bought this off ebay on a whim last year



1975 Suzuki RV125M desert / beach bike - registered from new in the UK and in need of a full restoration. Even has the much sought after original tyre inflator Very Happy

As I don't have the free time that 2bims enjoys, my restorations take a while longer, but as of last week, it is now a restored rolling chassis

powder blue and pearlescent white are my "corporate" colours for my one-offs. But this is a back-to-standard resto - they fetch more money like this. Very Happy

no - but only because it will be vinyl-wrapped.

The TDRGV will be white overlaid with the 3 Suzuki blues (light / mid / dark).

TS185 Rural cafe Racer is in "Hermitage Bikes" colours........

and a nice stable mate for it that I found abandoned in Amsterdam.......







after I posted these pictures on Farcebook, someone from Amsterdam informed me that it wasn't abandoned, just that most Amsterdam runabout's looked this rough.



I beg to differ.................... Very Happy

Very tidy indeed. Wheels and exhaust especially look 'factory fresh'
