1978 Suzuki X7, bought, built and used for classic sprints, raced only a handful of times last year, runs low 14's high 13's all day long, probably quicker with a lighter rider on board! Frame has been de-lugged, no side stand, no electrics other than ignition/kill switch, has a "daytime use" MOT which I obtained in order to tune and test as necessary. No side panels and also no Guillari seat, now sold as was going to fit a TZR solo style race  seat. Fast and reliable, nice tight engine, plenty of compression. Fitted with a tuned Stan Stephens 275cc top end, plenty of mid range and strong top end. Starts easily and sounds lovely!

I recently fitted the new headlight (LC style) and tail light as was going to wire up lights via a reg/rectifier to the magneto as they will work without a battery. I've got an original loom (supplied). There is no switchgear either. Bike also has a Redline clutch fitted and a very nice braced JMC swinging arm, original Raask rearsets and small can Microns solid but have the usual kickstart dent plus a few age related battle scars, look fine though (see pics). Chain and sprockets are good, tyres are excellent and the forks were overhauled last Spring with fresh fluid and seals. Tidy for year but not a original and not a show pony! Only selling as fancy something different to race on this year. To re-iterate the bike is exactly as seen in the pictures less the seat!
