The Suzuki Motor Co. was established in 1909 by Michio Suzuki to produce machinery for the cotton industry. An initial diversification into 4-wheeled transport was curtailed by WW2 but after the war, Japan had a need for cheap reliable transport so Suzuki, like a lot of others around the world, began to produce clip-on engines for pushbikes. These proved to be an immediate success and soon they were making full motorcycles and by the early 60s were second only to Honda in numbers of two-wheelers manufactured. In the early 1970s the GT380, GT550 and GT750 three-cylinder range was launched proving to be 'the last hurrah' for the large capacity two-stroke engine. The GT750 was the first mass-produced water-cooled road bike and formed the basis of the famous 'Flexi Flyer' Formula 750 race bike.
This authentically restored GT750 'Kettle', as they were affectionately known - due to the ‘liquid-cooling', has been part of a small private collection of 1970s Japanese classic motorcycles for the last few years. Reported to be in 'good working order' by the vendor, this GT750 is offered with a current V5C.
