The time has come to sell my GPz750A3. Its a 1985 model on a B plate. First registered July 1985.
It is in original condition with the original firecracker red paint so has a nice patina. I have fitted some better side panels to it as the originals had worn through the paint. Fairing has a couple of small cracks. I have the bellypan and fairing side panels but havn't refitted them as I prefer it that way.
I purchased this bike in Feb 2015 after it had been stored away since 1999.
I stripped it down and rebuilt it and it MOT'd again in Sept 2016. There is a big folder full of receipts from the previous owner and I have added to this during the rebuild. Parts have come from CMSNL, Cradley Kawasaki, M&P, Zpower amonst others.
Bike was stripped down and the engine removed. I replaced the rear suspension pivot and linkage with good used parts from the states as the originals had seized up. Still has the original rear shock. Front forks have been rebuilt with new old stock Kawasaki fork tubes and I also fitted some new anti dive units I found on Ebay along with some new progressive fork springs. Brakes have been overhauled with new pistons and seals. It has also had a new set of Goodridge brake hoses front and rear. New brake pads have also been fitted. New chain and sprockets aswell.
Carbs have been rebuilt and fitted with new Keyster carb kits. New air filter, intake rubbers and rubber trumpets into the airbox. The engine was stripped down and cleaned. The cam chain has been replaced with a genuine Kawasaki chain. The tappet shims have been adjusted.

Exhaust is a genuine Harris 4 into 1 but I replaced the cone section as it had a small hole near to the end can. The cone section came from Norman Hydes. This was all re-chromed at Marque Restore in Coventry. It does have a new Norman Hyde baffle fitted.
All the tank LED's work and clocks aswell. New rear indicators fitted. It is also fitted with a GPz750 Turbo rear mudguard which I repaired as it had some cracks in it.
The tank has had a new fuel sender fitted.
I have fitted replacement wheels that were painted red instead of black. These were fitted with new Bridgestone BT45 tyres.
There are a few old style log books, MOT's from 1989-1999, owners handbook is under the seat and the original service record book is also with it. Also have an original sales brochure to go with it.
I do have the original rear mudguard, centre stand, rear grabrail with shelf on it and wheels are available by seperate negotiation. I fitted a grabrail without the shelf as I prefer the look of these. The engine is not the original and was replaced in 1997. There is a receipt for this work and the V5 shows the current engine number.
The toolkit is under the seat and it has an original battery cover fitted.

Bike is located in Northamptonshire about 20 mins from the M1/M6/A14 junction near Lutterworth.
Current mileage is 52905 miles. Mileage at MOT in 2016 after the rebuild was 52690. Adding an allowance to get to the MOT, the bike has done approx 240 miles in my ownership.
Bike will not be released until payment has been made in full and is in my bank account.
Any questions, please ask and I will do my best to answer.
