1973 Suzuki TM-250K Champion
A restoration designed for racing, rather than displaying in the lounge room. Future work includes finding an original pipe and the original metal frame for the air filter. The tank badge is also incorrect, it should just be a sticker.
Just like it’s predecessor, the 1972 Suzuki TM-250J Champion, the 1973 Suzuki TM-250K Champion was nick named the “Champion” because of Joel Robert who rode his Suzuki to a 250 MX world championship 3 years in a row (1970-1972).
The tank badges on the ’72 were replaced with stickers on the ’73 model along with an updated clutch.
