Very cool Suzuki Water Buffalo!
 
Wish I had play money! Is this a repaint?

It's really hard to believe the reported miles on that bike. Someone was really, really on top to the care and maintenance of that beauty :clap

Price is right, very clean.

Edited for the photo.

If it's a '75, that makes it an 'M' model. More HP and tucked in exhaust for better clearance. Pretty fast for the day and very durable. Like it! Love the slate-gray 1975 more-

I'd say that's a steal. Oh, why did I have to be born poor? :cry

:D

I had two GT750's: A drum brake 72 and a 75. The 75 may not have looked quite as weird Harold funky and it was faster, but it was also tall geared and peaky, it came on the pipe at 3500.

The 72 was much the nicer bike to ride except for brakes. It had power right from idle and would cruise easily at 2500 rpm in town in forth gear. In a top gear roll on the torquey 72 would suck the headlight out of the 'faster' 75.
