    The beginnings of a 1975 Suzuki TR750

    Have just started collecting the bits to build a replica TR750. The frame is chrome moly and replicates the Suzuki works 1975 model with the lay down rear shocks. Have given myself two years to complete it, will not be an exact replica as can't afford the dry clutch. Just want to construct a period looking bike so will stick with the 19" front and 18" rear narrow tyres. Plan on track daying it and perhaps vintage racing it so track only.

    Will update this post from time to time. Interested in all your comments and suggestions.

    Little update. Have changed the wheels, got a K75 front end on it, making up fairing mounting brackets. Would like to have a complete roller by the end of the year.

    Interested in your comments and suggestions.

    Tunneruk, this is not much of a build thread as it will take another year and a half to finish as it's a side project. When it's ready for paint would like you to be the painter please. This is the bike I wont to replicate at least in appearance.

    Had a gt750 cafe racer in the 80's , motor was tuned to tr750 spec and totally unsuitable for road use (it was originally in a sidecar outfit) and appeared to be petrol cooled rather than water cooled.

    Made a lovely noise though.

    Take it that you have gone for a 18" front wheel as per original

    Neil, yes 18" front wheel . This bike will be for track use only so the motor will be tuned for that application. Will not go dry clutch but rather spend the money on ignition, motor and perhaps 6 speed gearbox as I've been able to source a supplier for the gear sets.
