1966 Suzuki T20 “Super Six” | X6 Hustler
Last week Rick and I got a call in the shop from a lady looking to get rid of an old bike that had been sitting in her in her garage for the past 40 years. She wanted to mail us some photos but instead we decided take a ride out to her place in Mt Airy to check it out with the hopes of finding something awesome. We were a little disappointed to find a Suzuki… but this little 250cc 2-stroke is pretty rad and apparently was pretty unique back in its day.
Some interesting facts about them:
– Only produced between 1965 and 1967
– 29 hp @ 7500rpm
– 6-speed transmission
– First tubular steel frame from Suzuki – all previous were pressed steel
– Left side kick starter
– 0-60mph in 6 sec
– 15.1 1/4 mile
It’s a little rough but should clean up nicely and make for a fun bike.
