The GB500 TT’s design, mechanical configuration, and café racer styling recall British 500 cc singles of the 1950s, such as the BSA Gold Star. The four-valve single-cylinder engine featured a radial four-valve combustion chamber, along with a tubular frame, wire-spoked wheels with alloy rims, clip-on handlebars, solo seat, seat hump, and pin-striped fuel tank. The styling resembled TT single-cylinder racing bikes that were prominent in the TT until the 1960s. The GB500 was a fine-handling machine. It featured clip-on handlebars and the instruments featured a black background with white lettering. US-model production was for model years 1989 and 1990 and featured black-green paint with gold pin-striping and lettering, as well as chrome wire wheels. Like the Japan-market model, it had steel-braided oil lines, steel side covers, fork gaiters, non-adjustable fork with hydraulic damping, and 18-inch wheels with tube-type tires. This bike has both electric- and kick-starters. In North America, they were sold just in the US, not in CanadaI
