1980 Suzuki TS185ER
Owner: Sean Clarkson, Accrington, Lancs Owned for: two and a half years So far: barn find to complete nut and bolt resto What’s next? full resto of an GT200 X5
Iwanted to do a full resto after reading the mag. I’m a complete novice with all things mechanical but I have loads of enthusiasm. I like Suzuki two-strokes and I’ve never owned a trail bike so the Suzuki TS range appealed to me. I found a TS185ER on ebay in January 2016 and made a cheeky offer which to my amazement was accepted. I realised it was missing quite a few parts and wasn’t the bargain I thought it was. It really has been a labour of love and I’ve tried to keep the bike as original and genuine as possible but with one eye on costs.
That’s a pretty good job of work for a first resto
