Re: 1976 Suzuki

Love it!!! I remember reading the article in MiniCycle/BMX Action on these when they first came out... cool

The best Japanese designed BMX bike by far at that point. They blew Yamaha and Kawasaki away because they listened and worked, with American riders and builders from SoCal.

Killer build!

Re: 1976 Suzuki

Very very very  nice restoration.......I remeber racing a kid at the Auburn Wa Downhill  back in 77 who had one, his older brother had one also. Maybe it was you ?

I just scored a Suzuki frame on craigslist today....it came from Bothell Wa. It has been re-welded several times already and no forks....the guy found it in a garage sale and he kept the 3 pcs cranks for his single speed. Maybe it was yours......there where only a few in our area back then.

Take care

Awesome job! I landed a Suzuki today...all original off of ebay. I don't know if I will leave it all original or trick it out like yours. Been looking for this bike for quite awhile!

Re: 1976 Suzuki

This is the same bike my best friend rolled as a kid. One day he got a flat on the front, so we took his front wheel off and bolted the forks to the back wheel of my goose and we "snaked" our way home! Thats 12 year old fixes.
