It's a '74 Suzuki TC185 (actually a 183, but with a 1mm overbore it'll really be a 185). It has a dual range 5 speed transmission. I need to find a petcock, and a left side passenger footpeg, but other than that it's pretty complete.

Since the first picture Ive gotten all the lights, a mirror, sprocket cover, airbox, and some electrical stuff fixed.
I believe that of all the previously owned motorcycles, the 185 Suzuki was my favorite!! I built a TS185 for TT's back in the 70's. Wish I still had it!!
