For Sale - 1983 GPZ 750
As much as I hate to do it, I need to sell my GPZ 750 - First, some details -
Its a 1983 GPZ 750 with 18,xxx miles.
Since I picked it up I have
-Rebuilt the carbs/replaced the intake boots/replaced the air filter, rebuilt the forks and replaced the springs, replaced the tires , replaced the battery wit hthe correct one so that the battery warning light operated, pleaced all the turn signals to the correct ones, gave it a cleaning like it hadnt had in years.Cosmetically, the bike is on pretty good shape, it has some of the infamouse side pannel fading, but, I have seen much worse. The tank has a few minor chips ,but,nothing deep enough to allow for ruset, the inside of the take was good before I got it, but, I went ahead and cremed it for prevention.It has an aftermarket windshiled in med. smoke with aluminum fastners ( I have the OE bolts to put in it, but, was wiating till I got a clear shield ).
- So, what does it need - I havent replaced the chain yet, simply because i wanted to keep it OE stock and have had a time finding a correct chain.I need ot have the shock re-built, it still works fine, Im just a very picky person when it comes to suspnsion stuff.
- It comes with an extra oil change, Oe service manual, new engine side covers ( the ones on it have some minor scratches, but not that bad ), new engine badging plates , and a few other misc bit and pieces.
So why am I selling it ?- I really,really dont want to but (my first real sport type bike was a 1985 GPZ 750 - I have such fond memories of it , I thought I could relive those days with this bike , and I did - plus its cool, in 1983 Wayne Rainey won a bunch of raced on one of these, defeating the might Honda Interceptor in 1985 ! ) , I have found a bike that would be most killer to race in a vintage class, plus its a really low production number of a very limited run and the Mrs. says I need ot thin out the herd before I add another one. I know this is worth less sans pictures , so, I wil lget som freash ones posted this weekend. But, if your intrested before then, Ill email you some .
Im asking $2,000, but , for the right person who will appericate it for what it is, I am willing to deal a bit.
