1978 TS185 frame
« on: September 25, 2017, 06:26:07 PM »
I am looking for a TS185 frame with Australian compliance plate. 1978C model which will have a 5 digit frame number starting from TS1852-24007 and up to TS1852-39022

79 model has 6 digits and starts at 39023
79ERN model starts at 100001

Prefer good condition, no bad weld repairs, stripped shock mount threads, bits chopped off or excessive deep rust from sitting uncovered out in the rain for years.
I don’t need any of the other parts right now but will need 78 engine at some point
Am hoping to find one by end of the year. Prepared to buy a whole bike possibly if you will just ship the frame.

Thanks

I just updated the initial post as the frame number range was not 100% right. As it turns out there were 2 different 79 model versions imported to Australia. I got correct info from Suzuki Aus now. Might settle for a 77 or 79 when i run out of patience.
