    Suzuki Stinger T125 II 1970

    Hello, I'm restoring a Stinger in Christchurch and have most of the parts I need except for a few.
    1) Can anyone help with supplying me with a set of carburetors?
    2) I also need the rubber grommet that sits over the headlight bulb holder.
    It would have to come with the bulb holder and wires as it would tear if you tried to remove just the grommet.
    3) A set of pipes and stinger tips also would be a real bonus.
    4) Petrol cap. Suzuki branded in the centre and diameter 60 mm
    5) Petrol tap
    Please message me if you have parts and are willing to sell stuff you no longer need. Anything considered. Cheers, TC

    The Vintage Car Club parts shed might be worth a look, I saw a pair of GT125 pipes in there a while back, there might be some other bits if you go digging. They're not particularly sorted so you'd need a good idea of what you're looking for.

    He's was still around not long ago, I got a couple of bits from him, try emailing sales@japmcdismantlers.co.nz

    He's still around - but only doing this a day or so a week. he's got a real job, LOL.
    The guys who bought KG's still have quite a bit of his old stock too. Not on site now though, tucked away.

    I've actually got a set of carbs - but they're the small ones from the 90 Wolf. Most of the bits interchange if you haven't got a complete set.
    Edit - just looked at the pics. What's missing/wrong with the carbs on it ?

    [QUOTE=just looked at the pics. What's missing/wrong with the carbs on it ?[/QUOTE] I don't know if they have been damaged beyond working as one of them has been knocked around internally. Besides, it's always good to have spare parts for these 50 year old bikes

    If it has Mikuni then see if you can get new off Mikunioz

    My Bro' had one and they made the most beautiful sound that made them seem as if they were really revving high but redline was at 9,000rpm if I remember rightly so they weren't really a screamer.

    A year ago I did something silly. I decided I wanted to start a bike resto project. The subject the mighty T125 Stinger. Why? Circa 1970 these bikes are ‘before my time’ of learning to ride & closer to my birthday. But at my now maturing age I find these appealing more & more. The Stinger was a jewel of a bike for the time & I love the quirky kitsch styling. GP replica stated brochures, despite no self respecting GP bike having up-pipes. . .

    Having something cool to potter around on would be nice, also garners to the hunter gatherer instinct.

    So what to start with? I’d passed on a T125 a friend was selling ~ 8 yrs ago. Time to look at TM. Phew! They’ve shot up in price, seems everyone wants a bit of this nostalgia stuff. So after passing on the million dollar items & finally got desperate & bought something that I knew was a mistake. An incomplete bike that had been half converted into a bucket, but had heaps of spares (probably none of which I would want).

    So the search was on & I’ve been collecting parts here & there & the odd evilbay purchase, pistons etc. Then of course I bought another one. From hereon known as Rusty. With my 500 project & dirtbike maintenance I’ve not even touched them, it’s a 2 year project (ok maybe 3) so gather is all I’ve done.

    - - - - -

    Arriving back from a trail ride early Sunday (don’t ask) I was at a loose end. One of those ends that could only be tied by doing something different. None of the pressing jobs either seemed appealing or had time to be adequately addressed in an afternoon.

    Rusty, time to get busy! Rusty was a TM purchase & had been living on the North Shore. A mate went to pick her up & reported it belonged to some Old Hippy with a dozen broken vehicles in a house on blocks with a caravan. A total Gunner (I was Gunna get around to fixing it up but. . . ). From the look of the bores this was a very low mileage bike which had some perhaps electrical fault so it was parked & left to die under a tree.

    Perfectly complete but left to rust to death. I hate fuckin Hippies!

    Ok so strip down time & retrieve loom & electrical parts all missing or bodged on the other bike. Seat locks, horn, ignition, some cables, all very serviceable.

    The rest is a total waste of otherwise undamaged tinware ally etc.

    Ok so now I have parts & a list. Once I get things together I will sell off the old useable parts (I have 3 bottom ends sets of forks etc) but I’m still after a decent front mudguard.

    Here’s a picture It’s an after picture. OK it’s someone else’s after picture but what I am aiming for. Actual pics when I bring the camera cable into werk my wife thoughtfully ‘cleared away’.

    Philosophy: I believe it is important to have one at the start of any project. When for example making a racebike it is important to decide if you will ever put it back to road to sell it. If you can make the jump to ‘never again’ then it makes the project more focussed & frees up inhibitions. Sadly the ‘Good’ bike had a few of these festooned on it as I try to retrieve it to road. This is where Rusty gives her organs for transplant.

    . . .So my philosophy is to make a nice run around in very near to shiny new condition. But not concourse. Not all 100% original. The paint for example will be my take on a Suzuki gold/bronze or similar. It will run modern comfortable grips & decent tyres. I may mod the brakes to make them safe. This will be my interpretation of how I remember these cool little bikes. The train spotters will be able to pick the odd hole, but screw ‘em.

    Sadly action will again be delayed, but perhaps 2 years in the future you will be reading about this neat little run about I can take to rallys etc. But I will update this as weekend afternoons occur when I can attack small ‘projecettes’.

    Rusty gets neckid pics to follow.
