|1973 Suzuki A80
Owner: Paul Kildegaard,
Comments: “This is a Suzuki A80, 1973 model. Ihave had it for a year now.
When i bought it, it was just a frame and wheels. A year has passed and it has been fully restored by myself.
I get a lot of people who are interested in the bike when I go for my Sunday ride.
It has only tr.aveled 120 km since the engine rebuild and it is a beautiful, smooth bike to ride. This is arguably Suzuki's best classic bike.
live in Perth, Western Australia, Australia. I would love to see it on your website.”

|1987 Suzuki VS 1400 Intruder
Owner: Thei Douven, the
Comments: “I started with my first Intruder Vs750 in '88 and in '92 I bought my brand new first Vs1400. I did chop that Vs1400 and painted it in broken white. It also became K+N airfilters and a Dynojet kit. I did chanche many things on that bike in the past 17 years. It was turning heads and it was very fast .But after 17 years I wanted something different. In 2009 I sold that lovely bike becourse I was spending more time on riding on my Vespa LX12.
But one month after it was sold , I missed the big Intruder and bought me an oldie Vs1400 from 1987. It was in bad condition. Winter 2009/2010 I did a total restauration on that California imported Vs1400, but I would like to restaurate this bike in a way it stays as much original as possible and not make all the chanches I did with my white Intruder that I sold.
Almost all the painting is new on this bike now in the stock black collor.
I also did remove (Chemical bath) all the chrome from all aluminium parts like, the triple trees- front and rear rims- risers- cylinder caps- left and right engine carter plates.
After that, all alu parts have been polished and now have a nice alu shine.
it was: two rims (they also became new Stainless steel spokes),
risers, clutch- and brake oil cylinders on the dragbar,
speedo counter ,
cylinder caps and carter plates.
I mounted new lower Showa shocks at the rear and new aluminium Forward controlls. Also the old header pipes did look bad and I ordered two new headerpipes for my bike in the USA.
A set of new mufflers. I did buy here in the Netherlands second hand and they look like new. I did find some very good 1987 mufflers here. All different years mufflers sound different and Suzuki did internal chanches every year to make them a litle quieter. One original 1987 intruder VS1400 does sound as loud as 8 intruders from 1996 together.
The only real problem the vs1400's do have is a slipping clutch after some 10.000 / 20.000 miles.
I have found some better clutch springs in USA and they can solve this problem and after renewing only that clutch springs,the stock clutch is good for more as 150.000 miles with that new heavyer springs.
Maintenenance I do myself on this bike once a year and it does'nt nead mutch maintenance. Without the clutch problem, I did'nt have any technical problems with all my intruders in the past years. 3.000 miles on speedo now.”

|1968 Suzuki T 305
Owner: Tony Yarosk,
San Jose, California
Comments: “I am the original owner of a 1968 Suzuki T305. I have owned it since new in 1968. It is still in my possession after all these years. Back in the day, this bike was my only transportation. I rode it rain or shine for 3 years. I took it on 2 long trips, the longest being 4,000 miles in 1971. I also took it to the local dragstrip and clocked a 15.33 second quarter mile time. The bike has a total of 36,000 miles. The crank was rebuilt at 32,000. I hardly ride it anymore, but it still looks nice in the garage.”

|1979 Suzuki PE 250
1980 Suzuki JR 50
Owner: Brandon Ford,
Comments: “This is my PE250, looks aweful but runs like a champ. It's an everyday rider for me. Carb leaks gas but everything else still works!
I ride that bike around in the desert often. Always starts, always runs.
I also have this little one, a '80 JR50. It runs... Two choices on transmission, go and neutral.”

1976 Suzuki CM 50 Mini CRO
Moscow region, Russia
Comments: “I would to send to you some information about a bit rare Suzuki model - CM50.
Today I finished to assembly it. The bike is now in good conditions. Amount of original parts are about 95% — unfortunately I haven't bought new original speedometer and taillight, because it is very expencive.
It seems that the Suzuki CM50 was a transitional model betweenthe '74 TS50 and'75 TS75. The engine comes from the TS50 andthe frame from the TS75.
This small 50cc bike can drive with 85 kg man up to 90 km/h.”
There was also a CM75 ”Mini Cro”, Suzuki's answer to the popular Yamaha GT50 ”Mini Tore” cross bike. You can call it Japan's first motard. Ir was basically a TS75 with smaller wheels.
The CM75 had a 72cc engine with 6.5 hp.
Both CM models had 4-speed transmission.
