Super rare 1982 Suzuki GS750SZ Katana in prime OEM condition. Own, show, collect a unique vintage motorcycle and a true piece of motorcycling history. Motorcycle writers called it a “Game Changer”. This 1982 is the original series 1 designed by Hans Muth. It was the fastest and quickest mass production 750 on the planet in its launch year and has set the standard for all superbikes to follow. So revolutionary that it not only has its own Wikipedia entry, production heritage poster, Classic Katana Club of North America (membership can be transferred), Katana Magazine (Japan) but even Tamiya makes a scale plastic model of this bike. This year Suzuki even created a modern tribute bike to this model, but you can own the original for less than the tribute.
I got it back to 90% then “aged-out” on it. Well over $8,000 invested in 2019 alone. Bike stripped down and rebuilt over winter 2019. Paint and bodywork professionally done by Kenny Lang Custom Auto, with 3 coats base and 3 clear lacquer; better than factory. All original decals under lacquer. Too many fresh new OEM parts to list. All aluminum parts (forks, carb bowls, engine cases) hand polished. Calipers torn down, cleaned, new seals, all lines and hoses blown out, bled w new pads, seals, washers, fresh filtered fluids. New fork seals, new chain and both performance drive sprockets replaced. Carbs completely rebuilt. New wheel bearings front and back. Fresh rubber isolators and handlebar dampeners, new tinted windscreen (have original clear as well). New tank bib to prevent scratching. New rubber carb and air box boots w metal clamps. New plugs, oils, filters; all the basics too. Original profile except for stage 1 DynaJet kit and Vance & Hines pipe.
Has to be ridden to be appreciated. Pulls hard and rides rock steady. Needs front tire (dried out and cracked) and anti-dive mechanism rebuilt (kit on backorder). 33,000 km only. Second owner and lovingly care for since 1986. Comes with owner’s manual and a box of parts. Priced for fast sale at $12,900.00 OBO. No test pilots please. (204) 771-3092.
