Post Listing Update: This GS750 was pulled off of eBay, final sale price unknown.

Introduced in 1977, Suzuki’s GS750 was an attempt to right the ship after their expensive investment into the rotary RE-5 did not pay off. The company was better known for their 2-strokes (like the GT750 “Water Buffalo”) at that point, so a 4-stroke 750 was unexpected. But it was very well done, liked by the press and the public alike. For more about the GS750, check out this feature on Motorcycle Classics which is full of period quotes like Rider magazine’s “This 750 performs like no other stock 750 ever made and promises to capture a large share of this popular market” or Cycle World’s description of “a quiet, tasteful motorcycle which is also the quickest and best-handling 750 on the market.”

This first-year example (VIN: GS750-11163) stands out thanks to a Rajay turbocharger paired with a Blake manifold and 38mm Mikuni carb. The kit was supposedly installed back in 1977, and everything is said to work. The motor has been freshened up with new OEM valves, new OEM valve seals, and new gaskets. The turbo was also given a service and is said to be like new – the sale includes some spare turbo parts, as well. The sale includes a boost gauge
