1973 Suzuki TS185

In Dual-Sport, Japan, Less than 5k by AbhiLeave a Comment

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 an amusing listing – the seller is all about trying to get you to think back to the days when you used to ‘let the good times roll’, instead of ‘just letting your wheelchair roll.’ The bike is said to be all original but not perfect. It has a clean title and runs ‘great.’ It’s plated and seems to be missing mirrors. Find this TS185 for sale in Burien, Washington for $1,800 here on Craigslist.
