Water Buffalo! 1974 Suzuki GT750
For Sale: 1974 Suzuki GT750 “Water Buffalo”
So you saw THIS POST from Brian on a great, zero mile GT500, and you thought to yourself that it was nice, but just too darn small. Not to worry, rabid CSBFS reader – size inflation is here!
Forget that tiny middle-weight, air-cooled twin cylinder. What we have here is a full 750cc of THREE cylinder, liquid cooled power. Expect in the neighborhood of 70 ponies for a good running bike – which is important because as displacement grew, so did the Suzuki waistband; the GT750 will be 550 lbs ready to ride.
From the seller:
Up for sale is my 1974 Suzuki GT750 Lemans Water buffalo Motorcycle. Clear title. This motorcycle runs real good. It has new tires, battery, front fork seals, front wheel bearings, spark plugs, chain, petcock seals, and seat cover. I bought this motorcycle last year to fix up and keep, however I could use the money more than the motorcycle. Oil and anti-freeze were changed. All parts, tires and fluids were changed 50 miles ago. Gas tank was cleaned, no rust inside. Gas tank was repainted, side covers are original paint, tank does not match exactly to the side covers. This bike came out of a barn and has some rust, please see pictures. The digital indicator works but is not original. There is no reserve.
These GT750s make wonderful collector bikes. They clean up very nicely, have a unique look and a great sound. The two-stroke motor is more accessible to the average mechanic, and parts are still available. Prices for pristine examples have also been on the rise – which means that you can ride AND invest at the same time!
This bike is available now with a $1,600 opening ask. This is a NO RESERVE auction, meaning that some lucky collector will have a new project by the time all is said and done. For your chance to own this significant piece of history, . Don’t forget to tell them that you found it on CSBFS!
