Last weekend was the region's big "100 mile garage sale", complete with mini-donuts, circus tents, etc. I never pay attention and make every effort to be riding far away, but did happen to notice that nearby was a green ST90 that had seen quite a bit of outside time. I couldn't tell later if it had sold or not when I rode past, though it was the only thing all weekend that made me stop and take a look.

Price on the duct tape price tag looked like $1650. It wasn't even close to being as nice as HandKPhil's.

any updates?

I'm looking at one of these to buy but can't find much info out there abt these little scoots. The one I'm looking at looks as good as yours, and it's $550. So just wondering what you've found out abt them since you picked it up. Do you ride it around much? I'd be using this one as a town scoot, not so much for off-roading. Also wondering if slightly thinner, more street-oriented tires will fit- don't see why not, tho.
If I pass on it, I'll go for the ubiquitous CT90/ Trail 90, simply b/c of their parts availability and reliability. I just like things that are a little different- and THESE are different.

p.s. how's the handling on the streets?

I bet that Suzuki 125 is a torque monster in that little frame.

I bet your right! It looks pretty cool! Little thing will probably lift the front wheel up by accident! It doesn't appear much bigger than a Honda 70, but it has more gears, bigger tires and is 2 stroke!

Here's an interesting hybrid for sale on Craig'slist with a hotter engine.

Emailed for price, wants "best offer".

Where are you guys finding tires for this bike?
Front 5.40-14
Rear 6.70-12

I checked all my online parts sites and found nothing. Suzuki still lists as available but prices are crazy high, over $400 for both tires and both tubes.

and would someone please measure the outside diameter of both their front and back tires. I'm thinking I could possibly substitute an ATV tire if I know the height.

That engine is identical to the TS125 engine.
If so you should be able to get sme parts from dealers.
Considering Suzuki built it up to 1983 or something.
I had a TS125, as my first real dirt bike. I rode the piss outta that thing for years and carried me here and there through the woods.

And probably a forever wait. I waited more than 6 months for a 23-inch front tire for a 1979 Honda dirt bike. And this was 30 years ago when the bike was still new. Today the Chinese make 23-inch tires as a matter of course. Try them for the odd tire sizes you seek.
