This very rare old 1975 Suzuki GT185-M Sport bike has recently been imported from Colorado North America where it has spent all its life. The air is thin, the climate & atmospheric conditions are far nicer than we struggle on with here in the UK & have helped this old girl keep her looks. It was taken off the road back in 1989 and has been in dry storage for the last 23/Twentythree years.

PLEASE CHECKOUT THE LARGE PHOTO’s…. As you can see this bike is virtually complete missing just the horn. The seat cover has a few small tears – it needs recovering. The headlight is a non-standard item. BUT this bike has a lot to offer – The rest is very original.

THIS IS THE REAL DEAL….Not restored, this is original – Not over the top, polished better than new or re-built with after market bits – This is original. Wheels are true with nice chrome rims, good disc, caliper with working master cylinder & fantastic rear brake plate. Forks & yokes are straight with great alloy & chrome. Head light hangers are very good. Switches & clocks look great and are working however there is no horn, Hi-beam isn’t working nor is the starter solenoid?. Tank has minor dents but is clean inside and side panels are very nice. Chrome mud guards are both presentable – front has small scuffs on the front edge. Seat base is very good, solid throughout. The exhausts are again super solid throughout with nice chrome as are the shox, chain guard, indicators & tail light assy. Carburetors are free sliding off the twist grip. The engine is cosmetically very clean, it turns over nicely off the kick starter – we fitted a new battery, added some fresh fuel and it starts & runs as crisp as a crispy thing eating crisps! – sounds awesome & that smell….FANTASTIC!!! …we have ridden it around the car park – NICE!!!

This is your chance to own this fantastic piece of Suzuki sports motorcycling history. The bike is going to make such an easy yet rewarding restoration – something you can take to concourse & well worth investing your time & brass on.

We are listing this bike as a trade clearance item with a bonkers low starting price & NO RESERVE

Please call NEIL WILSON or MARK RUSHTON on 01782 861100 ext 241 or 244 who will be more than happy to answer any questions you have, and can facilitate viewing of this bike.
