EDITOR TERLICK: Suzuki’s T20 hit the market as a high-tech marvel when it was released late in 1965 and went on to dominate production-bike race meetings around the world. While its six-speed gearbox was the T20’s big headline, it also boasted a twin-leading shoe front brake and just under 30 horsepower from its 250cc engine, good enough to push the bike to 92mph and a 15.3-second quarter mile. Also known as the 250 Hustler, the bike introduced Suzuki’s PosiForce lubrication system — petrol in the main tank, oil in another — to save owners the hassle of mixing fuel. And how cool are those external fork spring? This bike of Alex’s looks like a rare find indeed, in outstanding condition after a thorough and professional rebuild. Lovely. Learn more here.
