My 1977 Suzuki GT750B

1 of 2

I bought my Water Buffalo brand new in 1977 when I was 20 years old. It was sitting next to a new GS750E with similar paint. I picked the GT.

I rode from New Jersey to California in 1979 after adding Superbike Bars, moving the brake calipers around and changing the shocks.

Last registered in 1985, it spent the last 23 years moving from garage to garage while I rode other (various) machines.

It was then restored by a Brit living in Southern California in 2004. Just won “Best Suzuki” trophy at the 11th annual 2-Stroke Awards in L.A. It’s my “baby”.
