Selling a nice clean vintage 1974 Honda MR50 Elsinore kids minibike. This is a neat little vintage machine that appears to be in great original condition. I dont know a ton about the MR50, but I was told this was all original. Sold with a bill of sale only. Not registered in the state of CA. I bought it to ride back and fourth to my mailbox. I have had it for about 2 years and it runs well. Tank and seat are in great shape for the bikes age. I think its all original, right down to grips, but I am not an expert on the MR 50's. The plastic is in great shape but has normal scuffing from age. Please look closely at the pics. I would not call it mint, but I would call it a very clean rider. Everything is straight, bars, levers, pegs. The brake lever tip is broke off, but its a clean break. This is a cool bike because it is both a two stroke AND it has a working clutch. All the other Honda mini's are four strokes and automatic. This would make a great addition to your collection or use as a pit bike or a rider. The boring stuff (but please read):Shipping: I suggest you use Daily Direct for transport. Their phone number is 888-haulbikes, and they are professionals with a strong track record of moving expensive and nice motorcycles. Daily Direct offers door to door "roll on" and "roll off" service. I can ship anywhere in the USA with Daily Direct for $450. I can and will ship international, but the buyer must coordinate this, as the process can be cumbersome. I will assist as best as possible and do have really good access to shippers to the UK, Europe and Australia. I can also ship to the middle east as well. But please note that all paperwork will be handled by the buyer. I dont do paperwork very well. Seller Notes: If you are a serious buyer and have the money in hand, I am happy to talk to you on the phone about whatever questions or interest you have in the bikes. But please, no time wasters or tire kickers. If you are a serious buyer, it is available to be shown for you or to an agent of your choice. I always suggest you have someone review a bike before buying, but realize it is not always practical, as sometimes matter of opinion on condition can be different. But I am not looking for tire kickers or time wasters. The bike is located in Northern California. Payment: A $500 non refundable deposit is due within 24 hours of closing, or a friendly phone call or clear email on who you are and how you intend to close the deal. I am very easy to work with, but a little clear communication goes a long way with me. We will take payment however is easiest for you for to send, as we understand that some buyers might be out of the country. Cash, bank to bank payment, bank check, Paypal, WU, Carrier Pidgin - whatever - but as long as it clears our bank and you are not playing the Nigerian lottery with me, I could care less how it comes. Just make sure it comes. My bikes are always for sale locally and I reserve the right to end the listing at any time if a local buyer comes forward. In case you are wondering anything about me as a seller, I have been on eBay since 1998 (thats over 16 years) and have not one negative feedback. I am just a nut for older dirt bikes and ATV's from the 1980's. I have a nice collection of bikes that I have built up over 15 years of collecting and messing about. I have several others that I am selling, including several 85 - 86 250r's and 350x's, as well as a 86 200x and a 86 atc250sx. I am clearing out some bikes to make room for other projects, so hit me up if you are interested in one of them.. See my other listings for some more of my stuff, but I doubt I will get around to listing all of them.

1974 Honda MR50 Elsinore A little History on the Honda MR50 Elsinore; It is an off road mini cycle made by Honda. It was manufactured in Japan by Honda and imported first to Australia and the United States in 1974 and continued to be available in the USA, Canada and Australia until production was discontinued in 1975. It was patterned after the CR125 and CR250 Elsinores. Like its big brothers it has spoke wheels, knobby tires, and plastic fenders. The engine was a 49 cc (3.0 cu in), air-cooled, two-stroke with 3 speed manual clutch transmission. Starting is a primary kick on the right side of the bike. The bike used conventional controls just like larger models. The shift pattern is neutral at the bottom and 3 up. Lubrication; premix at 25:1. The exhaust has a spark arrestor. This bike's mechanicals have been restored; with the engine and transmission rebuilt, new clutch, frame sandblasted and powder coated. Wheels have been professionally trued. It runs and shifts as it should. The fuel tank paint is in great original condition. This is a real beauty. You will not be disappointed with your purchase. No Title - Sold with bill of sale This vehicle is sold as is whereas no warranties apply or are implied.

Blue Book "Value Guide" for a Nice Example of a Vintage Providenceis Aprox.. $7,500.00 & Motorcycle Action Magazine thought a Nice 1973 CR 125M was worth ~$10,000.00 even a SUPER UGLY all red 1976 CR 125 would NADA Value Guide for over DOUBLE of My Ridiculously Low buy it now would be for this bike...(So YES ! ...If you will notice my Buy it Now is a small fraction that !!! & Good Luck finding a CR 125 that looks as Nice as This Wonderful Bike.. especially one that has so low Hours on her & with the PROVIDENCE of being in the Largest Motorcycle Show On EARTH in the Prestigious VJMC Clubs Booth !!!!!!!..Also, Keep in mind.This is a "California" Motorcycle which for Most any Classic Vehicle etc etc typically Brings considerably More money than bikes from other parts of the country & makes Her More Collectible...Also,This is the Very Last Year that Honda Made these CR 125M's with the Factory TUNED Pipe Provided as you would also see on a 1973-76 CR 125M & I believe this may be the last year of the ORIGINAL PRE REED Engines !!! Which Makes this FAR More Vintage Raceable as this again I think this was the Very last year of the Piston Port Induction AMAZING Air Cooled HONDA ELSINORE CR 125M !!! & I believe these CR 125M to be ..a Very Spirited & I think should be a "A Potentially, Competitive Vintage Racing bike" & I am offering this for a Small Fraction of that amount with a "Buy it Now" (Believe it or Not)...of well under 2K US dollars which may sound like a fair amount of money but consider this...." Everyone I have talked to as (Well as N.A.D.A. Value Guide) states that a Really Nice CR 125M would sell for well over DOUBLE that Amount !! ..Also, Recently, I have seen several of these bikes that were Very Beat & Very Faded Not much left of them ...TOTALLY UN-LIKE THIS AMAZING BEAUTY was just had a cosmetic Restoration had done to her) selling for MORE $$$$ than my Ridiculously Low Buy It Now Price" & again they were ALL UN (NOT) Beautifully Cosmetically Restored like this wonderful Bike, & NOT having almost Brand New tires etc etc etc & again most bikes I have seen in this bikes price range.... looked to be (VERY): Beat, Raw, UN-Cosmetically restored or Rebuilt etc..& More importantly all were UN-(NOT) Beautifully transformed to look like as Nice & did not Run As GREAT as this Beauty! & don't forget this Wonderful bike was in covered Storage for the better part (the Bulk) of it's life (Approx. 30+ years !!!!!!) & you will be the First New Owner since her Wonderful cosmetic restoration as detailed in this auction.

We also Cleaned the Entire Fuel system & added a Quality Inline Fuel Filter, & "We Installed The VERY BEST "MODAL" Trans Mission Oil". The Front and rear suspension visually looked good & it's Suspension seals did not appear to be leaking at this time so other than to clean them & refinished the lower Alloy fork legs , shock etc etc etc (IE) as far as fluid levels etc. they are just as we received them and we have not tested the suspension as we are just now getting the Bike Running again & completing the cosmetic restoration on this Beautiful Bike, Over and Beyond this...In Her Cosmetic Restoration process..We removed most Every Main Component on the bike...nearly all the way down to her "Bare Frame" + Cleaned & refinished most every main component then hand reassembled ~every main item back onto her frame again "Piece by Piece"..

We also cleaned, painted & refinished the; Frame, Hubs, Spokes, Exhaust Pipe (Tuned Exhaust system) & Her Original HONDA CR 125 Down Pipe Exhaust System. We repainted her Nice Front fender & her rear fender etc.& we painted everything to match to a look very close to what I think a 1973-4 Vintage RACING CR 125M Tribute Built from a 1976 CR 125 ELSINORE race bike should look like & or would have looked NEW like back in the day ! . We installed Brand New High Quality Vintage style rubber handlebar Hand Grips. Her Transmission Gears Shift GREAT, Her Clutch Releases & Grips GREAT !!! She is just coming out of Dry Storage Important thing is the Clutch does Grip GREAT !. She has BRAND NEW Gear Box OIL "MODOL" which is said to be the Very Best Gear Transmission Oil you can get) She has Nice Original Fork Tube Rubbers which I think look & Feel almost like Brand New looking Rubber Fork seals, She has almost "BRAND NEW" looking Vintage style MX Racing handlebars.

It is a Beautiful tribute & is technically about teh Very Best of Both Worlds (IE) World Class 1973 -74 Beauty & Paint work (these were said to be one of the very Most Beautiful Dirt Racing Bikes ever Built !!! & being made from a 1976 HONDA ELSINORE She has aprox. Twice As Much Suspension travel as a 73 !!! Again Most Vintage Racers would say this is the very Best of Both Worlds !!!!!!!!!! but therefore would be something Better Suspension wise than a 1973-4 CR 125M ELSINORE & FAR More Beautiful than a 1976 HONDA CR 125M ELSINORE !!!!!!!!!!! ....Again, if you truly need a perfectly Stock vintage Racing bike ...you may want to please look elsewhere as I am not sure what all that would be about & again, this was NOT Built to be a SHOW or Concourse Bike etc....But, I can tell you ...

"Hour after Hour" Our Vintage Racing CR Bike Repeatedly Drew "HUGE" crowds of "on lookers" as many a nearly any other bike in our Vintage Japanese MC Clubs Booth !!!! ..I personally Think of this bike as a Potentially WONDERFUL Vintage Dirt Racing Bike ...& I believe these CR 125 HONDA ELSINORE bikes By Nearly All MC Enthusiasts are Considered Extremely Beautiful & also Fairly Rare & hard to Find these days !!! especially one as NICE looking as this Wonderful bike ...If I had a Man Cave in my Home ..I personally would put this Magnificent VINTAGE Motorcycle in the Highest Place of HONOR as I think it is a Very Beautiful, Functional & Very Purposely Built and Graceful Motorcycle !

How to get a good Shipping Quote: I can give you a source for an international Shipping Quote.. In the past I have had a lot of emails with shipping quotes all over the map...Therefore, When you try and Get a Shipping Quote... I would try & get several (many) shipping quotes (& get a estimated pick up date in writing) before you commit or finalize a deal & or make a deposit) with a shipper... as one of the last bikes I sold out of our collection went to North Carolina via USHIP.COM, (which is about 3,000 miles from here)...it was a 1975 YAMAHA 400 Enduro which weights nearly about double of what this auctions Magnificent 1976 HONDA ELSINORE CR 125M Vintage Racing bike Beauty Weights ( I would estimate only about 195 pounds!!!) & he was only charged about 330 US dollars a few months ago...I think ebay may have a shipping site, but if you want a very competitive rate I would go thru Uship.com & get "Lots of Bids"...Keep in mind, I live Very Close to the Business Hub of Los Angeles & Also the L.A. Harbor areas & Millions of Trucks leave this area every day all you need to do is find a truck that has a little space & that is headed in your direction & I am sure the price would be a lot better for you than with some trucker that is not ! Again, If you need a shipper I would get "Lots of Quotes" (I have always had Great Luck with USHIP.COM & plan on "the rates will vary widely" (IE) as a trucker that is already here in Los Angeles Area & is already planning on going your direction will be a lot different rate than someone that is not already here & is not going in your direction...Also, please remind the trucking Co. you are getting the quote from that ..."This bike is a relatively nimble + very simple dirt bike & ONLY weights about 195 Pounds" (It is NOT a "HUGE" 700 pound Harley etc) So the Shipping rate should be FAR Cheaper & Should definitely reflect that difference.Also, If it will get you a better Shipping Rate Also, I will deliver this bike to any Los Angeles Area Based Shippers Distribution yard for "FREE" & or if you live out of the Country I will deliver this Bike to any Los Angeles Based International Shipper yard in the Los Angles Area for FREE !!!!!!!!!!!!!! "PLEASE NOTE": RESERVE IS : "THE BUY IT NOW PRICE" (WHICH I HAVE ALREADY LOWERED Aprox $500.00 ) For a Quick "No Brainer" Sale...A Nice example of a 73-74 Vintage Racing HONDA ELSINORE CR 125M NADA.com Value Guides (Blue Books) for aprox. $7,500.00 & Moto Cross Action magazine estimated a 1973-4 CR 125M HONDA ELSINORE would be worth up to ~$10,000.00...I went to a lot of effort to make this look like a STUNNING 1973 CR 125M ELSINORE & Not a Painfully ugly all red (Yuck) 76 CR 125M ELSINORE that would still NADA,com Value Guide for Over $4,000.00..With This Wonderful Vintage Racing Bike You Get the Very Best of Both Worlds 1973 ELSINORE Looks with the Vastly Superior 1976 SUSPENSION & Updated "Better Power Band" !!!

Posted Over 1 Month

Just Last Month 11/20/15 This Beautiful Bike & Two Other of my Bikes were in the "WORLDS LARGEST MOTORCYCLE SHOW" ...The Los Angeles Area "Progressive Cycle Worlds MC Show" in the "VINTAGE JAPANESE Motorcycle Clubs Booth !!!!!! This year was our 3 of the 10 Bikes Were chosen to be in our Clubs Booth !! Over the past 4 years we have had We have had 14 Bikes in our VJMC Clubs Booth ! So Yes the bike you are Bidding on is the Bike Pictured Below in Our Clubs Booth !!!!!! This Fairly Rare Early 1970's TS 400cc Beauty Looks a bit like a earl;y 1970's SUZUKI 400 (Looks a little Like Roger DeCosters Race Bike with lights ) So I guess this is a Tribute Style bike. This bike was only used a couple of years and was not ridden hard at all (as her Near Perfect Engine cases & Rims fenders etc etc Show very well !!This wonderful Bike was Originally Sold here in Southern Calif Originally as a Dual Purpose" STREET BIKE the owner lived near the national Forest area & so he re-purosed the bike for more off road use & after a while sold his cabin & since that time this Wonderful Bike has sat in Dry Storage Since aprox.1979 according to the Original Owner till we started her Cosmetic Restoration that we are just now completing !!!!! I think This STUNNING , VERY SPIRITED & GOOD RUNNING Bike is a DREAM ! These TS 400 bikes are FAR MORE FORGIVING & Less Explosive to Ride as compared to a Dirt Racing only TM 400's & RM 400 as the TS 400 have a little more Torque & are Far More Controllable & FAR Easier to Start compared to the Typical 400cc Dirt Racers....* * PLEASE NOTE: this TS 400 (a TS is a lot like suzuki's Street Legal version of the TM or RM W/Lights SUZUKI Is I think this may be one of the latter more refined years of the FAR Simpler & FAR More RELIABLE & DURABLE Vintage RACE-ABLE Air Cooled TS 400 Two Stroke Engines & I believe this is also a Vintage Raceable DUAL SHOCK, REAR SWING ARM SUSPENSION SYSTEM" this makes this TS 400 a little like a TM 400 or RM 400 than earlier TS 400's & Best of all these are designed as a Street Legal ENDURO "DUAL SPORT" Use Etc etc & Not just Dirt Racing ...Please keep in mind She has all of her Charging Circuit+Lights are present..But, this bike was repurposed off road so will need all lights+gadges reconnected Again to Be 100% street legal again....I have sold several of these SUZUKI PE's and YAMAHA IT's to people that make them into a more Street " Bobber " (Cafe Racer) Bike .. (3 went to just Miami Florida ! this year alone !!!) Many People also use these for Vintage Dirt ENDURO RACING Bikes ... Again...She is a Fairly LOW HOUR Bike that was owned by an older gentleman & she sat in Covered Storage for the Majority of her Life..(Again, his was owned by an older Gentleman who owned this for many years & this has always been a "Southern California Bike" as she has been here in CALIFORNIA to the best of my knowledge the Bulk of her Life !!! & Best of all She STARTS SUPER EASY & just as she sits She RUNS Overall VERY GOOD Again.. More Importantly she appears that she was used Very Little in Her lifetime (Look at Her Original 1974 Seat Which was Rebuilt from the frame Up & looks & Feels Great !!!!) TITLE ! ! ! ! !* * * * * IMPORTANT * * * * * "UP COMING * AUCTIONS ALERT" * * * IMPORTANT ....PLEASE NOTE:>>..... But just so everyone can be ready & be looking out for them ...We are in the process of losing more of our Vintage Bike Storage Therefore..over the next few days I will also be listing several of my TWO STROKE Vintage Racer Bike Collection... several YAMAHA YZ 490's + 465s + 400's + & IT 490's + 400's 250's & 175's also 72, 73, 74 250 MX's & also AT-1s DT-1s CT 1's & HT-1s ENDURO's + HONDA "CR 500R" + CR 250 +1976 & 1979 CR 125M ELSINOREs *& also a 1973 CR 250 Engine & 2 Vintage 1970s ELSINORE CR 125Rs + also ELSINORE MT's 250 & 125's etc etc ~1982 KTM 250 + KTM ~1975 "Air Cooled" 175 & or 400 Dual Class "Twin Shock" Vintage Racers & a 1982 KTM 250 a ~HUSQVARNA 1978 175 & a 1982 250 etc etc..I have Aprox. 70 bikes Some are restored most are Ready to Restore...& are Priced Accordingly, & all are well under NADA Values & all will bepriced very fairly.... .... & also PLEASE NOTE: Her new owner just did a lot of extensive engine Rebuilding on Her a couple of Months ago...Since then We are just completing her Brand New cosmetic Restoration (as Detailed & Listed above & below etc.. (No More & No less)...& "YOU" can be the LUCKY Very First Owner of this Beautiful Bike since Her Cosmetic Restoration was completed ! * * PLEASE NOTE: the PE 400 (is a lot like an RM W/Lights SUZUKI Is I think "The VERY last year of the FAR Simpler & FAR More Vintage RACE-ABLE Air Cooled Two Stroke Engines & I believe this is the First YEAR of the DUAL SHOCK Vintage Race-able REAR "ALLOY" SWING ARM SUSPENSION SYSTEM" this makes this PE 400 FAR More like a RM 400 than Earlier PE 400s were. ...& YES ! ..I have the "Signed off" California TITLE & Also.....We Even a copy of this Wonderful bikes "ORIGINAL SUZUKI CERTIFICATE OF MANUFACTURE" !!! I have also, the DMV Current computers Print out on this Wonderful Bike and she has NO back fees & NO Back Taxes etc etc owing on this bike at this time ...Please see further Title information listed below *..Most M/C RACING Enthusiasts Agree the Vintage Racing 400 PE's and RMs are one of the Most Beautiful Most Responsive + Best Handling & Best Turning Vintage Dirt RACING Bikes of this Era...EVER MADE ! For a Large Displacement 400cc Originally Intended by SUZUKI to be a Street Legal This Wonderful Bike I think She feels very Light Weight & AMAZINGLY NIMBLE + Well Balance & She Feels Very Light, Natural & Extremely AGILE...I & Most Enthusiasts believe, These TS 400s + TM's & RM's etc Vintage Racing SUZUKI's are "WORLD CLASS" Motocross Vintage Dirt Racing Motorcycles ! Many M/C Enthusiasts feel that No Other Bike from this ERA Turned as Well as a Racing SUZUKI !!! She has Nice Alloy Leg Forks & Vintage Race-able Rear DUAL SHOCK Shock rear Suspension SWING ARM Rear Suspension* * * This AMAZING Suspension was Like "ROCKET SCIENCE" for a Dual Sport Bike back in this ERA ! & YES ! *** I invite you to please check this out....The N.A.D.A. Blue Book "Value Guide" for a Vintage SUZUKI is FAR more than what I am asking for her ... YES ! You could own this Great Running bike for Far Less !

("Especially wit hso little use & also in the condition of this Wonderful Bike") ..& Best of All ...At A Very Small Fraction of what Most People would have to pay for a bike that looks anywhere near as Nice as this SWEET VINTAGE RACING Beauty ! ! ( Please Note* * I have her listed for a Fraction of what Top Blue Book Would Be ...& maybe More Importantly I feel as indicated above that this is a Very Low Time Bike that has been very well cared for, & that has been used so little ...This Extensively Cosmetically Restored Beauty has been in Dry Storage Stored the majority of the time over her Lifetime up (~35 years) until very recently & you will be First New Owner since this was Just Now Completed !!! . This is a GREAT Find ...Being used very little since she was new & After several years in Dry Storage ...We had just recently got this Wonderful bike completed again since her FRESH Cosmetic restoration .. she typically always Starts RIGHT UP Again & Overall She runs Very Good !!!!...This Bike LOVES TO RUN !!!*..Most M/C Enthusiasts Agree the Vintage Racing SUZUKI 400 TM's & RMs & 400 PE's are one of the Most Beautiful Most Responsive & FASTEST Vintage Dirt RACING Bikes EVER MADE from this ERA ! * *IMPORTANT * * Recently (December 2013 & 2014) This auction bikes cousins a Wonderful 1978 RM SUZUKI 250 & also our ELSINORE CR 250 we Displayed at the "WORLDS LARGEST" MOTORCYCLE SHOW" (the Cycle World / Progressive Motorcycle Show, (Los Angeles, California Area)..in Our "Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Clubs" Booth earlier (December 6,7 & 8th 2013 & 1014). Look to the right of the 3rd pictures which shows a Local Los Angeles TV News Crew interviewing Out VGMC Clubs President (in the Red & White Shirt) on the Shows Opening day ! ! ! PLEASE NOTE: The above are Pictures of this auctions Vintage Racing 1983 SUZUKI PE 400 (Dec. 2013 & November 2014) we Displayed at the "WORLDS LARGEST" MOTORCYCLE SHOW" ("The Cycle World / Progressive Motorcycle Show", (Los Angeles, California area)..in Our "Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Clubs" Booth earlier (December 7-8-9th 2013 & 2014). Also, The White & Black Suzuki Road Racer at the end of he row next to our VJMC clubs sign (3 bikes to the right of our 250 RM Suzuki) was one of two bikes of it's Exact type in Existence and I was told by most everyone there that it was Pretty much "Priceless" ! * * "PLEASE READ * BEFORE BIDDING" * * & Please Bid Responsibly ..In fairness of everyone involved in this auction..."As Ebay Recommends" .. Please, "Do Not Bid" Until ALL of your Questions have been answered Any and any & ALL Inspections have been preformed etc. are made to your Satisfaction and any & ALL information has been Gained from your Research ...so that YOU are Totally Comfortable & ALL of this Needs to be Done "LONG BEFORE YOU BID" on this Wonderful 1983 Vintage PE 400 SUZUKI VINTAGE MX & or ENDURO Dirt Racing SUZUKI RM Like PE 400...

"Please come by & see this AMAZING Bike "BEFORE YOU BID" ...Again, If you live fairly Close & you are a serious Buyer ..I Invite you to Please Come By & Check her Out "BEFORE YOU BID" ...As this item requires a 500 dollar NON refundable Good Faith Deposit...& As Ebay will tell you "Your Bid is a Legal & Biding Contract & should be taken Seriously" ..as every Responsible person knows ...Irresponsible Bidding Only Ruins EVERYTHING for EVERYONE else involved in the auction. ..If .. You have always Loved the Looks , Power & handling + Very Use-able POWER of one of these Vintage PE 400s & RM SUZUKI's & have Dreamed of Owing one of these ... this may be a "GOLDEN Opportunity" for You to finally get the Bike of Your DREAMS ..& Best of All ...At A Very Small Fraction of what Most People would have to pay for a bike that looks anywhere near as Nice as this SWEET VINTAGE MX / ENDURO etc VINTAGE RACING RIDE ! ! ( I have her listed at a fraction of what Top Blue Book Would Be (Please see details below):. * * * The N.A.D.A. Blue Book "Value Guide" for a Vintage 1974 SUZUKI TS 400 or RM ..Also, Keep in mind.This is a "California" Motorcycle which for Most any Classic Vehicle etc etc typically Brings considerably More money than bikes from other parts of the country & makes Her More Collectible...Also,This is the Very Last Year that SUZUKI Provided these AMAZING Air Cooled TS 400 SUZUKI's !!! & I believe these TS 400 RM 400's & RM 400s to be ..a Very Spirited & I think should be a "A Potentially, Truly Competitive Vintage Racing bike" & I am offering this for a Fraction of that amount with a "Buy it Now" (Believe it or Not)...of well under 2K US dollars which may sound like a fair amount of money but consider this...." Everyone I have talked to as (Well as N.A.D.A. Value Guide) states that a Really Nice TS 400 would sell for ..Also, Recently, I have seen several of these bikes that were Very Beat & Very Faded Not much left of them & (totally UN restored & without their engines being rebuilt like with this AMAZING Beauty has just had done to her) selling for MORE $$$$ than my Ridiculously Low Buy It Now Price" & Again, This Bike has had Her Engine Extensively Rebuilt & the other bikes again they were ALL UN (NOT) Beautifully Cosmetically Restored, & NOT having their engines Rebuilt & looked to be fairly (VERY) Beat, Raw, UN-Cosmetically restored or Rebuilt etc..& More importantly all were UN-(NOT) Beautifully transformed to look like as Nice & did not Run As GREAT as this Beauty! & don't forget this Wonderful bike was in covered Storage for the better part (the Bulk) of it's life (Approx. 35+ years !!!!!!) & you will be the First New Owner since her Wonderful cosmetic restoration as detailed in this auction. Again..These Beautiful 1974 SUZUKI TS 400s Should Prove to be a very Nice & Very Competitive Vintage Racer ! Compared to many Earlier Vintage Race Bikes the Front & Rear Suspension Travel (with Easily Tune-able Vastly Superior Air/Oil tune-able Front Forks + Longer Travel Dual Rear upgraded Shock Struts) & I have been told these had Better Alluminum Legged Front Forks even slightly MORE Use-able Horsepower than earlier year TS 400's & TS 250s ! ! ! I believe her Vintage Race-able Super Simple & relatively Easy to Work On "Air Cooled" + "Two Stroke" Racing engine & Dual Rear Shock SWING ARM rear suspension With Nice Rear Shocks etc etc *Again, This AMAZING Great Running Bike is a Dream with her AMAZING Balance & She Feels Very Nimble , Dirt Racing SUZUKI's Are Famous for their GREAT TURNING ability & are Light weight , & Handle very Natural & feel Extremely AGILE ..I feel ..Most Enthusiasts agree these SUZUKI TS 400's are GREAt Super Fun Dual Purpose Bikes. This Vintage Racing 1974 SUZUKI TS 400 has her Original SUZUKI Tuned Exhaust with a New . & She Looks to have Her Original Factory SUZUKI TS 400 seat REBUILT From The FRAM UP !!!. We also Cleaned the Entire Fuel system & added a Quality Inline Fuel Filter & her Original Owner added a Brand New "UNI" High Performance Tube Style Air Cleaner Element, & "We Installed The VERY BEST "MODAL" Trans Mission Oil". The Front and rear suspension visually looked good & it's Suspension seals did not appear to be leaking at this time so other than to clean them & refinished the lower Alloy fork legs etc etc (IE) as far as fluid levels etc. they are just as we received them and we have not tested the suspension as we are just now getting the Bike Running again & completing the cosmetic restoration on this Beautiful Bike, Over and Beyond this...In Her Cosmetic Restoration process..We removed most Every Main Component on the bike...nearly all the way down to her "Bare Frame" + Cleaned & refinished most every main component then hand reassembled ~every main item back onto her frame again "Piece by Piece".. She has I believe a Original Vintage 400 SUZUKI Fuel tank that was extremely clean inside (as You should be able to see in the included pictures) we repainted her & added Brand New SUZUKI Graphic were just installed. We also cleaned, painted & refinished the; Frame, Hubs, Spokes, Exhaust Pipe (Tuned Exhaust system) & Her Original SUZUKI Exhaust System. She has Headlight & Taillight etc & we repainted her Nice Front fender & her rear fender etc.& we painted everything to match to a look very close to what I think a street able Tribute to ROGER DeCOSTERs Early 1970's MX race bike looked like a lot like a TM 400's & RM's would have looked NEW like back in the day ! . We installed Brand New High Quality Vintage style rubber handlebar Hand Grips. Her Transmission Gears Shift GREAT Her Clutch Releases & Grips GREAT !!! She is just coming out of Dry Storage Important thing is the Clutch does Grip GREAT & the more she runs the better it should work. She has BRAND NEW Gear Box OIL "MODOL" which is said to be the Very Best Gear oil you can get) She has her Original Fork Tube Rubbers which I think look & Feel almost like Brand New looking Rubber Fork Tube Boots, She has almost "BRAND NEW" looking Vintage style MX Racing handlebars. Unlike many dirt bikes this Beauty also has a side stand. if you would like to..Also, you can lift the bike on a Race Bike Stand & also I believe, she has updated clutch & front brake levers have also been updated as were her AMAZING "BRAND NEW Front & Rear Tires along the way. Like Her Original TS 400 seat cover etc ...The Shifter , Clutch, Brakes, kick Starter Levers All seems to work GREAT & do not appear to have any real noticeable wear & or damage to them : PLEASE NOTE: We are just completing her Brand New cosmetic Restoration (as detailed above etc)...& "YOU" can be the Very First Owner of this Beautiful Bike since this was completed ! If you are looking for a 100% Perfect bike ...Please do everyone involved with thsi auctio na big favor & Please look elsewhere as...I built this to be a Vintage Race Bike...Again, If you are looking for a 100% stock or concourse etc etc 1974 TS 400 or RM Suzuki Vintage Racing bike & are some kind of Concourse bike collector & or, are some kind of "super nit picker" & or a near impossible to please collector type etc etc. Please, do us both a favor & Please do not bid on this bike ....Again, if you truly need a perfect bike ...you may want to please look elsewhere as I am not sure what all that would be about & again, this was NOT Built to be a SHOW or Concourse Bike etc....But, I can tell you ... I would think Most People think this is a STUNNING Bike it will typically Draw a Crowd of people where ever we have Parked or Shown her off ! ...At the Worlds Largest Motorcycle show with other Vintage Street & Race bike in our VJMC (Vintage Japanese M/C Clubs Booth ...that was sitting next to what many MC Enthusiasts would call nearly Priceless Race Bikes (& this auctions bike you can buy for well under ~2K) Our other RM 250 Vintage Race Bike (that is I believe not any nicer than this auctions bike)....Anyway,...during the show... "Hour after Hour" Our TS 400 Vintage Street Dual Purpose Bike Repeatedly Drew More crowds of "on lookers" than nearly any other bike in our Vintage Japanese MC Clubs Booth !!!! ..I personally Think of this bike as a "Super LOW HOUR" , GREAT RUNNING & a Potentially WONDERFUL Vintage Dirt Racing Bike ...& I believe these TS 400 Suzuki Vintage Dual Purpose bikes By Nearly All MC Enthusiasts are Considered Fairly Rare & hard to Find these days !!! ...If I had a Man Cave in my Home ..I personally would put this Magnificent VINTAGE Motorcycle in the Highest Place of HONOR as I think it is a Very Beautiful, Functional & Very Purposely Built and Graceful Motorcycle ! .....Please Keep in Mind ..."Most Enthusiasts Agree the 1983 400 PE or RM Suzuki Vintage Racing bikes are one of the Most Rare + Beautiful & "Vintage Dual Sport" & Most Easily Use-able Bikes (for most riders) "EVER MADE" !Here is some More GREAT NEWS ! ...& YES ! ..I have the "Signed off" State of California CURRENT "TITLE" & Also.....We Even a copy of this Wonderful bikes !!! . ...I will Also be including a California DMV (Notarized) "Bill of Sale" from myself to you the new owner.. which from what I hear in neighboring states, should be what you need to register it if you live outside of California. ... If you just want to Vintage Race this bike... the DMV "Bill of Sale" is all you will need...I will also include the California Department of Motor Vehicles Current DMV Computer Print Out on this Wonderful Bike that shows & Helps Proves that because this Beauty was in storage for the past nearly two decades & because of this... If you live inside California & If you race Vintage Bike Meets on Private Moto-Cross Tracks or (Vintage Bike Shows etc) the Notarized Calif. DMV "Bill of Sale" is all you will need. If for some reason ..Her calif Green sticker I think may have just rolled off..you want to go cow trail ridding on California etc Government National Forest Land etc land & feel you a may want a National Forest etc DMV "Green Sticker" My Vehicle Registration Office said that because this bike had been in covered storage for many years the bike I believe is currently on No Op Status by the Original Owner as he had stored the bike for years.. therefore if you live here in California & feel for some reason you want or feel you need a California Forestry Land Green sticker (to ride in Government Forest etc land) Again it will be Easy because the original owner stated he placed this on Non Op this bike is currently on Non Op DMV Computer status & therefore there should be NO back fees etc..) and Again, this California National Forest sticker is not required for MX & Other Race Tracks and also NOT required for Vintage Shows etc etc etc here in California & a California Nat. Forest Green sticker is not required if you live out of state etc etc etc). IMPORTANT.. * * * Auction Bidding Rules * * * ..Please Read Before Bidding..

In the past I have had a lot of emails with shipping quotes all over the map...Therefore, When you try and Get a Shipping Quote... I would try & get several (many) shipping quotes (& get a estimated pick up date in writing) before you commit or finalize a deal & or make a deposit) with a shipper... as one of the last bikes I sold out of our collection went to North Carolina via USHIP.COM, (which is about 3,000 miles from here)...it was a 1975 YAMAHA 400 Enduro which weights nearly about double of what this auctions Magnificent 1974 400 Suzuki Vintage Racing Beauty Weights & he was only charged about 330 US dollars a few months ago...I think ebay may have a shipping site, but if you want a very competitive rate I would go thru Uship.com & get "Lots of Bids"...Keep in mind, I live Very Close to the Business Hub of Los Angeles & Also the L.A. Harbor areas & Millions of Trucks leave this area every day all you need to do is find a truck that has a little space & that is headed in your direction & I am sure the price would be a lot better for you than with some trucker that is not ! Again, If you need a shipper I would get "Lots of Quotes" (I have always had Great Luck with USHIP.COM & plan on "the rates will vary widely" (IE) as a trucker that is already here in Los Angeles Area & is already planning on going your direction will be a lot different rate than someone that is not already here & is not going in your direction...Also, please remind the trucking Co. you are getting the quote from that ..."This bike is a small nimble + very simple dirt bike & ONLY weights about 270 Pounds" (It is NOT a "HUGE" 700 pound Harley etc) So the Shipping rate should be FAR Cheaper & Should definitely reflect that difference.Also, If it will get you a better Shipping Rate Also, I will deliver this bike to any Los Angeles Area Based Shippers Distribution yard for "FREE" & or if you live out of the Country I will deliver this Bike to any Los Angeles Based International Shipper yard in the Los Angles Area for FREE !!!!!!!!!!!!!! "PLEASE NOTE": RESERVE IS JUST A VERY FEW OF DOLLARS BELOW THE BUY IT NOW PRICE (WHICH I HAVE ALREADY LOWERED Aprox $500.00 ) For a Quick "No Brainer" Sale......So If YOU WANT THIS BIKE "THE BUY IT NOW" Price is about what it will take to get Her...If You wait till the auctions end you may get into a Bidding war ...& It could end up Way Past that amount ....& This is "The Very Last Year" of these 1983 PE 400 & RM Suzuki VINTAGE RACE-able BIKES That is one of the very Last Years of the SUPER DEPENDABLE & FAR MORE DURABLE "Air Cooled TS 400's & I believe the First year with (which probably cost SUZUKI FAR More than a junk Steel Swing Arm & as you can see these Vintage Race-able "DUAL SHOCK" Rear Suspension are FAR SUPERIOR as compared to earlier Suspensions etc ! Happy Bidding .... >>" data-tid="yui_3_16_0_1_1450401376106_9806" class="tab-content" style="visibility: visible;">

But just so everyone can be ready & be looking out for them ...We are in the process of losing more of our Vintage Bike Storage Therefore..over the next few days I will also be listing several of my TWO STROKE Vintage Racer Bike Collection... several YAMAHA YZ 490's + 465s + 400's + & IT 490's + 400's 250's & 175's also 72, 73, 74 250 MX's & also AT-1s DT-1s CT 1's & HT-1s ENDURO's + HONDA "CR 500R" + CR 250 +1973 CR 125M Tribute 1976 & 1979 CR 125M ELSINOREs *& also a 1974 CR 250 Engine & 2 Vintage 1970s ELSINORE CR 125Rs + also ELSINORE MT's 250 & 125's etc etc + KTM ~1974 HUGE 14" WIDE HEAD "Air Cooled" 175 & or 400 Dual Class "Twin Shock" Vintage Racers & a 1982 KTM 250 a ~HUSQVARNA 1978 175 & a 1982 250 etc etc..I have Aprox. 70 bikes Some are restored most are Ready to Restore...& are Priced Accordingly, & all are well under NADA Values & all will bepriced Very Fairly....... This Fairly Rare Early 1970's TS 400cc Beauty (that I think Looks a bit like a early 1970's SUZUKI 400 Like Roger DeCoster's 400 Race Bike with lights ) So.. I guess this is a Tribute Style bike. This bike was only used a couple of years and was not ridden hard at all (as you can see her Near Perfect Engine cases, Alloy Fork Legs, Low slung Original factory Down Pipe, Rubber foot pegs & Rims rear fenders etc etc Show very well !! This wonderful Bike was Originally Sold here in Southern Calif Originally as a Dual Purpose" STREET BIKE the owner lived near the national Forest area & so he re-purosed the bike for more off road use & after a while sold his cabin & since that time this Wonderful Bike has sat in Dry Storage Since aprox.1979 according to the Original Owner till we started her Cosmetic Restoration earlier this year ...that we are just now completing !!!!! Her Original 1974 Seat Which was Rebuilt from the frame Up & Looks & Feels Great !!!!) I think This STUNNING , VERY SPIRITED & GOOD RUNNING Bike is a DREAM ! These TS 400 bikes are FAR MORE FORGIVING & Less Explosive to Ride as compared to a Dirt Racing only TM 400's & RM 400 as the TS 400 have a little more Torque, Smoother Running + Better Idling (Due to her FAR Greater flywheel Action) & Therefore These AMAZING TS 400s are Far More Controllable & FAR Easier to Start compared to the Typical 400cc TM & RM 400 Dirt Racers....* * PLEASE NOTE: this TS 400 (a TS is a lot like suzuki's Street Legal version of the 400 TM or to a lesser degree a little like a RM 400 W/Lights SUZUKI Is I think this may be one of the latter more refined years of the FAR Simpler & FAR More RELIABLE & DURABLE Vintage RACE-ABLE Air Cooled TS 400 Two Stroke Engines & I believe this is also a "Vintage Race-able ..Original SuZuki TS 400 style Piston Port + Original style DUAL SHOCK, REAR SWING ARM SUSPENSION SYSTEM" this makes this TS 400 a little like a TM 400 or to a lesser degree a RM 400 ..Like the earlier TS 400's.... Best of all these are designed as a Street Legal ENDURO "DUAL SPORT" ENDURO Street Use Etc etc & Not just Dirt Racing ...Please keep in mind She has all of her Charging Circuit+Lights are present..But, this bike was re-purposed off road so will need all lights+gadges re wired & reconnected Again to Be 100% street legal again....I have sold several of SUZUKI TS 's, PE 's and YAMAHA IT 's to people that make them into a more Street " Bobber " (Cafe Racers) Bikes .. (3 went to just Miami Florida ! this year alone !!!) Many People also use these for Vintage Dirt & ENDURO RACING Bikes ... Again...She is a Fairly LOW HOUR Bike that was owned by an older gentleman & she sat in Covered Storage for the Majority of her Life..(Again, his was owned by an older Gentleman who owned this for many years & this has always been a "Southern California Bike" as she has been here in CALIFORNIA to the best of my knowledge the Bulk of her Life !!! & Best of all She STARTS SUPER EASY & just as she sits I think She RUNS VERY GOOD Again.. More Importantly she appears that she was used not very hard & also Very Little in Her lifetime (Look at her Engine Cases, Alloy Lower Fork Legs, Rubber Foot pegs, Rims, Her Original Low slung Down Pipe etc, etc,.etc .. . .... & also PLEASE NOTE: Her new owner just did a lot of extensive engine Rebuilding on Her a couple of Months ago...Since then We are just completing her Brand New cosmetic Restoration (as Detailed & Listed above & below etc.. (No More & No less)...& "YOU" can be the LUCKY Very First Owner of this Beautiful Bike since Her Cosmetic Restoration was completed ! * * PLEASE NOTE: the TS 400 (is a lot like an RM W/Lights SUZUKI Is I think "The VERY last year of the FAR Simpler & FAR More Vintage RACE-ABLE Air Cooled Two Stroke Engines & I believe this is the First YEAR of the DUAL SHOCK Vintage Race-able REAR "ALLOY" SWING ARM SUSPENSION SYSTEM" this makes this TS 400 FAR More like a RM 400 than Earlier PE 400s were. ...& YES ! .! I have also, the Current DMV Current computers Print out on this Wonderful Bike and she is "Free & Clear" (IE) She Has "NO" back taxes, "NO" back fees & "NO" Back Taxes etc etc owing on this bike at this time ...Please see further Title information listed below Paperwork details for this Vintage DUAL SPORT ENDURO Motorcycle: This Beauty has been in Storage for ~35 years & therefore has fallen off the DMV System computers (IE) ..Which is Really Good News as this means the bike is free & Clear of any Back fees taxes etc etc ).... & YES ! ....I have also, the DMV Current Computers Print out on this Wonderful Bike that Proves: she is 100% free & Clear of any Back fees again this means she has "NO" back fees & "NO" Back Taxes, & "NO" Back registration fees & "NO" Back Penalties etc etc owing on this bike at this time ! ! ! . ...I will Also be including a California DMV (Notarized) "Bill of Sale" (Transfer of Ownership") from myself to you the new owner.. which from what I hear in neighboring states, should be what you need to register her In California as a 100% Legal Street Bike & if you live outside of California. ... If you just want to Vintage Race this bike... the DMV "Bill of Sale" is all you will need..Again, I will also include the California Department of Motor Vehicles Current DMV Computer Print Out on this Wonderful Bike that shows & Proves that because this Beauty was in storage for the past Three + decades & because of this... there are "NO" current DMV Computer records (AGAIN, WHICH IS REALLY GOOD NEWS) on this Wonderful bike & therefore there should be "NO" back fees "NO" Back registration Fees and "NO" back taxes etc etc. owed on this Wonderful "Dual Sport" ENDURO Bike. If you live inside California & want to take this to Vintage Bike Shows & or If you Race Vintage Bike Meets on Private Moto Cross Tracks or (Vintage Bike Meets etc) the Notarized Calif. DMV "Bill of Sale" is all you will need. If for some reason ..Again, If you would like to register this bike for 100% Street Use Or If you want to go cow trail ridding on California etc Government National Forest Land etc land & feel you a may want a National Forest etc DMV "Green Sticker" My Vehicle Registration Office said that because this bike had been in covered storage for SOooo many years (the last 3+ decades) therefore if you live here in California & feel for some reason you want or feel you need a California Forestry Land Green sticker (to ride in Government Forest etc Land) or get her back in the System again for a Street Legal b bike Again it will be Easy because this bike is currently "Off the DMV Computer records System" & therefore Again..there will be"NO" back fees (as after about 10 or 12 years DMV records fall off the DMV Computers) and Again, this California National Forest sticker or street Tags & Registration etc etc is not required for MX & Other Race tracks and also NOT required for Vintage Shows & Vintage Bike Meets etc etc etc here in California & a California Nat. Forest Green sticker is not required if you live out of state etc etc ....*..Most M/C RACING Enthusiasts Agree the SUZUKI Vintage Dual Purpose TS 400, 400 PE's and 400 RMs are one of the Most Beautiful Most Reliable, Most Responsive, Fastest.. Vintage Bikes of this Era...EVER MADE ! For a Large Displacement 400cc Originally Intended by SUZUKI to be a Street Legal This Wonderful Bike I think She feels very Light Weight & AMAZINGLY NIMBLE + Well Balance & She Feels Very Light, Natural & Extremely AGILE...I & Most Enthusiasts believe, These TS 400s + TM's & RM's etc Vintage Racing SUZUKI's are "WORLD CLASS" Motocross Vintage Dirt Racing Motorcycles !

Blue Book "Value Guide" for a Vintage 1974 SUZUKI TS 400 or RM ..Also, Keep in mind.This is a "California" Motorcycle which for Most any Classic Vehicle etc etc typically Brings considerably More money than bikes from other parts of the country & makes Her More Collectible...Also,This is the Very Last Year that SUZUKI Provided these AMAZING Air Cooled TS 400 SUZUKI's !!! & I believe these TS 400 RM 400's & RM 400s to be ..a Very Spirited & I think should be a "A Potentially, Truly Competitive Vintage Racing bike" & I am offering this for a Fraction of that amount with a "Buy it Now" (Believe it or Not)...of well under 2K US dollars which may sound like a fair amount of money but consider this...." Everyone I have talked to as (Well as N.A.D.A. Value Guide) states that a Really Nice TS 400 would sell for ..Also, Recently, I have seen several of these bikes that were Very Beat & Very Faded Not much left of them & (totally UN restored & without their engines being rebuilt like with this AMAZING Beauty has just had done to her) selling for MORE $$$$ than my Ridiculously Low Buy It Now Price" & Again, This Bike has had Her Engine Extensively Rebuilt & the other bikes again they were ALL UN (NOT) Beautifully Cosmetically Restored, & NOT having their engines Rebuilt & looked to be fairly (VERY) Beat, Raw, UN-Cosmetically restored or Rebuilt etc..& More importantly all were UN-(NOT) Beautifully transformed to look like as Nice & did not Run As GREAT as this Beauty! & don't forget this Wonderful bike was in covered Storage for the better part (the Bulk) of it's life (Approx. 35+ years !!!!!!) & you will be the First New Owner since her Wonderful cosmetic restoration as detailed in this auction. Again..These Beautiful 1974 SUZUKI TS 400s Should Prove to be a very Nice & Very Competitive Vintage Racer ! Compared to many Earlier Vintage Race Bikes the Front & Rear Suspension Travel (with Easily Tune-able Vastly Superior Air/Oil tune-able Front Forks + Longer Travel Dual Rear upgraded Shock Struts) & I have been told these had Better Aluminum Legged Front Forks even slightly MORE Use-able Horsepower than earlier year TS 400's & TS 250s ! ! !

This Vintage Racing 1974 SUZUKI TS 400 has her Original SUZUKI Tuned Exhaust with a New . & She Looks to have Her Original Factory SUZUKI TS 400 seat REBUILT From The FRAM UP !!!. We also Cleaned the Entire Fuel system & added a Quality Inline Fuel Filter & her Original Owner added a Brand New "UNI" High Performance Tube Style Air Cleaner Element, & "We Installed The VERY BEST "MODAL" Trans Mission Oil". The Front and rear suspension visually looked good & it's Suspension seals did not appear to be leaking at this time so other than to clean them & refinished the lower Alloy fork legs etc etc (IE) as far as fluid levels etc. they are just as we received them and we have not tested the suspension as we are just now getting the Bike Running again & completing the cosmetic restoration on this Beautiful Bike, Over and Beyond this...In Her Cosmetic Restoration process..We removed most Every Main Component on the bike...nearly all the way down to her "Bare Frame" + Cleaned & refinished most every main component then hand reassembled ~every main item back onto her frame again "Piece by Piece"..

We also cleaned, painted & refinished the; Frame, Hubs, Spokes, Exhaust Pipe (Tuned Exhaust system) & Her Original SUZUKI Exhaust System. She has Headlight & Taillight etc & we repainted her Nice Front fender & her rear fender etc.& we painted everything to match to a look very close to what I think a street able Tribute to ROGER DeCOSTERs Early 1970's MX race bike looked like a lot like a TM 400's & RM's would have looked NEW like back in the day ! . We installed Brand New High Quality Vintage style rubber handlebar Hand Grips. Her Transmission Gears Shift GREAT Her Clutch Releases & Grips GREAT !!!

In the past I have had a lot of emails with shipping quotes all over the map...Therefore, When you try and Get a Shipping Quote... I would try & get several (many) shipping quotes (& get a estimated pick up date in writing) before you commit or finalize a deal & or make a deposit) with a shipper... as one of the last bikes I sold out of our collection went to North Carolina via USHIP.COM, (which is about 3,000 miles from here)...it was a 1975 YAMAHA 400 Enduro which weights nearly about double of what this auctions Magnificent 1974 400 Suzuki Vintage Racing Beauty Weights & he was only charged about 330 US dollars a few months ago...I think ebay may have a shipping site, but if you want a very competitive rate I would go thru Uship.com & get "Lots of Bids"...Keep in mind, I live Very Close to the Business Hub of Los Angeles & Also the L.A. Harbor areas & Millions of Trucks leave this area every day all you need to do is find a truck that has a little space & that is headed in your direction & I am sure the price would be a lot better for you than with some trucker that is not ! Again, If you need a shipper I would get "Lots of Quotes" (I have always had Great Luck with USHIP.COM & plan on "the rates will vary widely" (IE) as a trucker that is already here in Los Angeles Area & is already planning on going your direction will be a lot different rate than someone that is not already here & is not going in your direction...Also, please remind the trucking Co. you are getting the quote from that ..."This bike is a small nimble + very simple dirt bike & ONLY weights about 270 Pounds" (It is NOT a "HUGE" 700 pound Harley etc) So the Shipping rate should be FAR Cheaper & Should definitely reflect that difference.Also, If it will get you a better Shipping Rate Also, I will deliver this bike to any Los Angeles Area Based Shippers Distribution yard for "FREE" & or if you live out of the Country I will deliver this Bike to any Los Angeles Based International Shipper yard in the Los Angles Area for FREE !!!!!!!!!!!!!! "PLEASE NOTE": RESERVE IS JUST A VERY FEW OF DOLLARS BELOW THE BUY IT NOW PRICE (WHICH I HAVE ALREADY LOWERED Aprox $500.00 ) For a Quick "No Brainer" Sale......So If YOU WANT THIS BIKE "THE BUY IT NOW" Price is about what it will take to get Her...If You wait till the auctions end you may get into a Bidding war ...& It could end up Way Past that amount ....& This is " One of the Last Years" of these Fairly Rare 1970's TS 400 & RM Suzuki VINTAGE RACE-able BIKES That is one of the very Last Years of the SUPER DEPENDABLE & FAR MORE DURABLE "Air Cooled TS 400's & I believe the First year with (which probably cost SUZUKI FAR More than a junk Steel Swing Arm & as you can see these Vintage Race-able "DUAL SHOCK" Rear Suspension are FAR SUPERIOR as compared to earlier Suspensions etc ! Happy Bidding .... >>" data-tid="yui_3_16_0_1_1450401376106_9806" class="tab-content" style="visibility: visible;">

Hi, Everyone...I Have had a lot of emails this morning asking me about Shipping Quotes...To get a Good & or Very Fair Deal on Shipping ..I would get as many Quotes as possible...Otherwise, you will pay Way Too Much...I would try Uship.com where shippers Competitively bid to get your Shipping business. To do this properly, Get as Many Competitive Rates as you can (so you will know when a fair rate presents it'self).......& also to protect yourself. You need to get the quotes yourself ...& Therefore...(IE) you will need to get your own quotes for shipping, I believe ebay my have a shipping service for vehicles... also, UShip.com is very competitive if you take your time & get plenty of shipping Bids for this ... * * About a year ago Someone bought my 1975 400 Yamaha Enduro (which Weights I think about 100 pounds more than this Wonderful Bike) & the YAMAHA 400 Enduro cost about $ 325 to go from here (Los Angeles, Calif.) to North Carolina. & a 400 YAMAHA IT ENDURO to Florida went for under $ 300...PLEASE NOTE: My Home is a GREAT Place to get a Shipping Quote From !!! (IE) I live just ~5 Miles North of the Los Angeles (Long Beach) Harbor (LA IS THE LARGEST SHIPPING PORT IN THE WORLD") & ~8 Miles South of the Los Angeles "Commercial District".. so "EVERY DAY A Zillions ("MANY") Trucks".. Leave this area to go to the Entire rest of the Country ...(IE) all you need to do is find a truck that has a little extra space & Trust me their Rates will be FAR Better than someone that the is no where near this area & trip is not on their way & or Not Convenient for them or ??? . Therefore, the more Quotes you get the Better the Shipping Rate will be to your home (So "YES" get lots of Quotes). Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Please email us. be sure to tell Each Shipper that this is a fairly "LIGHT" weight bike (I believe, a bit over 200 pounds) dual purpose bike and NOT a 700+ pound Harley etc. (TANK) or something (IE) Trust Me.."Mentioning that Fact will Save you a lot of Money") ...I live in Long Beach , Lakewood Village / Lakewood Country Club Area , California Zip = 90808

These CT-1's are famous for: Always being a EASY to RIDE , SUPER FUN, Go Most Anywhere Bike ...for families ALL Around the World !!! When these bikes were made ,There was No Other ENDURO Bike on EARTH that were as LOVED and as POPULAR as the YAMAHA CT-1 175cc ENDURO > > > > * * * Please keep in Mind "A Nice Example as per NADA.com Value Guides is worth about $5,600.00 So as you can see this Beauty is a BARGAIN for the Ridiculously Fair price that I have her listed for ...& I feel ... Especially in Her AMAZING Condition . these Original Series CT-1's are becoming harder & Harder to find & I believe the NADA.com Value Guide on these have just this past year ALONE... are "UP aprox TEN+ PERCENT" ! ! ! ! ! ....Also, Please keep in mind that the 1972 & newer 72-75 YAMAHA ENDURO's are typically Worth "FAR LESS" (IE) 1972-76 CT-1 "Even in Excellent condition can NADA.com Value Guide for many times worth about HALF as Much (`later 175 YAMAHA's High book of ~ 2300 "VS" $5,600.00 for a first Edition 1969-1971 YAMAHA CT-1 ENDURO like this VINTAGE BEAUTY " !!!! ...& these First Edition Original Style "Piston Port" style Engine CT-1 Are FAR More Vintage Race-able as well ! >> * * PLEASE NOTE: I think this is a very Nice looking Bike in very Nice Overall Condition...However, If you are looking for a Perfect Bike or a Vintage Show or Concourse show bike etc etc please look elsewhere as I feel this is just a Nice Looking & Great Running Bike that we are selling at a Fraction (about half) of the NADA.com Book value is for a Nice Example of one of these Original Series Wonderful YAMAHA CT-1 175cc ENDURO's ...So, if you are looking for a Great Looking "SUPER FUN" Go most Anywhere kind of bike ..These CT-1's Are Famous For Doing that...

However, If you have Achievable Expectations this may be a Great opportunity to get a Very Nice & SUPER FUN Great Running Bike for Peanuts that ...& it's value will most likely Continue to Keep going Up & Up the Next few years ( "I think these went up about 10+ PERCENT just this past year Alone" ! ! ! ! ! ) as these are Rapidly becoming Harder and Harder to find in reasonably Nice condition like this Wonderful Bike.. Keep in Mind the cost of ownership and Cost of Maintenance for a Vintage Two Stroke is a Very Small Fraction of what a four stroke would cost to own...These bikes are SUPER SIMPLE and nearly all of it's Normal maintenance can be done without any of the four strokes typical Specialized tools and the level Skill required is also FAR less...I have a HUGE Collection of Vintage Bikes and ALL are Air Cooled, Two Strokes...For Just that same Reason...Also, Parts are Very Available for these YAMAHA ENDUROs on ebay and Many other sites & Even the Dealers still sell Many of the the parts for these MAGNIFICENT CT-1 ENDURO's ! ! ! ! This bike has ALWAYS BEEN A SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA Bike !!! Which to collectors Makes Her FAR MORE Desirable & Collectable (as we up till this year typically get almost no rain here at all, (typically Only about 2 to 3 inches a year) ...& in our particular area Most of the time not even that much) & the Temperatures are most of the time a Museum like 65 - 75 the Majority of the year. ......Again,These CT-1 ENDURO's are famous for: Always being a High Quality, Super Simple To Maintain, Durable , RELIABLE + EASY TO RIDE , FUN, Go Most Any Where Bike ...for families Around the World !!! * * Lucky You.. can be the First New Owner Since this Bike has Just had a Beautiful Cosmetic Restoration ... This Wonderful Bike Starts Super Easy & Runs GREAT Her Clutch , Control cables & Brakes All work Great ! I had the Seat Professionally "Rebuilt from the Frame Up" and we dissembled this wonderful Bike "Piece by Piece" & also Refinished most All of Her Main Components and reassembled her "by hand" ..."Piece by Piece". She has BOTH Front and Rear almost "BRAND NEW" Dual Purpose Universal Style Tires ! Again, This Magnificent Beauty Starts Great + Runs Amazing & Shifts Excellent etc etc + all of her Control cables Brakes Etc Etc all seem to work Great as Well.Her Prior owner used her very rarely and after several years re-purposed her for more off-road use but, as you can see I re-installed all of her head lights etc again and I have a "BRAND NEW" (Still in her box) Electrical Battery for her as well ! It looks like her lights are all present & look to be in good Shape. But, We have Just rebuilt much of her Engine and have not spent time with the lights as She has to have the engine started to check out the lights with the Battery out (Brand New in a Box) therefore I have not spent any time to figure out if the lights are working or not etc. * * Please Note * * Very Recently (December 2015) this auctions bikes' cousins (IE) that were also built by us side by side to this auctions bike) the other Two of our bikes > a Vintage Racing 1978 RM 250 SUZUKI (Yellow) & also our 73 Tribute Vintage Racing ELSINORE CR 250 (Green / Aluminum) we Displayed at the "WORLDS LARGEST" MOTORCYCLE SHOW" (the Los Angeles Cycle World / Progressive Motorcycle Show, (Los Angeles, California Area)..in Our "Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Clubs" Booth earlier (December 6, 7 & 8th 2013).
