Strong Suzuki

 I found these pictures on the net a long time ago, not sure where, possibly an ebay auction? I recall it was identified as a "Strong Suzuki" but searches yield no results.
It's an interesting special that someone put a lot of work into. The bike seems to be based on a rotary disc Suzuki TS or AS50 engine mated to a watercooled cylinder that might be handmade. The head looks like it could have been made in several parts on a lathe. The frame seems inspired by Seeley but with a unique rubber band-type rear suspension.
 Disc brakes and front forks from the seventies date the bike but other than that, not many clues to its origin.
