Came across this and had to rescue it, like a cock I forgot to take before pickies but it was not in the best nick and was an abandoned project with the engine in one of the many boxes it came in!
Think I did it justice but I remember them being much bigger when I was a young un!

Lovely job on an ugly little bastard of a bike ;)

Never been a Suzuki fan as they employed the blind as stylists mostly but it is nice to see them rescued from certain death.

The 100 was my favourite 'cos it's name was BLOOP :o

I had one when I was 15 on the fields and it was bulletproof, it's got a certain charm about it but was never sold on its looks I have to agree, they were never desirable so not saved hence they are becoming quite rare. Last time it was taxed was in 1986 and it coughed up third kick after a full rebuild which made me smile.

Looks like my old two stroke rxs100! They were indestructible back then. Miss the smell of my clothes after a long ride (I'm referring to the two stroke, not the sweat)

Talking about insurance, my c2 is £84. Cheeky bar stewards want £76 to insure the 120!

Cheers pal, I'm going for a multi bike policy as I've also got a Suzuki M800 cruiser to mot and sell which I bought to slow me down after getting back up to 9 points AGAIN! Bloody worked as I never rode it! Not for me that type of bike I have to say, Bennetts quoted £240 for all 3 bikes so not bad at all but I'll deffo be shopping around.
