The Suzuki Stinger (also known as the T125) is one of the coolest looking small displacement bikes of the 60s, mostly due to the distinctive fuel tank. The little 125 produced 15.1 horsepower, giving the Stinger a top speed of just about 75 miles per hour. This bike also gave you a 5-speed transmission, and it was the only bike in its class to come with a speedometer and tachometer. Telling of the time, advertisements for the Stinger even highlighted the fact that the “front brake also activates the rear brake light!”

The owner of this example (VIN: T125112717) doesn’t care about brake lights, as he turned it into a AHRMA racer – though he hasn’t cut the frame or wiring harness and he has all the parts to make it street legal. Note that it’s not a numbers matching bike, and the title is for a ’70. While the seller has turned it into a AHRMA stock class racer, you should be aware that the bike only has break in hours on it and it’s never actually seen the track. The opening bid isn’t cheap but it’s a no reserve auction. Find this Stinger for sale in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with an unmet opening bid of $2,200
