     Up for sale is this beautifully restored and customized 1977 Yamaha RD400. This puppy was rebuilt from the ground up by Rusty Bolt Garage in Santa Fe. NM. A quick run through of the building process was upgrading the suspension. front and rear. an engine rebuild to stock specs. reworking the carbs and intake system. relocating the oil tank and wiring underneath the one of a kind fiberglass seat and tail section. powder coating the frame. swingarm. and other bits. new expansion chambers. all new controls and gauges. cross drilled rotors. new brake calipers and master cylinders fed by stainless steel lines. For a more detailed list of the build and additional photos please visit our blog here.   Since this bike was built to ride. it is street legal thanks to the LED turn signals. brake light. taillight. and headlight.  The bike has been test ridden about 30 miles since completion. She starts on the first or second kick every time and is a joy to ride. You wont see another one quite like this. That being said. this baby would be just as happy sitting in your collection as it would be screaming down the streets. Please find the video of start up and the bike running here. You also get two options as shown in the photos: the modern fairing/headlight combo and low rise bars or a round headlight and adjustable clubman bars if you would like a more traditional 'cafe racer' style . Let us know after the auction closes which you prefer and we will make the necessary changes prior to shipping.  She has been featured on many websites since completion including the very popular Pipeburn. com. and the Yamaha Motors USA page. This is your chance to own a one of a kind vintage motorcycle. **Some extras for the buyer include an extra set of keys. an extra set of spark plugs. some different jet sizes. an extra set of exhaust gaskets. a replacement bulb for the front turn signals (if you go with the headlight/fairing combo). the manual for the Koso gauge. decals. a set of brake pads with anti chatter shims. and a set of anti vibration bar end weights. *****Shipping and Payment-It is the responsibility of the buyer to arrange shipping. I am happy to help by giving you some names of the companies I like to use and would suggest that you use only enclosed transport. Payment in full will be due within 14 days of 'buy it now' or accepting your offer. Payment can be made by check. money order. cashiers check. or credit card. A credit card processing fee of %2 will apply if you want to go that way. After payment is received and cleared we will ship out the signed title. bill of sale. and the box of extras.     Now. Imagine the difference of a RD425!
