This very rare and much sought after 1st edition tax exempt Yamaha RD350 has recently been imported from North America where it has spent all its life ? the air is thin and the climate is far kinder to machinery than ours. This and the fact it's only showing 17709 miles and has been in dry storage for the last umpteen years have helped maintain its boyish good looks. PLEASE CHECKOUT THE PICTURES. If you can see past the paintwork & handlebars you'll recognise this is a cracker!!!. It is very nearly complete missing just the Mirrors. Ignition key. tank lock. horn button & ball end off the brake lever. The bike has obviously stood a while so the tyres are perished. BUT NOW FOR THE GOOD NEWS. The bike is every bit as nice as it looks here & is simply ripe for restoration. The wheels are straight with nice clean chrome rims. good hubs. brake plate. disc. caliper & working master cylinder. Forks & yokes look straight with good chrome. Mudguards are both solid & very tidy. Tail light assy is good as are the headlight & hangers. Instruments look great. Fuel tank. side panel. oil tank etc are ready for your paint guy to transform. Carburetors are free sliding off the twist grip. Exhaust system is original & solid. Seat is in very good condition throughout. Chain guard is tidy. Shox are damping fine. The engine is cosmetically very clean. it turns over nicely off the kick starter ? sounds/feels great & has compression but we haven't run it up.
