Another TS-50



I haven't seen any Suzuki TS-50s on eBay in a while, but there seem to be more than a few on Craigslist here and there. This project bike caught me eye because the seller said that he "...bought it last summer and was planning to race it in the 50cc class at Bonneville Salt Flats, but never finished it..."

He's installed a larger tank, clip-on bars, and it looks like a cafe type seat was planned. Exhaust is stock. Wonder if there's any engine work?

These bikes pull surprisingly hard. I imagine if you geared one up and put a light rider on it you might get 65-70 or more. With engine mods, who knows?
