Suzuki Other description

This is a 1973 TS 400 Apache I acquired on a multi bike purchase which was a 74 TS250 & A 73 TS400 and this was part of the deal. Someone back in the day had converted to a trail bike by hacking the wire harness, removal of all lights and switches and has installed TM front suspension and rear wheel.. I checked spark and compression and both were great so I installed a refurbished carb from Paul Miller motorcycle, new air filter, new intake boot and throttle cable, check clutches and they were free, installed new transmission fluid, sprockets and chain, new knobbies with tubes, check tank-very clean and installed\a new fuel tap and line, regreased the steering bearings, put on some PE bars with new levers and the beast fired right up, idles and runs great for a 43 year old motorcycle The following is a lost of all new parts;
Throttle cable, air filter, intake manifold, fuel tap and fuel line, levers and perches, sprockets and chain, new knobbies and tubes, front fender, rear shocks and misc hardware. Refurbished parts include; handlebars, engine covers, exhaust  and carb.  
The Good; This bike starts good, idles easily, runs great, shifts through all gears and stops as a TS400 should
Whats needed; fork seals and decompression cable and switch and a kill switch
The bad; previous owner has chopped original wire harnes and removed all electrics and lights
The ugly; Either ride as is and enjoy-put back on street($1000.) or TM clone ($750)

We’ve already looked at India-produced Royal Enfield’s new Thunderbird 500 and Hero Moto’s hybrid scooter concept which debuted at the Auto Expo, and today we’ll look at what the major international OEMs presented.
