Description

1975 Suzuki GT750
Registration no. JEH 42N
Frame no. 63024
Engine no. 68998

Suzuki went into sensory overload at the 1970 introduction of the Suzuki GT750, one of the most interesting designs in a splendid period for motor-cyclists. A liquid-cooled version of the race-winning T500 with an extra cylinder, the GT750 was though, emphatically a touring machine with drum brakes and comprehensive equipment. Reliable to a fault, even the weight - heavy by the standards of the day, but normal now - did not deter the buying public. By 1975, the GT750 had acquired a power increase to 73 bhp - then a huge figure - and much-needed twin front disc brakes as well as improved carburation and exhausts, finding a genuine 120mph given the right road. This one-owner, beautiful example has been the property of a deceased enthusiast who maintained the Suzuki to extremely high standards, using it only in the dry. In un-modified and absolutely pristine condition, the 750 comes complete with V5C and all of its original papers and tool-kit, needing only the usual safety checks, offered with MOT and tax to be ready for the road and Club scene.
