Suzuki GSX250 or similar

  1. Looking for a commuter for my wife. We don't want to spend buckets of cash and I am happy to do some resto work on a sensibly priced bike.

    Seems that early '80s Suzuki GSX250 is worthwhile. Would buy a Honda 250 twin (not VT250F!) but they are always much higher priced than the Suzi.

    Can anyone share some knowledge or ideas re the GSX or an alternative? I am sure I can buy something on the road for $1000 registered. Whaddyareckon??

  2. Old Suzukis always seem to sell for less than equivalent Hondas - not really sure why though there's certainly no major problems with the early GSXs. Another option for a good, cheap 250 would be a Yammy SRX250, only a single but given the age/price range your looking at performance is going to have more to do with condition than number of cylinders.
