Shame the OP missed out on the bike.
The aircooled RDs were and are magic.
I did my first production racing on RD350s - won my first road race etc - and in total had 5 of them.
NZ rules required the footrest brackets to remain standard. As you can see, I used mine to corner on - when I wasn't using other bikes as berms. (This pic is actually post-classic racing, but it was an original racebike of mine that I just dragged out of the shed 20+ years after the day.)
Still have an RD400. Oh, yessss.
Honda XL1000V, Suzuki DR650, Adventure Royal Enfield, OSSA Explorer, first model XL250, 11 other offroad, road, and roadrace bikes
