Man, you got a smokin' deal. I sold my '72 Buffalo a few years ago for $400 (including delivery approx. 120 miles) and it wasn't in as good of shape as that one. The motor on mine was froze and it had some corrosion in places. Good deal

If crankshaft seals are needed, you might have a deal.

Don't even think about taking that sissy bar off! It reminds me of the sissy bars and massive luggage racks on my first 2 street bikes. Carrying a 48 qt. cooler was no problem. Or the milk crate lifted from the local supermarket. Oh, the memories! Nothing like watching a big street bike wheelie down the road with a haze behind it.

I had a 74. Must have gotten a lemon - by far the most probelmatic motorcycle I've owned. Ignition issues, carb issues, porous crankcase issues, exhuast baffle issues, detonation issues,, etc. Bought a 75 CB750F and never looked back.

What a beauty. As nice as just about any vintage European iron I've seen on these pages.

Dig that fuel gauge on the filler cap. And the chrome chambers.

While we were leaving the show, another one came in on a pick-up truck. It had a metalflake grey/silver paintjob. I wanted to turn around and check it out, but the parking was brutal.

Found the pic, I race one in production class back in the late 70s, Ron Grant motor, it was wicked fast, and wabble just a little bit in turn one (the drag strip at the time) as Sears Point.

Help!

I came across this thread unexpectedly and thought I'd ask if any one out there might know of cables that I could purchase for my Water Buffalo, I have two of the purple and white '72s with drum brakes and slide carbs instead of C-Vs.

If they are not available from Suzuki(or too pricey), many bike shops can custom make them. Look for larger independents.

Check ebay, seems to cable sets there frequently.

I would like to have found a '72 because of the drum brakes. I have a attraction to drum brake machines.

She gets 20 years of barn dust cleaned off, then the tear-down can begin. Still thinking about cutting it up to make a unique cafe'racer
