This month we are stoked about having a replica Suzuki TR750 in the window. We have been talking about putting this bike in the window for quite some time. The bike belongs to and was partially built by our racing sensei, Sensei Tim Voyer #840.
The TR750 started life as a standard Suzuki GT750 which was then entirely stripped. CMR from Trenton, Ontario manufactured the new frame from 4130 chrome-moly which is then TIG welded. The use of chrome-moly proves to be quiet useful as the entire frame and swing arm weigh a little over 26lbs.
The seat and tank are also manufactured by hand at CMR in Trenton. Inside the TIG welded 3003 aluminum gas tank, CMR welded baffles to the floor of the tank to prevent fuel slosh.
For the engine, competition Wiseco pistons and a close ratio gearbox have been selected to give this 750 2-stroke a little more 'get up and go'! While Mikuni VM38's take care of the fuel and air, and an Electrex self generating CDI race ignition provides the spark. Brembo calipers and master cylinders are called upon for braking duties while Racetech and Works Performance handle the front and rear suspension.
If you want to see this bike in action, then come out to one of the Vintage Road Racing Associations races in 2019. The club has lots of amazing bikes and great people piloting them. The entire schedule can be found at www.VRRA.ca. Also, if you would like to join in on the fun and come racing, come by the shop! We are happy to answer any questions you may have. It is easier than you think.
