Suzuki GT750
« on: June 22, 2016, 11:17:16 AM »
Hi,
I was hoping for some advice.
My Dad recently passed away and has left a red GT750. It has only had 1 owner and has done 39000 miles.
It has been kept under cover and has been started at least once a year so I believe it will still run.

It's in pretty good nick, had seat cover and pipes replaced at some point.

I realise i dont have masses amount of information and for some reason i can't attach a photo (but can email if necessary).
Was hoping for a genuine estimate about how much you think it might be worth. It's really special to me but i have no choice but to sell as i can't use it. I don't want to be ripped off, it would be an insult to my Dad.


Any advice would be greatly appreciated,
Thanks.

I always find the best guide is to look at the completed listings on ebay:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/Suzuki/9808/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=suzuki%20gt750&LH_Complete=1&rt=nc&_trksid=p2045573.m1684

Prices here seem to vary between 2,000 and 4,000.

Call it a "barn find" and for some incalculable reason you'll get more for it......

It's worth is what someone will pay for it.

Once its sold on ebay,thats its price, and binding,after that you cannot change your mind.
It may well be a special bike to you, but to anyone else its an old bike.

Hard but so is life.

You could always keep it in the sitting room.

i used to own one of those bikes, the trouble with the triples is that the seals go hard and the engine can get smokey so they are a bit of a trial to keep running nicely but on the other hand they are much sort after, there is a kettle club, surely the best place for valuation/advice. i agree with ebay being a market value but if you were looking for a gt 750 that wouldn't necessarily be the place that you would go, it being a classic now.

sorry you lost your dad Wyle87. why not keep it, i would.

Funny thing about Japs is that they're only "classic" when they're show standard and original.  Show some rust, dirt and mods and they're just another old clunker no-one wants.

In good condition these bikes go for between 7 and 8K now, more if really nice.

Personally I don't really fancy a drum brake at the back again plus they are heavy and the weight is high, nevertheless beautiful machines and they sound lovely.
