great pic! if you were to put the "suzuki" logo script in white in the bottem left, and "sp600" in red on the top right, i might think its a brochure. reminds me of the time i spent in western NC. and youre absolutely right, i need some new pics. if what the welder said the last i talked to him is true i should have something new to show thursday. heres hoping for that to work out

Thanks for the 185 pics Tudelum. Now I have to get my 185 cleaned up and running.

I have 2 to get running

I got a 1950 Harley Hydra Glide to get running. (Not to rare)
and a 1966 106cc Sears. If you think this SP600 thread is rare a 106 Sears thread would be one short line.

How many were sold?

Is there any way to find out how many of the SP600's were sold in the US?

This link might have come up in this thread before... one model year here. Should narrow down the production numbers somewhat.

its alive!

ok, finished wrapping up the header and fired it up this morning. seems to be relatively leak free, at least the clutch cover is sealed up.

idle seems to be hanging up and fluctuating. im sure its carb related but i can live with it for now. let me know if ya have any insight on what i should look for to remedy this. ill be fixing that later though as it bothers me. heres a short vid:
