Suzuki's 1960s expansion was founded on a range of two-stroke ultra-lightweights, which, although of small capacity, offered a useful performance increase over the ubiquitous 50cc 'step-thru' moped. One of the most popular was the five-speed A50 series, first introduced in 1968, which featured a 50cc disc-valve engine producing 4.9bhp. Models within this family included the A50 tourer, AS50 and AC50 sports, and the pedal-equipped AP50 'Sixteener Special', the latter built specifically for the UK market where 16-year-olds were restricted to riding 50cc machines fitted with pedals. Last taxed to 31st January 2015, this AS50 displays a total of 8,290 miles on the odometer and is offered for restoration. The machine's mechanical condition is not known; accordingly, prospective purchasers must satisfy themselves with regard to its condition, completeness, correctness, or otherwise prior to bidding. A potentially most rewarding project for the Suzuki enthusiast, the machine is offered with a V5C document and HPI printout. Sold strictly as viewed.
