Great bikes!!! Still have my 78 IT175 that I bought new and have pictured before (not this thread).

Thought I would go for a change of pace and recently picked up this pup, a complete 1967 Kawasaki 250cc A1SS with 6.8K on the clock. Amazingly this rascal is, despite the external rust, in real good mechanical shape. The tank internals are perfect as is the engine (almost).

Will require the normal elbow grease and some parts to recover some of it's original cosmetic appearance but I'm looking to turn it into a near original runner as opposed to a museum piece. Currently torn down for rehab and so far, so good.

I picked this one up from CL. I have been rounding up parts and cleaning it since. It is in pretty good shape for it's age. I just ordered a bunch of needed parts, and dropped the cylinder off for boring. It's needed a bunch of TLC, but I paid less than you might for a used mountain bike (I sold a set of golf clubs to pay for it). 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.

I fabbed up a rack for it a month ago or so.


Since the first picture Ive gotten all the lights, a mirror, sprocket cover, airbox, and some electrical stuff fixed.

There's got to be more 2-strokes out there.

Let's see them.

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!!

Awesome bike! I haven't run across much info on these. This is the first pic I've seen of any cool mods. What year is it? Mine has a different pipe, it runs up higher and across the top up by the seat. The fins on the head and cylinder are different as well. and mine has a rear brake rod instead of a cable (I think I could set it up either way). Thanks for posting it!

This was a 1971/first year model. The pipe, head and cylinder are part of a kit that Suzuki put out for racing. It reduced the displacement to 175cc. At the point that this picture was taken, I had a 34mm carb on it and was still messing around with different ignition boxes to get the best HP. It worked pretty and regularly beat the 200cc Bultacos at Perris and Elsinore raceways in California.
