1972 Suzuki GT750J
Registration no. TSX 478K
Frame no. GT750-31098
Engine no. GT750-38059
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. Believed a relatively recent restoration, this GT750J was acquired by the vendor one year ago and ridden on half a dozen occasions last summer before being placed in dry storage in September 2020. Sold to make room for an expanding collection of classic BMWs, the machine is offered with a V5C document. The vendor advises us that the engine would benefit from a service.
