The History of the Beamish Marque

In the early 70's, the sale of Suzuki motocross machines for the UK was being handled by the Brighton-based firm of off-road machine specialists, Beamish Motors. Run by Graham Beamish, a former BSA works rider of International repute, they were sent a batch of 50 RL250 trials models at the beginning of the 1974 season, to sell through their dealership network.

By this time, Brian Fowler was working full-time for Beamish Motors and he took an RL250 to Mick Whitlock, a trials rider who was an acknowledged master builder of trials-type frames. Whitlock produced a frame made from lightweight Reynolds 531 tubing, finished in hard chrome, the bronze welding being of the very highest standard. This was called the 'Whitehawk' frame. Visually, it proved to be a very attractive frame too and it says much for Whitlock's expertise that his prototype design proved exactly right after extensive testing. Within the week a deal was closed for Whitlock to supply Beamish Motors with replacement frames suitable for converting the standard RL250 models for the 1975 season.

The Suzuki factory was delighted with the success of the Beamish operation and as a mark of their approval, they gave Beamish Motors the world-wide manufacturing rights for Suzuki-powered trials machines, an unprecedented step for a Japanese manufacturer to make. They agreed to supply all of the components that Beamish Motors needed to build complete machines and also undertook to design a larger capacity engine unit (the black engine model) to Beamish requirements.

In 1979 the RL250 model was continued, now with air forks and a new yellow and black livery . The last of the sliver engine Beamish Suzuki models in 1978 was the RL250a which was in red and black livery.

A new RL250 made its debut at the 1979 Earls Court Show, based on the already successful RL325 model and having a similar engine and frame layout. And so the development progamme continued into the eighties, with the promise of even more advanced designs to meet the ever changing requirements of the world's trials riders.

Production of the Beamish Suzuki ended in 1981.
