I’ve never seen a Running When Parked offered with as many spare parts and so much love already invested. It is kinda crazy that it is an actual Running When Parked. There are a couple of red flags. Why invest so much time, money and sweat into a cute little Suzuki and then offer it as a non-runner? The other problem is the asking price of $2500 with the claim the bike will be worth $5000 when completed. That seems like a stretch.
Still, Suzuki fans should be attracted to all the parts being offered. One other word of warning. This is not a model that was sold in the United States so you will be paying extra freight costs on parts sourced on eBay. If the bike is still available, you can check it out here.
The phrase “Running When Parked” (RWP) is code for a once treasured possession that has been neglected in the corner of the garage or tool shed for far too long. Lacking the energy, time or resources to bring the little beauty back to life, the owner lists it for sale in hopes that a new owner will massage it back to health. Our collection of RWP bikes fall into two distinct categories; treasure or trash. And you are the only one who can properly judge which category the bike belongs in.
