Your Collection: 1980 Suzuki RS250TSunday, May 6, 2012 | 6:00 AM
This weeks collection comes to us from Shawn Ronk.
I have a 1980 Suzuki RS250T. I found it for $350. It was the last dirtbike my dad rode on with my brother and I. I was looking for something to restore, there are so many options, but this one has sentimental reason. I spent time on ebay, looking and emailing dealers, and using my local dealer to find parts. I tried to leave as much stock as possible including just touching up the paint instead of a complete repaint. Of course I replaced the top end with .020 Wiseco. It was the original top end before I started! Spent some time with the die grinder on the ports etc, and used Boyesen reeds. I can go on and on, but I went thru everything and doing the typical upgrades. Bike runs great and the suspension is fine for just trail riding. I want to thank Skagit Powersports for helping with parts and displaying my ride!
