Post Sale Update: This Sierra sold for $2,650 after 26 bids on eBay.


The TS range of bikes were Suzuki’s first trail bikes, and the family of two-strokes was available with motors ranging from 50 to 400cc. Some riders considered the TS185 to be the best – it was actually a few pounds lighter than the TS125 but it made nearly as much horsepower as the TS250.

The ’73 model (also known as the K or the Sierra) featured a yellow/green paint livery. Everything else was nearly the same as previous years, except for a different exhaust heat shield and a painted front fender. The dry weight was 218 pounds and the 183cc motor produced 17.5 horsepower at 7,000 rpm. For more specifications on the TS185, check out this model history on Suzuki Cycles.

This example has 2,568 miles and it’s said to be all original down to the tires. Impressively, the seller says his bike doesn’t have a scratch on it and everything is said to work as it should.
