Recent projects were a 1974 Z1 900 and a 1976 H*nda CB750 Four. Currently finishing up a 1975 Kawasaki H2 :-) I am here because i just acquired a 1985 GPz750 turbo project bike and plan to restore it to its former glory. Missing some parts so i may ask if someone can help but currently perusing ebay to see what's out there. I had a lot of bikes in my time, but my first 'real' motorcycle was a brand new 1984 GPz750 so i am very fond of these. Never had a turbo, but now i do! Current rider is a GPz1100 :-)

Hi my name is Lawrence I first brought my 750 Turbo in1986 from Ken Kay motorcycles Stopsley I had it for about 4 years before regrettably selling it on I constantly looked for it on various sites then a friend of mine sent me a link to a F B marketplace listing which was my bike which I swiftly contacted and purchased my old machine , its still in standard trim and mostly original but has a few issues which i'm hoping can be resolved on this site

Hello. Just bought my very 1st bike. A 1985 750 Turbo. Looking through old posts I can see it used to own to tupz. Needs a few small things like a battery and the rear brakes sorting out but hopefully won't take much to get it back on the road. Can't wait to ride it 😁
