78 suzuki TS185 frame
« on: January 02, 2020, 04:56:13 PM »
1978 TS185 frame or frame & motor. Frame # TS1852-24007 up to TS1852-39022

will also consider 77 frame if it uses  8mm foot peg bar bolts

* These frames have 2 down tubes at the front. The exhaust comes out the middle

* The back  end of the frame is open

I was hoping to have some Ohlins shocks to swap but have not found any at right price yet so all i have is cash at the moment.

ER reed valve engines twin down tube frames Stewey, Im strickly PP engines and they finished 76. Leith has been after one of these frames for a while and most of these style you trip over will be 81.

I have had a few leads over ther yrs but they always end in dead end. Had a few 'yeah i got one' but when they check or send me photos its either a 76 or older or one from the 80's. I will find one eventually i hope.
