1968 Suzuki B100P Filippino Taxi

Congratulations to Frank Spitzer of Costa Mesa for winning Bike of the Month with his 1968 Suzuki B100P Filipino Taxi. Frank won a $20.00 Beach Burgers gift certificate provided by Beach Burgers and The Scooter Solution.

Frank usually rides his 1979 Yamaha RD400 Daytona Special to our meet, but after taking possession of this taxi three days ago, knew he had to bring it to the meet.

Frank inherited the taxi from his father, Frank Spitzer, Sr. who passed away last year. Legend has it that Frank Sr. was in the Philippines and was tired of waiting for a taxi, so he bought one. He brought it over to the states around 1991.

The 1958 Thunderbird styled taxi is connected to a 1968 Suzuki B100P 115cc single two-stroke. Frank cleaned and waxed it, changed the oil and it started right up after being stored for many years.

Thank you Frank for bringing it to our meet. View all the photos in our August Gallery.
