Suzuki A50 brochures & adverts

I have put some Suzuki A 50 brochures and adverts on this page. I would be grateful of any contributions — sales brochures, magazine ads, magazine articles, pictures, specs, facts, corrections etc. Please scan the material in JPEG format (large enough that all the details are visible) and send them to me. Please tell me the source and the publication date if possible. If you send me pictures of your own bike, please follow these instructions.

Model history 1969 —
The Suzuki A100 was a long-running basic model with a simple two-stoke disc-valve engine, pump lubrication and four speeds. It was introduced in 1967 and actually manufactured even today, at least for Asian and Indonesian markets. A 50 cc version called A50 was released in 1969, looking almost identical with its big brother. In between the two models fitted also A80, a 72 cc version of the A100.
The A50 had five speeds and a good town performance. Not many changes were made during the year. The A50 was basicly the same bike even in the seventies. Some later models were offered with a front disc brake.
I'm not sure how long the model was manufactured but the A50 was still around at the end of the 1970's, perhaps even later.

1979 A50P sales brochure from Holland (2 pages). Click to enlarge This brochure scan was sent to me by Johan, courtesy of Suzuki Bromfietsen. The brochure was printed in August 1978 so I'd guess the model year is 1979 (could also be 1978 if the Suzuki Holland printed the brochure very late in the year). The ”P” in the model name stands for ”pedals”. Pedals were required on all mopeds in the Netherlands.
Sorry about the samll image size.when this was sent me was 600 x 432 pixels quite decent size. The monitors were smaller back in 2001.
