1979 Suzuki GT250 X7 For Sale

Well in all honesty when this 1979 Suzuki X7 was first shown to me. leaning against a wall up the end of a garage, where it had been for years, i nearly left it there. But as you know, these great icons of the 2T world in the late 70s are so sought after now that what are about tend to be fully restored and making big bucks or finished and like this one, almost beyond saving! What this one did have gong for it was although some previous owner had dressed it up (cant say fitted as that just wouldn't be true) in a nasty twin head light fairing, an RS250 Honda seat, and a GSX250 petrol tank, then to top it off painted it a nasty purple colour, it kicked over freely and had great compression so figuring the motor was good it came to us.
That was a good few months back and to be honest we are quite proud to of saved another one from the scrappy. Amongst the work done was so many new or good used parts i cant list them here but if really interested please contact us and we will go over it with you.
While now running and riding very well and still being more than capable of holding its own down the wiggly bits or laying a smoke trail away from the lights there is one important thing i will point out to perspective buyers is that it had done the common X7 chain trick at some point in its life. Suzuki's strange way of holding the front sprocket on with a toothed lock tab fails, this fires the chain off and results in varying levels of damage to the large l/ h engine side casing that doubles up as a chain case, from smashing it to pieces or just cracking it top and bottom. Invariably it takes out the thin alloy tab that's directly above the front sprocket, unfortunately this is not only part of the top casing and it also carries some of the engine number, this bike is no different and although we fabricated a small infill piece and sourced a better used casing (hiding behind some hens teeth) it still needed some welding on a crack, hence why its not a polished casing on that side. Just wanted to point that out.
So with all that in mind and the fact that while being very pretty, its not a mint bike, the asking price reflects this.

PS. For those of you that it matters to Yes, its a UK spec bike.

Acquired by MIS is 2019 this is an immaculate example maybe the best in the UK . We know little of the bikes history although we suspect it's a US import. Mechanically the bike required a fair amount of work but following a full service and a lot of electrical work it's now ready to be enjoyed.
