The First Bike I wasn't allowed to get

Post  spanna on Thu 23 Apr 2015, 8:28 pm

I came across this bike on flea bay, he was asking too much but it sparked my interest because it was the first bike I wanted to buy. Unfortunately my old man did not agree & said "if you buy a bike your not living here".
It was 1978 and this girl was just on the market, who remembers the these jap copies of the british style bike.
Not a suzuki but nonetheless..
Anyway here she is, just got a roadworthy & will be going on red plates.

Yep.. SR500E, the original cast wheels not spokes. Matching frame & engine numbers.
I bought it off a guy in Holden Hill SA, it all got too hard for him.
Had fitted a Minuki HS40 carb to is & couldn't get it to run.
These carbs are used on original Hardly Drivables, I put a VM36 & rejetted she runs a treat.
