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.

Suzuki T-20 and AS-50 Sports
Pictures from Brighton Show (Tekniikan Maailma 10/1969). Click to enlarge.
I found these pictures on the Finnish Tekniikan Maailma magazine. The magazine covered the '69 International Cycle And Motorcycle Show in Brighton, UK. The racing styled Crooks Suzuki (based on a T20) and the AS50 Sports were the bikes that were mentioned from Suzuki.
The author told that the T20 could be made this delicious looking by adding a racing fairing, aluminum fuel tank, racing saddle etc. Eddie Crooks broke several world records in August 1968 with a bike looking exactly like this one. The text mentioned two records: 1.000 km with a speed of 151,786 km/h and 12 hours with a speed of 149,306 km/h.
About the AS50 Sports was told that it had five speeds, Posi-force lubrication system, Reed valve, flashers, scrambler styled good-looking exhaust system and it was easy to trim. The price in UK was 129£ and the maximum speed about 90 km/h.
