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?
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.
I have one for sale. Complete bike w/o signals. Not running,broken front lamp,new clutch cable,needs front brake cable. no title for $500. same yellow bike like above.
My cousins had one growing up on the farm that we played with, there were RV90's with a dual range transmission High and Low with 4 gears in each. The RV125 is just the 4 gears. About 8hp and 2-stroke. Tons of fun AND street legal. My brothers bought one for nostalgia and I've had fun helping fix it up. It'll do about 50mph with me on it. In the US they were called Trackers. In Japan they were called VanVan's, which means "Go"? Later became 4 stroke and might have even come back to the US, but I have yet to see a US 4 stroke VanVan.
Kinda like a Honda FatCat or a Yamaha BW200, neither of which is street legal I think. Tires are hard to get and expensive, some close fits in ATV tires but not really. In the end we just paid out the nose for OEMS that we found online.
If anyone has spare parts, I'll pass your info onto my brother, he's restoring the bike now and really has it sorted out very well.
Rusty RC ......HI can you contact me here about your yellow one for sale? Can you send pics? What state are you in?
Selling NOS air pump / tire inflator on ebay. Sold the RV to a buddy but he didn't want the pump.
The later modles of this bike are the VanVans, sold in England [4 stroke 125cc] and Japan [ same bike but 200cc] would like to see it here in US but at least a 250 cc engine. CMS
TrophyHunter recently sold me this beauty, I think it had three more miles on it than when he took the pictures he posted. I did a carb clean and adjust and she's running pretty darn good. It's a lot of fun to ride around town and is a conversation starter anywhere I stop.
Now to find tires....just not trusting the 40 year old tires too much.
Sorry to revive an old thread but if anyone reads through this and is looking for tyres, I bought one of the rears a few years back from www.jp-parts.com in Japan, I think it was about $200 AUD delivered to Australia. Still haven't put the thing on yet, sitting in the shed in parts
Oh, this is my first post as well :) Hello all!
That Suzuki is sweet. Reminds me of a Yamaha TW200. But one thing I don't get. They used solid wheels (no spokes) and it STILL had tube type tires? I love that it is a 2 stroke, though I wish it were bigger. The biggest issues with the TW200 are it's tube type tires, no centerstand, and not enough fuel capacity. These simple to correct issues seriously limit what would otherwise be a perfect bike to ride long distances off road.
I thought you guys in the states got skyteam bikes, they do a copy of the old beach bike and a 250cc raptor with similar style but more beefy?
Available in the U. S. from Pitster Pro for $1849. Pretty sweet.
