1973 Suzuki GT250: The beginnings
1973 Suzuki GT250K cafe racer “Robyn” -> The beginnings
Every story has a beginning, and beginning has a bunch of pictures :). This is the 1973 GT250K. My ownership starts in 2010 with looking for a project for someone else, but I’ve ended up taking it on. Here’s a bunch of the photos to show where it started from
The bike itself probably counts as a barn find. Not exactly, but it had sat around for nearly 20 years. Some initial digging revealed a few things about it:
- Despite being sold as a 1975, it’s actually a 73 (as I suspected).
The engine is an early 74 though, so it is either a replacement motor or this bike was sold in 74 but at 73 specs.
- Original colour was red and white, rather than the house paint blue.
- Very low KM on the bike, and a bunch of accident damage left and right. But mostly complete, so that’s rather nice.
