1967 Suzuki 250 Hustler Project Bike (No papers and more!!!)

Up on eBay right now is this really eye-catching Suzuki 250 project bike. All was well until I read that it has no papers. And then I read that the motor has no numbers on it. And then I read that the frame is missing numbers, too! If you have a way around this little problem, this is a really nice looking bike that needs a lot of work to be completed.

If you are actually interested in this bike, a couple of highlights are the Triumph twin-leading shoe brake and the new expansion chambers included in the sale. If you couldn’t figure out from the title of this post or the first paragraph, I’m a bit hesitant because of the lack of title-ability of the motorcycle. But maybe the VIN is just hidden under paint and/or powdercoat? Iffy at best…

1967 Suzuki X-6 Hustler Cafe Racer

Here is a mostly stock 1967 Suzuki X-6 Hustler. It appears that the only mod is the clubman bars. The owner seems to be honest about the condition, noting the fidgety transmission and the fact that the bike isn’t perfect.

I really like the Japanese bikes from this era. The shape of the tanks and the molded headlight nacelles (like the X-6 or the Honda Dream) mark this period and were consistent design cues within the Japanese motorcycle manufacturers in the 1960’s.

There’s only a few hours left on this auction (actually a Buy-It-Now or Best Offer), so hopefully this bike goes to a good home. If I still lived in Ohio, this would be within pick-up distance for me…
