I came across one of these on craigslist today.
Talked to the owner briefly. Here's what I found out.
1987 Suzuki Intruder
700cc Shaft Drive V-Twin
No pics but says it's purple with mag wheels and good tires.
Hasn't ridden it in about three years (broke his back) but it has been kept indoors and covered since.
He said the only thing (other than having sit) that he knows to be wrong with it is the backrest pad is missing from the sissy bar.
He's asking $500 for it.
He had no pics of the bike in the ad, but I found this pic of the same model on bikepics.com
I've been looking for some general info on the bike. I checked out bikez.com and suzukicycles.org
Neither site lists the bike. Closest I could find was a VS 750 Intruder for that year. But, I did find pics of them on bikepics.com from American members so clearly the 700 existed.
Anybody have any information on them?
Suzukicycles.org lists the 750 as having 55hp and weighing 431 pounds (dry).
It would seem reasonable to me that a 700 would be down slightly in hp and weight, but I can't find any specs on them to verify that.
Anybody familiar with them?
And, any thoughts on them in general? Good deal or is it something to avoid for a person stepping up from a Nighthawk 250.
