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.

    I Have a 1967 250 x-6 hustler scrambler pipes that I’ve had since 1969. It was my first street bike. it’s still in very good shape although I haven’t started it in many years its not locked up and even the tires from way back in the early 70’s when I went in the service are not weather cracked and aired up.

  19. Larry Bittner says:

    Oh Yea, It was or is a bad fast ride. I remember when it kicked into the power band I had to lay on the tank to keep the front end down. It was fast.

  20. HI, DO YOU HAVE A SPARE CABURETOR AND PETROL TAP BEST REGARDS NORMAN
