First registered 02-08-1978 with Just two previous owners. One years MOT as of 05-06-2024. When the new owner registers it as a Historic Vehicle as it’s over 40 years old, it will have vehicle tax exemption and MOT’s are no longer needed. The current MOT was done to show everything works as it should. I have recently had the bike recommissioned as it’s been off the road since 1980, this included a full Carburetor rebuild, some of the parts needed to do this are now unobtainable from Suzuki but managed to find a company in Germany that hand make from brass the parts needed. It now runs beautifully. As you can see from the pictures this bike has not been used or cleaned for 44 years, a true garage/ barn find, last change of keeper on the V5 is 10-12-1980. So it’s mechanically fine but cosmetically challenged. It would be ideal for restoration, using as is or making into a restomod.
