RG500 restoration is complete

…and It. Is. Beautiful.

Released earlier this month, Part one showed the pair of ex-GP engineers working through the particular set of challenges that restoring an old, Suzuki XR14 RG500 can face.

Now – with part two – the restoration is complete and the machine is utterly stunning.

Flown to the UK last year for part of the 40th anniversary celebrations of Sheene’s maiden world title, the bike will now take centre stage at a number of events this year before being returned to the care of the Sheene family.
