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.

Suzuki RE-5 – Rotary Engine
I’ve always been obsessed with wankel rotary engines. Such a cool alternative to a piston engine. My best buddy kev’s dad had a 3rd gen 1994 rx7 twin turbo. Holy shit I still droll over that car. In high school, Kev used to steal it and take it out when his dad was out of […]
wow, got a lot of potential. jealous.
The X-6 was fast in their day. I have one in a barn somewhere I need to dust off and ride. If you need parts let me know, may have what you need.
Very Nice !
Adam big Ed from Midohio has restored the same bike!
here’s a pic of him at a moto giro..I’m sure if you have any questions he can help you..
@BG, thanks for the info. Do you have Big Ed’s contact info? email it to me at email@example.com
I dig those high pipes on his bike.
Do you still have the rx7?
Interested in selling it someday?
That tank is impressive.
That’s slick…great find!
Yes, Ed I still have the rx. Had some issues with rotten rubber connectors in the turbo plumbing but that has been fixed and running well. I don’t drive it that much and should sell. Will keep you in mind if you are interested.
IF you decide to ditch that old clock let me know! Ive been trying to snag one for a loooong time.
I have trans problems and I am looking for parts if anyone has leads. the bottom case has an old repair under the shift spool. bike is near perfect must fix!

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.
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.
HI, DO YOU HAVE A SPARE CABURETOR AND PETROL TAP BEST REGARDS NORMAN
I had one in high school,fun bike to ride and in the day would surprise many bigger bikes with it’s performance.wish I had one today!
