Funny Video, but strangely enough, someone I know here in Japan had one of these stored up, until just last week here in Tokyo. Was a nice and clean example.... I tried kick starting it last Thursday (Didn\'t know the battery was disconnected, doh!) and even with all my weight on it, it would hardly turn over.... Good compression despite 43,000km on the odometer.

It\'s just been sold to someone in Okinawa, which is a group of small Japanese islands around 3 hour\'s flight from Tokyo.... For £3,000!!

Still collectable, then :) :D

Those old vids are great! I keep expecting Ultraman to appear... I think I\'m too much of an otaku sometimes! ;)
Cheers

Japanese Police Suzuki RE5 photo...
Edit- Note the display card has the bikes original designation of \'RX5\' on it (Suzuki changed the name to RE5 at the start of production).
