This is a private sale for my Yamaha RD 350 LC. I am not a dealer or collector. I have owned this bike for 12 years and during that time I have sourced as many new old stock parts as I could find from various locations. plus the pick of the best parts coming in from Germany to restore it to the condition you see in the photos. The bike is a full UK spec machine. registered in my name with V5 and number plate. It is fitted with all genuine yamaha parts nothing pattern was ever used.  The restoration was largely complete in 2006 and for a few years following that I displayed it at a number of VJMC and other classic motorcycle shows in Northern Ireland. It won best Yamaha in 2008 at the VJMC show and since that due to young kids and family commitments the bikes lived in the dining room of my home. Since the bike was restored and engine rebuilt its never been started nor had fuel in the tank or 2 stroke oil in it although there is light gear oil in the gearbox clutch area. It was never my intention to use this bike it was built purely as a show bike. In saying that some fuel. 2 stroke. coolant and brake fluid and its good to go.  The bikes been indoors for 8 years so there is no corrosion and no smells or leaks of fuel and oil from it so would be ideally suited to a private indoor collection. If you are interested in a bike to ride around on this is probably not the bike for you unless you want to swap over new parts for used items. (I have a second bike 350LC nearly finished restoration which will be advertised for sale in the next few weeks on ebay as well)To list some of the new old stock parts - exhausts 350 with 0 stamped on inside of rear hangers. complete with new baffles. new bodywork except tank which was used and excellent condition. new mph speedo. new rev counter and clock covers without the japanese writing. new stator coils.
