1968 Suzuki A100
Frame no. to be advised
Engine no. 16449
In 1968, the largest capacity Suzuki you could buy was a 500, the Cobra. Smaller were a couple of 305 cc models, and a couple of 250s and 200s, all six 2-stroke twins. Then there was a 120 single, a 100 and a 90 cc single. Suzuki's A100 is a 98 cc air-cooled, single cylinder 2-stroke with a rotary valve, and Posi-Force oil-and-gas mixing, offering about 10 horsepower at 8,000 rpm with a 4-speed transmission. And should you be so lucky to have added a race kit it could have turned into a fire-breathing 16 horsepower at 9,000 rpm. It was dual seat roadster plenty strong to commute on, and even some would say, strong enough to go touring. It featured a covered rear drive chain and front fork gaiters, a kick stand and center stand, and a 100 mph speedometer which also clarifies that '60 mph = 2240rpm'.

The bike being offered which was bought by the Vandergriffs in July of 2006 from a Paul Miller of Kensington, Connecticut, appears to be in good condition, not restored, complete but now a little shop-soiled. Suzukis from the 1960s are rare, Suzukis that are believed to be an unmolested original are 'never seen.' This opportunity is not to be missed. Careful recommissioning is necessary.
