Post-Listing Update: This Suzuki Colleda ST-II did not meet reserve at $5,100.
From the same seller as the Toyomotor TB from a couple of days ago comes this Suzuki Colleda (which roughly translates to “this is the one”, or something similarly special). The first motorcycle from Suzuki, the Colleda was introduced to the world in 1954. Several changes came in the next few years, and by 1956, Suzuki had 4 models, 3 of which were Colleda variants. Today we’ve got the ST-II, a simple mode of transportation.
The ST-II was the most successful (over 100,000 units over 6 years) of the models, and it featured a 123cc air-cooled single-cylinder engine. It was a two-stroke unit good for 7 horsepower. Other basics included a three speed transmission, telescopic front forks, and a plunger rear suspension. If you want more information, a great source is SuzukiCycles, my first reference point on anything Suzuki has ever sold.
This specific Suzuki Colleda (VIN: 56L1663) has never been restored and works great. It has 24,849 miles on the odometer, and the owner says he uses this bike every day to ride down to his mailbox. Not bad.
