Nah, that's a hideous colour but the auction's probably real. If they ask for cash on collection it's usually not a scam. Just refuse to pay up in advance.

What on earth are you doing up at this time of the morning? I thought it was reserved for insomniacs and Yankees

Don't suppose anyone can tell the age of This ebay Suzuki from the shape/graphics? It looks far too clean to be the '83 he thinks it is. I held off bidding on it just in case.

It was the two pictures only, cash on delivery bit that had me thinking.


I fall in to the former group there.


If you look on the history of the suz site, you can see a cowel like this on an 80's engine, so think the guy might be on the money...
If you buy it,I'll be interested in seeing the how hard you SR4 goes you will won't be able to blink with the acceleration.

I was actually thinking of upgrading to a 5.4. Had that been a mistake and it was a later engine I would have bid on it but I don't fancy an '83 Suzuki. They didn't get called Alka-Seltzers for nothing...

It's ended now anyway.
