1967 Suzuki Scrambler 250 Enduro

My uncle bought this bike when it was brand new, then he was drafted. He did not ride the bike much when he returned so it has been sitting in his garage for many years. I asked him, if you ever want to get rid of the bike, could I please have it. Growing up I would find myself out in his garage staring at this motorcycle. I could not get over how beautiful it was. In 1992 he gave me the bike. I was pregnant with my second daughter at the time, so did not think it was wise to start riding it right away. It took me 16 more years before I could find someone to work on it with me. All it took was some cleaning up and now, at the age of 45, I'm riding the bike daily. This bike sat for 37 years without being started. Had only 1600 original miles on it. The only new parts are spark plugs and a battery. It is completely original. Someone recently told me that the paint job on it makes it even more rare. I have no intention of selling the bike. I just feel so privileged to own it and able to ride it. I sure love this bike. Oh, and my uncle is amazed that it's running now too. I'm old enough now to be his mother when he first bought it. Ha!

I am currently restoring this motorcycle in Italy with a lot of patience, having to do a great job of finding for each piece. I have already found and prepared every piece. In the spring assembrerò completely. I will publish the results of the full. Wow!

I bought a new '67 Scrambler for the 6 weeks I had before going to Viet Nam. Rode it to death in those 6 weeks! Great fun!

Thanks for the memories...
by: Mike

Seeing your beautifully restored X-6 brought back memories of my 69 "Blue Babe". What a great bike!!

Best to you, and take care out on the road.

That looks exactly like my 1969 TC250, except for the color. Mine is black/gray. Are you sure it's a '67? tahmi-three-at-gmail.

Nice Bike.

1967 Hustler X6 T20
by: freddy

I am looking for parts for my 1967 x6 Suzuki, handle bars, speedometer motor parts like carburetor, heads, battery box and manual. This bike was given to me, it has 16,000 mile according to partial reading. This bike has been sitting outside since 1975. So you see what I am up against, thank you for any help.

X6 Street Scrambler
by: Bob

Bought a 1966 X6 street version new while stationed at Ft. Sill Oklahoma in Jan 1967 and rode it home to Pennsylvania in the days before radar. Did 105 mph according to the speedo on a long 4 lane stretch in Indiana - feet on the back pegs, laying down on the tank with my left hand beside the headlight and the quarter turn throttle cranked wide open. Years later, I bought a 1967 Street Scrambler from my brother which has been residing in my garage since the mid eighties. I've been seriously considering bringing it back to life soon. It is a great bike and would outrun any reasonable competition in its day. You are blessed to have one in such original condition.

T250 Scrambler
by: Husabob


I just finished resurrecting a nice 1970 T250 scrambler. It runs sweet, and goes like stink, trailing blue smoke wherever I ride it. It has just over 5K miles, and I only put rings in cuz I had it apart. My T250 is complete, but has a non original paint job. Currently registered in New Hampshire, and for sale for $975. You can see a YouTube video of it running, by searching YouTube for Husabob1. husabob(at)yahoo(dot)com

Very Compliments
by: Anonymous

I own a Suzuki T 500 Titan and I'm really happy. They also own a Honda CL77 Scrambler 305 of 1963 with great sacrifice that I put in brand new condition. ME AND enjoy it A LOT! However, I envy you for your wonderful Suzuki. Hello from Italy.

Now I am Jealous
by: Steve Newbauer

Now I am jealous! I used to have a 1967 Suzuki 250 X6 Scrambler. I bought it brand new when I was serving in the Navy. I loved that bike! It sure was fast. I raced a lot of much larger bikes and never was beat ... at least not until we got up to about 70 mph. It was an incredible machine. I really miss it and would love to have it back. But, alas, that isn't going to happen.

Great to see a TC250 in such original condition. I brought mine home from 10yrs of storage last weekend and the restoration is about to start. I would love to see some photo's of yours so mine can shape up near as good.

So Nice

How fortunate you are to have such a wonderful bike with a family history to boot. I hope you take good care of her!!!

I did not mean to leave my comment annonymous, sorry. One more thing...no, I have not named the bike yet. I want it to have one, but nothing has come to mind yet. I'll let you know if I do name it.

Thanks Everyone
by: Anonymous

Wow, I did not expect so many wonderful comments so quickly. Thank you everyone. Yes, it is a two cylinder. Sorry, I'll never sell it. And as of now, I'm not sure which of my two daughters or nephews or nieces would want to take it after I'm gone. I'm actually creating a work of art around the bike and it's story. Perhaps I'll upload the print after I'm finished creating it.

Thanks again and keep the comments coming. It's so wonderful to hear from folks with the same interests as well as learn more about what you may know about this bike. Matter of fact, part of the work of art I'm creating mentions the creation of new relationships that this bike will bring to me.

Suzuki Scrambler
by: Laura

And some girls have all the luck!!! I'm sure it is due to your awesome Karma, and remember timing is everything. Enjoy that beauty! Ride On!

The way you describe this bike shows how much you love it. It is one SWEET lil bike. Nice job on the upkeep.

Damn! How lucky can you get. Not only is it beautiful, I believe it has the same engine as the "T20" low pipe, street only version otherwise known as the X-6 Hustler.

The T20/X-6 was truly the first asian Giant-Killer, and I've read of incidents where it was timed on radar at 105mph!

I don't know enough about this edition or can see well enough in the picture whether it's a twin, but if so it may not have the same gearing.

The thing about 2-strokes is they're a lot simpler to work on, w/o valves & cams up top. That's beautiful, and as a vintage two stroke nut that LOVES bikes like that and my RDs (Yamaha 2 stroke street bikes from early 70s) I would be first in line if you EVER changed your mind about selling it. I'm turning green right now even though I have nearly all the bikes I ever wanted!

Kim what a beautiful motorcycle and how lovely that it is still in the "family". Did you name your bike? It seems it should have a fitting name. I hope you have many more years on your mc and who know it may be around for your daughter or son. :)
