    that is like $2700 USD, I don't know if I could rip that one apart...would make a great resto.
    Did you hear about the pirate with two wooden legs?

    They caught fire and burned his ass to the ground!

    Interesting cross over between the 350 and the 400. The 350 here only had spoked wheels, and the 400 got the cast wheels.

    Hey, you wouldn't happen to have a source for a rear RD350 wheel with a disk brake instead of a drum, would you? I've been casually looking for one for a while now.

    Ya sure you want to restore it? Looks great in the pics and keep in mind they are only original once.

    I agree, maybe in england the premium lies with restored but here in the states originality is king. something that nice you give her a quick detailing and do your best to keep it nice and original.
