So I was bored this summer and wanted to work on something, and realized I had a couple old enduros that I kept saying I was going to do something with. I started with a 1974 Suzuki TS 100



Started stripping it down, shortened the rear frame...



....washed sanded and painted the frame and engine with high heat flat black...



....went shopping at Princess auto!



.....my daughter sanded and painted the tank, ammo boxes, and fenders with textured flat Desert sand.



...and re-installed them



.....I made a new seat bracket and found a bicycle seat that matched what I was looking for so i bought it and installed it. I loosely mounted everything.....





.....and did some stenciling....



.....and finally made and mounted the ammo can racks



.....thats it for that build, I took it in to my bike mechanic and he said it needed a 40 over piston to run properly as it had been hard to start. I will probably sell it as is for $500 or trade it off on something else I can work on, as I hate mechanical stuff! Wink ........my next build is going to be a Bobber, I will post picks and progress soon. Enjoy!! Very Happy

Thanks! Very Happy I sawed the exhaust off and am going to re-route it lower on the bike. I just need to get ahold of a pipe bender! If you are serious, you can have it as is for $500 cash. If not i am going to see if Brad still has that engine to swap in! Wink

I am serious, but I need my garage first.

If you still have it in the Spring, let's talk!

I never saw this. That bike looks awesome!

I saw your stuff out on Northumberland, I'm 2 blocks east. I had to keep driving to ensure I didn't go on a shopping spree!!

What do you think you'd want for the bike after you put that new motor in? Looks like a wicked toy.

You should have stopped by!! If it was running I would sell it for $800 the same as what I am selling the Bobber for. It turns out I need a magneto and carb for the new motor though. They don't interchange between the two. Crying or Very sad So I guess I am back to square 1 looking for another motor as I can't find any parts for a Suzuki TC 125 anywhere!

If all the existing engine needs is a new piston, why don't you just get the cylinder bored and replace it? Its not tough to do and the piston should be cheap.

I had a look at the piston that is in the original motor, and it looks brand new?? There is a sleeve in the cylinder wall, and looks like new rings??? Confused

Have you done a compression test? Fixing the motor you have may be quite a bit cheaper and easier than tring to cram some other engine in there. These little bike engines are quite simple to work on.

Thanks Booker, but I gave up on the motor and went a different route. I have a little Yamaha 80cc that runs excellent, and decided instead of swapping engines, I would swap everything else! Rolling Eyes Call me nuts but this way I am not touching any wiring or carb setup...just body parts.

I started by taking of the rear swing arm and back tire and shock assembly from both bikes. (3 nuts and a cotter pin) and swapped the rear ends. The only adjustments I had to make were to grind a smidge off of the 80cc swing arm bolt hole sleeve to fit perfect. I also had to shorten the one chain by 4 links to fit properly.







That went quick and easy enough, so then I started on the front. The shocks, tree and everything else was a lot smaller on the 80cc frame so I decided to remove the whole front assembly and swap them. I've been sick so didn't finish lastnight. Hopefully be done in the next couple days.
