    Up for sale is the very first motorcycle I ever owned. A pristine example of the first type of enduro bikes 49 years old!!! This is mostly original. The TS has the dual range transmission with four normal gears and four low range gears. It also has the Suzuki CCI oil injection. I'll try my best to recount the upgrades to the bike. Original paint, seat and just about everything else. I have the factory manual and a bunch of new OEM parts. that will come with the bike. Bike is located in Park City, UT

    Everything works as it should including headlight both high/low beam, neutral light, bright light indicator and horn. I've swapped out or replaced most of the seals and cables. Tank interior is is great condition.

    - New OEM one over cylinder installed with a new one over piston and rings.
    - New OEM rear shocks.
    - New OEM head.
    - New OEM clutch plates.
    - Rebuilt carb.
    - New petcock.
    - New oil injection pump.
    - New K&N air filter. (I'll have to confirm this but I think this is what I put on)
    - OEM fork brace. (not part of original factory, but a Suzuki aftermarket part)


    Parts that come with the bike...
    - Original cylinder and head.
    - Again, I'll have to confirm but I believe I have new, both front brake and clutch levers.
    - New OEM foot pegs (these are literally unobtainable)
    - New OEM grips.
    - New OEM Suzuki tank emblems (also very hard to find)
    - New fork seals (not installed)
    - New OEM oil injection pump.
    - NEW OEM seat cover. (Original seat should probably have foam replaced but there are no tears in the original cover).
    - Turn signals. (I think these are aftermarket but appear OEM. There is a switch for turn signals but the bike did not come from factory with these installed). It should be a fairly easy job to attach them if the buyer would like.

    Bike turns over usually first kick. I'll look through my stash and update anything else that I may have missed or overlooked. Mileage is approximately 5,700. I installed the clutch, cylinder and piston at around 5,200. Asking $2,000. Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks!

    They made a 100cc “hop up kit” for this bike that included a low level expansion chamber. It would run out of revs before it would run out of power. Great bikes, my first real motorcycle.

    I currently have 11 bikes sitting in my garage. I got this, mostly restored it then rode it down memory lane quite a few times. Both of my kids learned to ride on this bike. But now it just sits idle in the corner of the garage. I'm trying to adopt a more minimalistic attitude as I grow older. Stuff is just stuff. But I'm hoping someone may find the same nostalgia in the bike that I did when I got it about 10 years ago.

    IMG_0018.JPG What did George Carlin used to say about stuff... "My stuff is Stuff, other people's stuff is shit"
    You got some really good looking stuff there .
    I'm in the same boat as you - too much stuff. No more room to hide another motorbike from the wife !!
    Would you consider some trades ?!? Maybe you could use some ski equipment ? I got lots of that too.
    Cheers

    That be "The look"

    Awesome bike! My brothers and I had the same bike in yellow. This was our first real motorcycle. Just curious, you are STILL able to get new OEM parts for this bike?

    Yep, there are still quite a few OEM or NOS parts that can be found. Depending upon what you may be wanting. I know that for the original rubber foot pegs these are literally unobtainium but after a few years of searching I finally found some. Thanks for the comments and interest.

    So Christmas has come and gone. What better way to welcome the new year than with an old motorcycle? Still available.

    You're crazy to sell this thing. I might drive from Houston to buy it! My 1st bike was a ts185.
