    This is a Suzuki TC90 that I purchased three years ago. It was a barn find that had been sitting for more than twenty years after the owner's wife died and he put his and her bikes in the shed and locked the door behind them. I cleaned out the fuel petcock, carburetor and fuel line, added some fresh gas and it fired right up. I freshened it up again this year so my 13 year old son could take his first ride on it. He rode until nearly 10pm last night and was too stoked to sleep until after 11pm. I hope you enjoy the pictures!

    My best friend had one of those when new - that same color.

    Since we're both heavier than we were back then I've been looking for a TC185 to restore for him.
