This motorcycle was listed on Iowa City craigslist, just begging to be bought. I knew I needed to buy it, especially because I was looking for a cafe racer project, and more importantly, a bike that ran. This is because I didn’t want to waste two good riding months before the roads became unrideable. The Suzuki TS400 restoration is going good, now that I made a little progress (more about that in a different post).
This motorcycle is just beautiful, and I am the third owner. The previous owners’ love for motorcycle shows… because of the amazing condition it is in, for a 32 year old motorcycle. I couldn’t be happier.
