1964 Suzuki T10 250

Highlights


• Lovely original condition
• A great usable classic
• MOT & Road Tax exempt

BACKGROUND


Suzuki made the 250cc two-stroke twin T10 from 1962 until 1967. For its age it featured some quite advanced equipment such as an electric start and a hydraulic rear drum brake operation, rather than with the usual cable.

It was also the first bike that Suzuki imported and sold in America, under the name El Camino, being aimed more at the commuter market rather than the sporting rider.

HISTORY


This nice and original Suzuki T10 was imported into the UK in February 2020, since which time it has been lightly restored, received a full engine strip-down and rebuild and been fully serviced.

There is unfortunately no history or paperwork that came with the bike but the available Nova Certificate shows proof of importation and that all taxes have been paid, which will allow the next owner to register it in the UK.

The mileage recorded on the speedometer cannot be verified and with only 1,600 miles showing it is assumed that the clock has been changed or reset at some point in its history.

PAPERWORK


The bike comes with 2 keys and the NOVA certificate of importation.

It should be registered as an Historic Vehicle and thus will require no MOT or Road Tax.

CONDITION


The bike has been lightly restored and looks good with several key pieces of chrome being re-chromed, such as the exhaust, side panels, and headlight surround. The polished engine cases have been highly polished and the seat is in great shape. 

The paintwork is all original and showing signs of use both on the tank and the mudguards. The wheels, front forks, handlebars and levers could all do with some work to bring them up to the standard of the rest of the bike, or not, it’s all down to personal preference.

The gold Suzuki badges on the side-panels have actually been gold-plated rather than painted gold and add to the bike’s unique charm and character.

MECHANICS


As part of its renovation the engine, brakes and suspension have all been rebuilt and the bike is now fully serviced and ready for auction.

It starts well and has recently had a new battery fitted, but the current owner has advised that as the bike has been standing a while the carbs may need cleaning.

THE APPEAL


One for a Suzuki collector perhaps or someone looking for a very retro, easy to maintain classic bike that is just about as original as they come to have some fun with.

Either way, early Japanese motorcycles from the 60’s now seem to be in ever-greater demand and to find one in such overall good original condition is getting harder and harder.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.

Anti-sniping

C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 5-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

If your maximum bid is below the reserve price you'll bid that amount if you are the highest bidder.

If your maximum bid is above the reserve and you are the highest bidder - we will only auto-bid for you up to the reserve price.

Once the reserve has been met, C&C will make sure you are the highest bidder using the bidding increments stated below, keeping you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR up until just below your maximum bid when the increment value would have taken you higher than your maximum bid.

Once the reserve has been met C&C will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below, keeping you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR up to the next increment closest to your maximum bid if your maximum bid isn't enough for the increment value.


Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000+ £500.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.
