Suzuki rewrote the 750-class rulebook when it launched the GSX-R750 back in 1985. The 'Gixxer's development had been heavily influenced by lessons learned from the works TT F1 and Endurance racers; lighter than a 600 and as powerful as a 1000, it made all other super-sports 750s seem flabby and slow. One of the modern era's few instant classics and the sole surviving Japanese 750cc sports bike, the GSX-R750 has been a huge commercial success for Suzuki and enjoys cult status today. Now more than 20 years old, many early GSX-Rs have suffered at the hands of successive owners, a state of affairs that has resulted in well preserved examples, such as that offered here, becoming increasingly sought after by collectors. Previously treated to an extensive restoration by the former owner. Works undertaken include all new paint and decals, wheels blasted and repainted, engine repainted, brakes stripped and repainted, carburettors overhauled, seat re-covered, all plastics refurbished, and the forks stripped and rebuilt. Presented in virtually 'as new' condition, it represents a rare opportunity to acquire a faithfully restored example of Suzuki's iconic 'Gixxer', which can only become increasingly collectible with time. Purchased by the current vendor at Bonhams' Harrogate auction in 2014 (Lot 40) and has been in storage since. Accompanying documentation consists of DVLA-supplied MoT history, V5C registration document and expired MoT certificate (June 2014). A Micron silencer is the only notified deviation from factory specification.
