Suzuki to restore original GSX-R750 at NEC bike show

GSX-R750 slab-side to be stripped and rebuilt at Motorcycle Live

SUZUKI will strip-down and rebuild an original 1980s slab-side GSX-R750 as an attraction on its stand at the NEC bike show in November.

The bike will be restored with new parts over the course of Motorcycle Live, which runs from November 28 to December 6 at Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre.

Tim Davies, Suzuki GB's Aftersales Marketing Co-ordinator for parts, said: ‘I really don't think there's a bigger icon in motorcycling than the original GSX-R750. It's responsible for 30 years of sportsbikes as we know them today and also the popularity of the GSX-R brand. With plenty of celebrations planned around the anniversary at Motorcycle Live, we're really looking forward to the project and hope that everyone that comes to the show is just as excited as we are to see it come together.’

The firm is also offering three GSX-R owners the chance to display their bike on its stand to help mark the 30th anniversary of the Gixer range.
