Contrary to the approach of Honda, Kawasaki, and Yamaha, Suzuki's trials model was created from a cooperation between Suzuki GB and Graham Beamish, using modified versions of the bullet proof TS motor, installed in state-of-the-art chassis constructed by Mick Whitlock, the well-known Hampshire artisan, who'd produced Bob Gollner's greatly revered run of Cheetah trials bikes in the late 1960s. The Suzuki cocktail certainly worked, with impressive solo results at all levels, plus three memorable British Sidecar Championships by Colin Dommett/Eric Chamberlain. On this later model RL, the plating and paintwork are well preserved, with the vendor confirming "...it has stood for many years, in virtually unblemished condition, and runs as nicely as it looks!" Offered without documentation.
