    RD400

    In my quest for owning vintage japanese bike I've acquired a 1977 RD400 that is currently not running. It's in really good shape physically but the heads have been removed, one jug is off and one piston is sticking out of the lower end. All of the parts came with it but I haven't had a chance to inspect anything closely. If anyone knows of a good place to start in getting her going please respond. I'll try to get some pics up so that you can see it for yourself shortly.

    Thanks
    Jay<img src=icon_smile_evil.gif border=0 align=middle>

    What exactly do you want to do to it?? We know alot of guys who race rd's. I gave all of my rd stuff away. Jay Phinizy has tons of rd parts and could probably tell you where to go for work. I can probably get you his email address sometime soon if you want it. Where are you located anyway? Coll bike to pick though. Ive been looking for an rd at the right price for a while.

    good luck and lets see some pics

    Cool, I would would really like any information that you could give me about local shops that tune these things. I'm in the Southern Maine area so any place in the ME, MA or NH areas would be great! My email address is [email protected] so you can give that out if you like. I'll definitely be posting pics soon.

    Jay,
    Are you doing the Honda or the RD? Stay focused man... You should make one a race bike and get go racing with us before you get to old.

    formula rd sounds like a good class. 350gp is getting way too crowded.


    just my 2 cents. plus it'll provide more high side pics for us!


    :-)

    I'm doing the Yamaha! The Honda(s)are being parted as we speak on Ebay. As for being too old to race I'll hopefully have time for that when I'm 50.
