Yamaha Other description

Offered for sale is my very original and beautiful Yamaha RD350A.  I am the 4th owner having owned this bike for a little more than 2 years an driving it less than 20 miles.  The owner before me purchased this RD in 1990 with just 400 miles on the odometer.  I have the newspaper classified ad from that time confirming the low original miles.  I also have yearly California registrations back to 1981.  The true mileage is 518 miles!

The bike is in excellent condition and has never been restored.  Although it is a very nice unmolested example it is not 100% perfect.  There are some very superficial scratches here and there.  Some of the black engine and carb paint are flaking a bit.  There is a small seam tear in the rear of the seat (see picture).

The inside of the fuel tank is clean and without corrosion.  A gas tank sealant was applied by a prior owner.  There is no pealing or flaking of the sealant.  The outside of the tank is free from dents or paint scratches.  The purple paint and chrome shines bright.  There is no rust or corrosion on the fasteners.  The bike has been in a dry climate throughout its life.

Prior to this listing I did not wash or detail the bike.  I removed the bike cover and dusted it off for the pictures.  The pictures speak of its true condition.  I added some ethanol free fuel and it started on the second kick.   The bike should have basic maintenance/tuning before being put into use if so desired.

Included in the sale are three keys, factory service manual, owners manual, warranty book, mint original tool kit, clear MA title.

Shipping cost and arrangements are the buyers responsibility although I will be happy to help on my end with loading etc.  Zero feedback bidders need to contact me before bidding otherwise they will be removed.  Please email with questions.  Contact me to arrange an inspection if you like.  Thank you for looking.

Ben Spies talks MotoGP

Tue, 15 Jun 2010

TECH 3 Yamaha man Ben Spies gives a fairly in-depth interview about Mugello MotoGP, his championship hopes and his riding style with On The Throttle TV. The multiple AMA superbike champ, who's racing for the first time on many of the MotoGP tracks, reveals he spends most of Friday practice learning the circuit, while others are focusing on set-up and fast lap times. Spies fan or not, it's well worth a watch.

Our Magnificent seven

Wed, 16 Feb 2011

Remember to dust your Union Jacks down if you happen to be visiting any Grand Prix this year as we have no less than seven youngsters to cheer on in the junior Moto GP classes. I don’t think we’ve ever had this many ‘yoofs’ in the GP paddock so let’s hope they can do the business and bring an end to our long drought of Grand Prix titles. And that could be soon as Scott Redding is already a hot favourite for the 2011 Moto 2 championship on his Marc VDS Suter machine.
