Selling my 1976 Yamaha RD400 2 stroke road/race build. I bought this earlier this summer but unfortunately I just don't have the time to maintain an old bike.
It was professionally built a few years ago from a shop in Michigan as a racer, so tach only, no speedo, odometer, turn signals, etc... It's got an Airtech fairing and a Vesco tail piece that's nicely upholstered and actually very comfortable. It's also got aftermarket exhausts, rearsets, clipons, and rear shocks. The paint is in very good shape, I planned on doing a Kenny Roberts- style build with it.
Mileage is obviously unknown, but neither I nor the previous owner have driven it more than a few miles each. Since its sat for an extended period though, it could use a tune up if you're going to ride it. It starts easily but has some trouble idling. There's no rust in the tank (or anywhere for that matter) and it's overall in incredible condition for a bike this old. The tires are vintage so I'd also recommend replacing them if you're going to ride it far. I have more pictures if you're interested in seeing anything else on it.
