They were little crackers the Suzuki 50s and 80s back on the 1960's and early 70's.
I had a M12 and thrashed the nuts off it for about a year and passed my bike test on it before getting a 250. Fond memories. 8)
Don't think I ever got a picture of it. Shame. :cry:


Don't think you'll ever get that basket started though Garry. I could show you how to weave though if you want to do a resto on it! :?

The bike looks like a great little project! Well worth restoring if you want a rare little bike. I'd say it would be quite a sweet machine with a lot of love and attention. Maybe not as fast as a Hayabusa, but quick enough to enjoy buzzing around town on.
I can see it costing you a few quid to restore, but not many to run
