Considering selling my GPZ 750 turbo. Has sat in the garage since my high school days in the mid to late 90’s. My nephew got it out and cleaned it up and got it running again. Can’t find many on the internet to compare it to for pricing and ran across this site. It has 31,000 miles and needs a speedometer cable, has some slight damage but is in overall great shape for its age. What is a reasonable asking price? Anyone on here interested in buying?

Cthomas, I search the internet regularly with regard to GPz 750 bikes, prices, parts, etc. I see way more GPz turbos for sale than straight up GPz 750s. And they command a fairly high price, easily 3 times a regular 750. Not so for a straight up 750, nobody wants them. In my case I'm not even interested in the turbo, too complex, difficult to maintain, etc. The extra power is not worth the extra cost to me. Nevertheless, the turbo version seems to attract much attention. Everyone wants 'more power'. Best o luck selling it.

They are fetching £7-£13k sterling so $10-$15k over here in the uk which is 50% higher than last year so they’re definitely on the rise.

They were the best of the turbo bikes of the era and are the most popular.

A running bike in decent condition should fetch decent money; from the photos, yours looks very clean.

If it were in the UK, I’d definitely be interested in it.

I personally have two turbos her in Australia, they are a rare bike which are increasing in value all the time.
A tidy example here is AU $10k plus. Have seen one sold for AU$20K.
Charlie Brown at Evergreen Turbo's is the master and does a fantastic job of looking after the turbines.
They had a limited production run, compared to the normal units.
Some guess at 6000 world wide.
Australia got very few numbers compared to the rest of the market.
As davidr1963 indicated, if it were in Australia, it would go in an instant.

Great looking example, need to get it on the road and ride it.
Once you feel the boost come in, the unit spooling up and the adrenaline rush, you may think again.
They are set at 7 psi but there is a race mode which goes beyond that.
Have a steering damper on mine, settles things down a bit.

Yes, interested, always. But maybe it'd be a good idea to... I dunno, put where the heck the bike is located and maybe, just maybe the title status? Thanks.

Back in the day I heard the 750 turbo would kill those who didn't respect it or were incompetent because of the light switch power band and tire/suspension technology of the time (much like a Porsche 911 turbo). Something about standing up in mid-corner and running off the apex.

The superbikes of that era were beautiful and you wrapped yourself around the tank and engine with the handlebars and fairing forward. I just don't like the butt up monkey mating with a football ergonomics in today's bikes.
