The “Waterbus” was Suzuki’s weapon to combat the sales success of the Honda CB750 and Kawasaki’s release of the Z1900, however, it would be fair to say that despite the success of the GT over many years Suzuki misread where their engineering and development should have been aimed – at four strokes !
Despite that, the GT750 sold in reasonable numbers and was chosen by both the factory and many private teams as the basis of a very successful race bike for the World Championship Formula 750 series – even Barry Sheene raced one to great success.
The early GT750’s featured an almost outdated, at the time, Four Leading Shoe front drum brake – which quickly gave way to double disc brakes in years to come – however, today that Four Leading Shoe brake is worth a pretty penny and is sought after by custom bike builders world wide.
This very original example was manufactured in February 1972 and has covered 18,708 miles and presents very well for a 42 year old motorcycle.
Very collectable and still a great ride. Call Richard Scoular today.
