Hi folks,

Greetings from England!

I've just bought my very first Kawasaki after 30 odd years of owning bikes so I thought I'd join up and see what happening.

Did they ever sell the GT750 in the US? I've been looking for spares but can not find any on fleabay, hence the question.

This is a link to the model I bought just in case it was sold by another name over in the colonies ;)

1989 Kawasaki GT 750 Shaft Drive on eBay, also, Kawasaki, Motorcycles Scooters, Cars, Parts Vehicles (end time 08-Dec-07 20:07:05 GMT)

Thanks in advance!

Looks very similar to the KZ750 model from here in the states.

Welcome RFdemon. :D

Welcome to the forum. We are getting more and more UK people - that is great. Sorry I can't help much with your new ride, but it really does look like a the KZ750 that was sold here in the US. What type bikes did you own before this?

Welcome to the forum. Can't say I recognize that bike though.

Thanks for the warm welcome and the information. I'll have a look for KZ750ST parts on ebay.com There's not a great deal of stuff for it this side of the pond, despite it being a popular model, as far as I can tell so this could be a useful mine of bits.

Ruger, I've had a variety of Jap stuff over the years. 2 stroke stuff from Yamaha RD250's to the Suzuki GT750 triple and 4 strokes from the mid 70's CB500/4 to Honda CB750's, Suzuki GS850's etc. I currently own a Suzuki GSX600F which is my long term project bike. It's currently stripped to its constituent parts with the subframe chopped off and awaiting rebuild.

I have just had a quick look on ebay.com and my GT could well be related to the KZ750/4 but more research is required. Very few parts there though :(

Some nice bikes there. I really wanted an RD250 when they came out. But I didn't see Triumph in the list:shock: I had an old TR6 based chopper back in the 60's. One of my favorite rides. Good luck with your projects and your new Kawa.

Yeah! No British Iron which is something I now regret. I almost bought a 1970 650 Bonneville in '75 but opted for the 500/4 instead. I loved the Honda but retrospectively, I wish I'd bought the Bonny. :frown:
