1978 SUZUKI AP50
This is one of our most recent restorations. Although it had been “done up” at some point in the past, it was starting to look tatty again. Most of the chrome was in very good condition and as this is an expensive process, allowed us to work to a limited budget, as this was going to be used on a regular basis and this particular model is still not yet that sought after.
We have concentrated on making sure that the main structure of the bike is “spot on” and that any items that this time round were re-used, are easily replaced at a later date if the customer required.
Most of the perished rubber and worn out parts are still available off the shelf from Suzuki and specialist new old stock parts dealers. It was a delight to road test this “sixteener special” although a little under powered to what we are used to, and you can see why they were regarded as one of the best.
