1991 Suzuki RGV250M
What’s the story? It’s been off the road since 1996 and spent most of its life in the back of a garage. Circumstances meant it was laid up when I moved from Devon to London and then I just never had the time to do anything with it. In the pics it’s getting its first clean since the ’90s; there’s quite a lot of patina but most of it seems to be just surface stuff.
Progress so far? Fortunately, it’s spent its whole life in a dry garage so it’s not suffered too badly. I’m going to have to repaint the bodywork and apply new stickers. It won’t be Suzuki original quality but should still look fine. In my infinite wisdom after binning it years ago, I thought the bike would look good in red. Idiot. I still have an unpainted NOS fairing to go on plus the rest of the bodywork, all of which will be returned to blue and white.
What’s next? It should be back on the road for this summer hopefully to join our posse of NC30, CBR400RR and FZR400.
DEP mufflers always a welcome addition (blue too)
