Suzuki Other description

 Up for grabs...Here's a very rare 1972 Suzuki ts 185 J Sierra Suitcase Cycle. These bikes were "built" in Santa Monica, CA for light aircraft pilots to stow away on their planes.  Suitcase Cycle would buy in motorcycles (lightweight bikes from Honda, Suzuki, and Kawasaki) and do the conversions in their warehouse to make them easy to breakdown.  Quick-disconnects were added to the wiring harnesses, frames were modified to be quickly taken apart.  A very cool concept and one that adds another range of freedom for motorcyclists and airplane enthusiasts. This bike is in nice restorable condition. The tach is a replacement, the front tire is brand new as are the clutch cable, battery and throttle cable. The tank has no dents, the motor turns over and has strong compression.  Please feel free to ask any questions. The bike is being sold "as is" with a bill of sale (no pink).
Thanks for looking!
