    An Old, Stray Suzuki...caught my eye.

    Help me out here.

    I was out riding today...and there, on the main drag, chained to a lamp pole, was an old Suzuki dual-sport. Clean; well-cared for. FOR SALE sign on it...price $900.

    I didn't have the time to read the fine print or check the year...it was a 125 IIRC...maybe, a 150.

    What might it have been? It was street legal and had turn signals. I'd guess, circa 1980. For some reason I'm thinking of going back and offering the owner half that...

    It won't be greed which destroys America. It will be envy.

    Regular dirt-trail tires. Which, after eyeballing my TW all the time, look so pathetically small.

    I'm gonna try to roll by there again today, see if it's still out there. Might have just been set out over the weekend.

    Nothing on CL about it.

    Naw.

    I've got a plan of therapy. Like a twelve-step, only it's just three steps.

    ONE: Find canteen for a long summer walk.

    TWO: Start walking.

    THREE: Five miles later, hope the thing starts and the cops don't check my illegally-hanged plate.

    Nope. It was out today, also - and I stopped to look.

    Should have written the model down - S-something 125

    Tag on the frame head says 1982.

    I didn't take notes because on close inspection it's been put through the ringer. Dropped hard on the left side - the headlight switch is cracked and pieces missing. Turn signals, left side, front and rear, missing. It's low mileage; 2200 miles; and it hasn't been stored outdoors; but I don't know where you'd get switch parts. Or what kind of shape the engine will be after sitting around for decades.

    Girlfriend had a GN125. Super cheap parts all over ebay. I got a new carb, chain, both sprockets, 2 mirrors for well under a 100 bucks

    SP125?
