Launched at the Tokyo show in 1971, Suzuki's new GT750 flagship was, as its name suggests, more Gran Turismo than outright sports bike. First of a family of Suzuki two-stroke triples, the newcomer retained the cylinder dimensions of the existing T500 air-cooled twin, but with the added refinements of water-cooling and an electric starter. Top speed was around 115mph but more important was the effortless cruising capability. Modifications were not long in coming, the GT750K gaining twin front disc brakes (replacing the original double-sided drum) for 1973. 'It's solid and utterly secure at the ton and comfortably relaxing in a way that only a heavyweight cruiser can be, but it's also perfectly manageable trickling along at walking pace,' declared Bike magazine. This early drum-braked example has been fully restored, including new crankcase seals and new tyres. The machine is described as in generally excellent condition and offered with two expired MoTs and Swansea V5C document.
