Suzuki X5 200cc

The baby brother to the 250cc X7, this one owner bike was brought to us by the original owner, but it had been stored in a damp barn for years. So, although untouched, it was suffering with corrosion. Luckily the classic Suzuki parts scheme helped us out with a lot of new chrome work, which turned out to be cheaper than re-chroming in most cases.

The engine was fully rebuilt with a reconditioned crank, seals and bearings, and the top end freshened up with new piston rings and little ends. With a coat of paint on the outer casings and the crank cases aqua blasted, the engine was ready.

Chassis wise, the usual New Era treatment – stove enamelling, powder coating, zinc plating, paintwork & seat recovering. Fully restored, it was ready to go back to the owner, to relive his younger days on his beloved X5.
