1976 Suzuki RM370A

1976 Suzuki RM370AI’m sure you’ve heard, “If you love something, you set it free”. Well, in Steve’s case, you buy it back nearly 4 decades later! Check out this completely restored 1976 Suzuki RM370A by Steve Stavrakakis and read his cool story!

Here’s my exact 1976 RM370A that I pulled the Holeshot on at Hangtown ’77. The family I sold it to in 1979 still had it! I found it leaning up against a tractor in their shed for over 30 years! I restored it back to showroom new, and it now lives in my living room near my ’75 YZ250!

    What a wonderful story Steve! I’ve been kind of nostalgic in my retirement years and thinking a lot about my ’76 RM370. It was the best bike I ever owned and I so wish it was still parked in the garage, or my living room! Enjoy!
