    Default 1973 Suzuki TM400

    This is a 1973 TM400 Cyclone that has all the period correct killer stuff done to it. This bike is almost identical to the bike Roger De Coster was sawing guys off on at the World Championship Grand Prix circa 1971-1979.. It has Preston Petty front and back fenders, Mikuni carb, Works Performance rear shocks (the Rolls Royce of shocks back in the day) to allow for more rear travel Works installed a different swing arm and moved the top shock mount forward. Not sure what all has been done to the internals of the motor (if any). I do know that it runs and runs well!! The original down pipe exhaust on it sounds pretty radical too.


    All the plastics are good
    Original bars, original levers, original rims all in good condition
    The original tank that is on the bike has NO DENTS and does not leak.
    The original seat has NO tears and the foam is STILL GOOD


    A true period correct survivor


    The bike also comes with a front handlebar hoop stand, a rear axle stand, a desert tank, and a box full of extra parts for the bike!


    THIS THING IS A FULL ON BARN FIND!!!

    Rode one of those ONCE!!!!!! The only bike that commanded more respect than my 74 YZ250 A, those bikes were brutal, I think they would calm them down by installing a 2-3 lb flywheel on the CDI, it should sell within a couple of days for that price, good luck. Cool memories!!!!!!
    Anyone can pedal a bicycle, can you pedal a flat?????

    I had one back in the day that I loved. I put the motor in a custom frame that I helped Sanderson Headers develop and put two 4 petal reed valves and two 34 mm carbs on it. People used to look at it and scratch there head when they saw the two carbs on a single cylinder motor. Good memories !
