1982 Yamaha RD350 LC from United Kingdom


Throttle cable snapped.

General Comments:

Lightning!! The first superbike giant killer... A 2 stroke master piece... Rare now and probably worth a king's ransom.

Monster power band... Nothing at all and then... Whoooosh. Huge fun to ride and a proper boy killer. Light as a feather with skinny tyres and very stealable... The fun we had on that morsel of marvelousness. It was very thirsty though.

My friends and I all loved it and hated it at the same time... It was a furious terrier that snapped at the heals of much bigger dogs such as Z1s CB900s and GS1000s.

Great bike and likely a rare and expensive classic these days.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
