Like all the Japanese manufacturers, Suzuki recognised the importance of the North American 'off-road' market and began offering appropriate models in the mid-1960s. Its first efforts were modified roadsters but as development progressed Suzuki's street scramblers became more capable on the dirt. One of the most successful was the TS range of single-cylinder two-stroke trial bikes, which commenced in 1969 with the TS250, while the successor ER series shifted the focus even more towards off-road capability. A relatively recent acquisition for James May's collection, this TS250 was returned to standard trim in 2014 using second-hand parts and a new-old-stock exhaust system. Currently taxed, the machine is described as in generally good condition mechanically, starting readily with only a little smoke. Accompanying documentation consists of a purchase receipt, recently expired MoT and old/current V5C documents, and the Suzuki also comes with an original owner's manual and a Haynes manual.
