One of Japan’s first motorcycle manufacturers, Meguro’s first bike was a 500cc machine created in 1937. They specialized in four-stroke machines, and the “S” lineup had the S1 – 500cc, S2 – 350cc, and the S3 (also called the Junior) used a 250cc.
The S3 was offered between 1956 and 1959 – with 31,370 examples it is Meguro’s best selling model. Basic specifications were 10 horsepower, 4-speed rotary transmission with a right-side shift, 400 pounds dry weight, and a top speed of about 60 miles per hour. Meguro would end up being acquired by Kawasaki in 1964.
This Megura (VIN: S357-7832) was acquired by the seller in running condition a decade ago after being “reportedly restored in Japan in the lat ’90’s and ridden” and it’s been on display at the seller’s dealership since. The odometer shows approximately 44,000 miles – this is being offered by the same seller as this week’s Tohatsu, and he’s got a series of interesting Japanese imports such as a 1955 Honda Dream 4E, 1964 Pointer Super Lassie, and a 1958 Honda JC58.
