I bought one of these in 1978, i was 14 and i truely miss this bike. Its a 1977 suzuki ts250, the best bike ive ever own and now the hardest to find at least in my area. Growing up in a little town(GooseLake,Ia) 250 people on a good year, rode many of gravel roads and trails with this bike, also used it in the winter for trapping. I would trade my 1974 honda cr250m and several other bikes for one of these. Oh the memories.

[IMG]file:///private/tmp/madams/Library/Caches/TemporaryItems/moz-screenshot.jpg[/IMG]Here's the one that got my cherry Dec 24, 1967. Sat on it all night on the carport waiting to ride next morning. Rode the piss out of it stone cold reliable. Which led to a 1970 Yamaha HT-1 (90cc), which begot a 1972 Yamaha RT 360.

You really want one we can work something out, I restored a 79 (oxblood) to the stage of about 2 hours of wiring needed and its NOS, it has new cables, top end, refreshed and shimmed bottom end (to new spec.) new springs and oil in tubes, new non-DOT tires. respoked wheels new sprokets and chains new NOS seat and NOS fenders PM me after the 17th of Jan when I get out of this frozen hell, we might work something out.
