Suzuki K10P - Teardown

It only took about an hour to get the K10 torn down to the frame.  Unlike the Miyata or Bridgestone BS7 (my last projects) this little Suzuki was much more simple, with several different items sharing a common bolt/nut.  For example, the lower engine mount not only mounts the engine to the frame, but it secures the footpegs and side stand.  The swingarm bolt also acts as an exhaust mount.  My little nut/bolt box has about half the nuts and bolts in it compared to even a Honda Cub.

Pressed steel frame weighs in at a whopping 15.8 pounds 

Rear fender is actually bolted on to main frame
