Anyone have any classic pics of some 96-98 F&S Suzuki's? Just wondering how they were trimmed out back then.

Charles Castloo used to race for them and those bikes were always gorgeous! I think he rode for them in 02 or something.

Thanks guys. A friend of mine picked up a 1996 RM250 that was in real bad shape, but it had a F&S seat cover, gold excel rims, metal throttle tube, and some other doo dads which just made me wonder if it could have been an old F&S bike.

Oh man! I rode for F&S in 2002 and 2003...I loved those bikes and how they looked! The 2002 stars and stripes design with the blue seats...a real looker! My Old man had my RM125 on a factory level that year. Miss those days!

I think the last time I saw one in person was watching Davey Yezek ripping around High Point on his. Had to be around '99 or 2000.

Those RM's were the cats ass. Shop was based out of Ohio. Some fast guys rode those things. Sold the race bikes at the end of the season that were all done up. Always wanted one.

F&S bikes always looked sick. Always bought RM’s from them. The sales volume allowed them to sell bikes at great prices. When the doors were closed at F&S it was certainly loss for the OH. MX scene.

Also distinctly remembering them almost always running Doma Racing pipes/silencers. It seemed so exotic to me at the time! Mostly saw Doma on KTM.

"F&S" was good people - always helped RJV out with bikes and parts when needed.

Danny Carlson rode for them for a few years too. He rode for them in 2001 and I’m pretty sure he led quite a few laps at high point if I remember correctly and finished 6th in one of the 125 motos that day. Those F&S Suzuki’s were beauty’s.

A lot of fast dudes rode for them.
Travis Preston
Greg Rand
Joe Oehlof
Davey Yezek
Just to name a few top guys.

They were the bomb back in the day. Rode for them on 80's. All the fast Suzuki kids were on them. Willards, Browning, Hill, Hyder, etc. Sure made for an awesome paddock with everyone being part of it together. They did some cool packaging with outside sponsors too. We had the Bill's pipes and No Fear kit when I was there.

Did Bryan Johnson ride for F&S? I remember watching him when I was about 19 at Lazy River MX in Chatsworth GA hauling ass on sweet sounding RM250.
