Pictures of visitors' Suzuki motorcycles
|2001 Suzuki GSX-R1000
Owner: Gavin Cradock, UK
Purchased: Oct 2001
Comments: Adding Yoshimura Duplex race system with tri oval can + Power commander + K&N filter made a lot of difference!
Here's more Suzuki GSX-R1000 info.
Here's more Suzuki TS125 info.
|1976 Suzuki TS 125 D
Owner: Gary Jesswein, USA
Comments: I have not ridden a motorcycle in years (wish I still had the TS-185), but after I finish restoring my Mustang fastback I am planning on working on a orange 1976 TS-125 (see the picture) that I bought at automotive swap meet for $300.
It ran good when I bought it about 6 or 7 years ago, but letting sit for so long, the gas tank became rusty on the inside. Hopefully it will still run after I fix the gas tank problem.

|2000 Suzuki GSX 1200 Inazuma
Owner: Jürgen Hoche, Germany
Purchased: ? Owns a GSX1400 now.
Mods: small windshield, steel brake lines, superbike-lenker 80 cm, ritzel mit 17 zähne (?).
Comments: GSX1200 is not as nice as the GSX1400, not so strong, but lighter and much better in handling!!! I have made a trip to the Doilomiten at 2,700 meters above the sea twice with the GSX1200 - it was super!
In May 2002 i will make a trip there for the first time with my GSX1400.
|I'm currently looking for my next restoration project... a 1950's Suzuki?? ... K15?? ... Gaunt Suzuki trials bike (1965'ish)?? Ian wonders. If there is anyone out there who can help me find one or have any questions regarding my current restorations then please feel free to E-Mail on firstname.lastname@example.org ,” he continues.
||1967 Suzuki K10 P
Owner: Ian Holmes,
North Wales, UK
The same K10P as on the previous page. I thoght Ian's K10P is so beautiful that I put a couple of more pictures of it here.
Comments: The K10P was purchased at the Stafford Show October 2001 in a very poor state. 12 months later at the same show it had it's first show outing and came 3rd in the 1960's class (the GT came 1st in the 1970's class and ended up on the Classic Village stand at the International Bike Show at the NEC in Birmingham last November). A few weeks ago the K10 won 2nd place in the Vintage Jap Class at the Bristol Show... two outings and two prizes... I was very happy.
The rebuild has cost around £1,200 (originally purchased for £40!!) and most of the work was done by myself. I'm currently waiting for the finishing touches to come from Canada..... a new carrier, fuel tap and carburator. I hope to show it at Stafford in April. Its actually red in colour (it looks orange at the first picture) which together with black and blue were its original colours.
See even Ian's other beautifully restored bikes on pages 1, 43 and 60.
|1987 Suzuki GSX-R 1100
Owner: Lester Timm,
Cape Town, South Africa
Comments: This is my first bike, and also the bike I learnt to ride on, without a single fall or scratch on me or the bike, a 1987 GSX-R1100.
She has only 18,500 km on the clock and I bought her on +-12,000 km on the clock in 2000 and turned her into the stunning machine you see here!
She is still mostly standard except for a K&N filter, a few braided hoses and a Talbot s/s pipe!!!! She is done in four coats of gold chrome and four coats corsa purple over that and four coats of clear covering it all!
Mods done after pic was taken: dyno tuned; flush-mount front indicators; colour coded mirrors and yellow tinted screen and head light cover!

|The best thing to do on a TL - it gives much more respons to the rear wheel! Jeroen says.
|1997 Suzuki TL 1000 S
Owner: Jeroen van Beek,
Comments: My previous bikes were Suzuki GS500E, Yamaha FZ750 Genisis (pretty fast), and Honda CBR 600 (nice in the corners but not that fast).
The TL is by far my favourit. I like the looks, the feeling of handling the bike and the power of the V-twin. It's the best fun-bike I've had so far. I bought it in spring 2001 with about 19,000 km on the meter.
Mods: Mini carbon look flashers, conventional WP rear suspension instead of the rotation suspension.
