Here’s one of the coolest bikes we’ve had the chance to feature over on Iconic Motorbike Auctions – an ex-Australian Police Suzuki Water Buffalo! Suzuki offered police versions of both the GT500 and the GT750 – the latter was built sold between 1972 and 1976 mostly in Asia and Africa, though a few made their way to Europe and Australia as well. Both models were called the Patroller.
There were several special features just for the Patroller:
– two 107mm lights mounted on the crash bars, controlled by a switch on the right handlebar. There’s a pilot lamp on the upper portion of the housing so the rider can quickly determine if the lights are on or off.
– more accurate speedometer with a button that will stop the needle at a given speed – pace a speeder and hit the button and you’ll lock in what they were traveling at.
– 9.4″ x 12.6″ x 3.3″ document box with a night light in place of the passenger seat.
– electric siren that’s activated via a handlebar switch.
This example (VIN: GT750-62051) has 66,184 kilometers (41,124 miles) on the odometer. Unfortunately, the owner passed away a couple of weeks ago and his wife is now looking for a good home with someone that will appreciate the bike. The radiator has a hole in it, however the sale includes a new replacement as well as a few spare parts: exhaust, seat, rings, brake shoes, and several other small pieces that the wife cannot identify. Even better, the sale includes the original police helmet and old gloves that are still in the packaging.
