Introduced in 1965, the Suzuki K15 (also known as the Hillbilly) was a 2-stroker for the trail with features like a skid plate, luggage rack, and swappable sprockets. Basic specs were a dry weight of 155 pounds, and 7.3 horsepower from the 80cc single. Top speed with the trail sprocket was 38 miles per hour, and 60 mph with the street sprocket.

This example has less than 200 miles and has been “sitting in a garage for its whole life.” The seller states that it starts and runs but could use a carb cleaning. It’s in pretty impressive shape with just minor surface rust and flaking chrome. The sale includes the original title, tool kit, and the rare factory option [UPDATE: this was not a factory option, thanks cyclemikey!] rear seat. Give it a once over and you’ll have an excellent low-mileage classic play bike!

Find this Hillbilly for sale in Brooklyn, New York for $2,000 (the listing says $2,500 or best offer but the price up top says $2,000) here on Craigslist.
