Interesting motorcycles, not XS650

I wasn’t aware of this bikes existence, The Suzuki SP370, Suzuki’s first four stroke single, it was a two year only model. It got pretty good reviews back when it was made, even though it didn’t have a lot of power, it was a pretty good dual sport bike. It was lighter and easier to handle as a dirt bike than Yamaha’s XT500, but it was roughly the same price.

This just came up for sale near Phoenix, it’s been in the same family since new and it sure looks well cared for, probably as nice an example as you’d ever find.

The 1978 Suzuki SP370 was my first street legal bike. Purchased in 1980 or 1981 from Mike's Suzuki Ranch in Janesville, WI. I feel like I was out there ogling it for a couple months until I decided to pull the trigger. The owners (husband and wife) usually waited on me and were surprisingly patient. Really enjoyed that bike. I paid $995 for mine. This is a beautiful example.
