Here's a better picture.



The only clue I have so far is that it says "Tokico Japan" on the back.

too small to be an h1 (73-76) caliper. Could be a 72 h1 caliper but I doubt it. Looks like it may be a suzuki caliper like a GT500 or GT550 caliper. May even be a smaller honda caliper (cb400 or cb350F).

I don't think Honda calipers mount like that either. I would start looking at pictures of old Suzuki's or Kawi's. I'm pretty sure its not Honda or Yamaha. I don't know alot about European bike though.

Steve,

It's a Suzuki GT250 caliper. 1973-1976. Also used on the 73-76 GT380, GT550, and the left side of the GT750. The rebuild kit with the piston and seals should be Suzuki part number: 59100-18834

You can look at on-line Suzuki fiches here:

www.alpha-sports.com

Although the prices at www.ronayers.com are better. The trick with them is you have to order on-line. If you call, you'll be told they don't sell vintage parts....
