1985 Suzuki GSX750ES
Registration no. C630 TPY
Frame no. GR72A000000114423
Engine no. R70300120817
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. We are advised that this GSX750ES was running perfectly when placed in dry storage in December 2010, since when it has not been used. Sold to reduce the owner’s collection and create garage space, the machine comes with owner’s handbook and an alternative (higher) screen, and is offered with SORN and old/current Swansea V5/V5C documents. A total of 19,917 miles is displayed on the odometer. No reserve.
