Description

The success of Honda’s CB750 made it inevitable that the other major Japanese manufacturers would offer multi-cylinder 4-strokes, and Suzuki’s first – the GS750 – arrived in 1976. The GS750’s DOHC 8-valve engine was very similar in design to Kawasaki’s successful Z1 900 motor, and it became the design basis for all air-cooled Suzuki 4-stroke fours until the release of the 16-valve GSX models. The new 72hp GS750 was lauded for its handling at the time of its release, which was a significant improvement over its Japanese contemporaries – they being the older Honda CB750, the shaft-drive Yamaha XS750 triple and the more powerful but wayward handling Kawasaki Z900.

The attractive GS750-powered custom bike offered here was built during the mid/late 1990s – the V5 document dates it to 1997. It features a hardtail frame with a sprung seat and an Easy Rider-style, stars-and-stripes peanut tank. In addition the GS motor it employs many standard Suzuki GS parts such as the wheels, brakes and forks, and with a comfortable riding position and sensible frame geometry it should be easy to ride with straightforward maintenance while also being a genuine head-turner.
