1981 Suzuki GSX750 'Silver Suzi' Limited Edition
Frame no. GS75X-520696
Engine no. GS750X-147074
Suzuki's first multi-cylinder four-stroke - the GS750 - arrived in 1976 and within a few years there were GS models of varying engine capacities. The next phase of development saw the range updated to four-valves-per-cylinder 'GSX' specification in 1980. Moving further away from its two-stoke origins, Suzuki abandoned the GS's built-up roller-bearing crankshaft in favour of a more conventional forged item with plain bearings. The GSX's cycle parts were state-of-the-art, if conventional, comprising a tubular steel frame, telescopic forks, twin-shock rear suspension, alloy wheels and triple disc brakes. Suzuki claimed a top speed of 120mph with the quarter-mile despatched in 12.5 seconds. Introduced in 1981, the 'Silver Suzi' was a cosmetically enhanced, though mechanically identical, limited edition model. Number '260' out of 500 made, this 'Silver Suzi' currently displays a total of 12,251 kilometres on the odometer and is described as in generally good condition. The machine is offered with Netherlands registration papers.
