From shed to showroom
Suzuki TS50ER, Shaun Bolton, Crewe, Cheshire
Good luck to Jim with his
TS50ER build. I found mine in a shed in mid-wales along with 11 lawnmowers in October 2015. I finally talked the owner into selling it to me in April 2016. The bike is a 1982 X-reg with only 798 miles on the clock. After giving it a light restoration I think she came up well.
I could tell from the moment we pulled it out of the shed it was going to be a nice little bike. I’ve tried to keep the bike as original as possible and I was so pleased when she passed her MOT first time after nearly 20 years unused. Riding it is great fun although slow, and you have to get used to blokes of a certain age wanting to talk to you and trying to buy it.
Light resto proved perfect for this TS Gives our Jim a nice target to aim for
