Yamaha RD description

Up for auction is my running 1974 Yamaha RD350.   This bike is in decent condition, and will make for a great project bike to make as a nice rider.  Looks to be original.  I have a clear Michigan Title that is NOT in my name, in case that matters. Engine has lots of compression, and makes no funny noises.  Doesn't leak or drip any oil.  Transmission and clutch work perfectly.  Has a nice hard hitting powerband and easily carries the front wheel in 1st and 2nd gear, which makes for alot of fun.  I would recommend cleaning the carbs to get it running perfectly as its a bit sluggish down low.  However it does idle and pull away easily, just could run a little nicer in the low rpms. Has a new battery.  The original paint is decent for a rider.  Has several scratches and small dings here and there on the tank, and the side panel paint is ok.  Inside of tank is nice and won't require any coating. 

Tires are shot, and the spokes are rusty front and rear.  Chrome has some rust and pitting, but would look decent with some work.  Front brake master cylinder is seized and dry.  So the front brake system will need to be gone through.  Speedometer glass is missing, seat has some tape, and seat latch needs adjusted.  Rear lights work, headlight only works on high.  turn signals inop, probably needs a flasher and bulbs. One turn signal lense is missing.  All handlebar switches work.  Airbox is missing.

Please see my other auctions for RD parts and an RD parts bike which has several usefull items on it that could be transferred to this bike.

Buyer to pay for shipping and payment by cash upon pickup.  Or if you are having it shipped then payment by money order or cashiers check only.  Once the check clears then it can be shipped or picked up.   Has to be picked up at my house.
