Post Sale Update: This 750GT sold for $25,000 after 20 bids on eBay.

The last time I featured a 750GT, Paul d’Orleans called it “the best motorcycle of the 1970s. Period.” What more of an endorsement could you want? This example was recently restored by the experts at Austin Vintage Cycle, so you’ll be all set to enjoy it for years to come.

The 748cc twin produced 60 horsepower, which was good enough to push the 407 pound (dry) bike up to 125 miles per hour. Original MSRP was $1,995. Want to learn more? Check out a lengthy write-up here on Motorcycle Classics about what makes the 750GT so special.

This example was originally acquired by AVC and the seller claimed it was a runner – turns out that wasn’t correct. So they decided to do a “full restoration” which included a repaint of the frame and bodywork, an engine rebuild with new case bearings/rods/pistons/rings/valve job, rebuilt gauges, the dashboard from a 750 Sport, new wiring harness, new seat cover, new steering stem bearings, rebuilt front forks, rebuilt carbs, and plenty more.
