what are you asking for the "rest" of the bike now?


There is the right way, the wrong way and the british way to do anything!

Thanks, but I was just looking to break even. From what I recall, it was close. The pipes? yeah.... I should've put a higher reserve on those. Oh well.

I'll be selling more stuff. I considering selling ALL my RD350 stuff and keeping the TZ350, RS50, and building a YCS1. I have a TON of RD350 parts, and I do mean a ton, that I've collected over the years.

I added up what it would cost to build a wheel like this and I think it was a fair deal. The drums go for $125-200 all the time. The relined shoes from VB are what they are ($250). The Excel rim is about $100. The tire (is that a race compound tire or street?) is probably $40 minimum. Hell if the spokes were stainless, you would have lost money... I shudder to think what a wheel like this would have cost with Buchannan's doing the labor!

Now I have an 18" drum wheel that meets the USCRA rules for 500GP for my T500. All I have to do is swap out the disc front wheel for the drum wheel and I'm set....

Once spring rolls around again, I'll put the GT750 drum I was going to build into a wheel on ebay and get a little of that $515 back....

That's an Avon race tire. $120.
Rims are not $100. Go price them.
Spokes are extra. Can't use the stock spokes since they're for a 19" rim.

The buyer got a great deal.
