Description

This is a 1972 Suzuki GT750J with 12. 43 miles.   I am listing this bike to see if there is any interest in it before I tackle the project myself.   The bike is very original and complete but I have not had it running.   I have hooked a battery to it and it does crank over. it has spark and the compression reads 120 on all cylinders.   The lights. signals. horn. meter lights. electric starter and the electric fan all work.   What it needs is a complete fuel system cleaning.   The carburetors and petcock are gummed up from sitting and the inside of the tank smells of old fuel.   Carburetor kits are available from Keyster and others. and Suzuki still sells everything you need to rebuild the petcock.   I have no idea when this bike last ran but I am fairly confident that it will fire right up once the fuel system is serviced.

Cosmetically the bike is rider quality but could easily be brought to the next level.   The tank has a few surface rust spots on it and the inside of the tank is rusty and needs cleaning.   The side covers are in good shape and have all of their tabs.   The seat has been recovered at some point and has a crack in the seat pan at the forward hinge.   The fenders are actually quite nice and the pipes have no scrapes or road rash on them.   The right pipe has one dent where it appears the kick lever hit it.   The alternator cover and ignition cover have no scrapes or any evidence that the bike has ever been down.    It has a tool kit. Suzuki ??S?? mirrors. a nice little factory Suzuki parcel carrier on the back. and all of the exhaust cones are present and in good shape.  The tires are newer Dunlop K291's with plenty of tread and no sidewall cracking.

I DO NOT HAVE A TITLE or any paperwork for this bike.   Since it is a 1972 it?s fairly easy to get a Transferable Registration (or a Title depending on your state) but I have not pursued that course of action yet.   I MAY END THIS AUCTION AT ANY TIME if I sell the bike. or if I get bored and start working on it myself. in which case it will be back in the spring in running condition.

Please e-mail me if you have any specific questions.
