“Whopper of a chopper.” That what Suzuki’s tongue-in-cheek branding for the OR50 (called the Mame-Tan in Japan).

They also said that this “mini-chopper is maximum roadster” with the back rest, high-rise handlebars, and even optional flame decals.

A 49cc “Power Reed” engine yielded 5.5 horsepower and the bike weighed just 148 pounds.

This example is VIN: OR502115815, Engine #: OR502-115911. We believe it’s a 1979 model, but we cannot confirm that.

The odometer shows 10,885 kilometers (6,763 miles).

This bike is currently missing a headlight bulb and the front left turn signal lens, however we will make sure that both are installed before the bike ships.

We believe this OR50 is stock.

Cosmetic Blemishes: please see the album up top for all known cosmetic blemishes. Here is a selection:

Inside of the tank:

It is riding on IRC/Inoue tires that have aged out and have cracked sidewalls.

The sale includes one key.

Currently located at our facility in Santa Monica, California (please make an appointment for an inspection), this Suzuki is offered on a Bill of Sale only. Have any OR50 stories or questions about this listing? Let us know in the “Comments” tab!
