right now I have a modified (of course...) jawa 350 again, the newer version. (hell knows why I did not buy the older one... )

I kept the fuel tank...

Nowdays I started to be interested in those beautiful 70-ies trial and crossbikes... simplicity, light, powerful. Would be ideal tool to enjoy the ride to work in the town! :)
Oh lookie, an old side hack! Charlie T. to the white courtesy phone!!!

My 1976 Suzuki GT500 Titan.
I posted this photo here in October 2010. This photo is from the day I picked up the bike. And I thought I'd update things. The bike is on the road, (well it was last season and will be again as soon as spring arrives). I logged almost 3000 miles in 2011. No troubles and the bike works well.
Mechanically, I refurbed everything that needed attention; it's a long list. Cosmetically I cleaned things up. But no paint other than touching up the frame. I found some period bags that I use when needed. I really enjoy riding this bike.
Here's a couple of pic's from last riding season.

I wonder where this goes..

Terrific looking ride relic! You've done a great job. I like your thoughts on not repainting it. They just seem to look so much better original with some patina (sp?) And those bags... I'd ride it as much as you do.
Love the look of that chainguard too! Never saw one that long. Almost looks like another pipe!

Up on Ortega Highway this weekend at the Look out. Very cool.

If a physical fact can produce a psychological state, a psychological state can produce a physical fact... The whole of creation is asleep within the deep of man and is awakened to objective existence by his subconscious assumptions.

Hello all ..

Long time lurker, first time poster. Lots of nice 2-strokes here for sure.

Thought I'd throw my bike into the ring for your consideration.

Hey, that is some great looking RD. You really did a top notch job on it!

Ticks all the boxes, alloy rims, chambers, rear sets, polished cases and classic bump saddle. And I must say, for riding, I too favor the superbike style low bars over clip ons!

I had a '73 RD 350 in the mid 70's. Spent the winter turning it into a Kenny Roberts special, mine had rearsets and chambers too. Even had the yellow / black paint job (and the clipons). A friend even gave me a used set of road race slicks for it (not a good idea). It was ready to go but it would be a couple of months before I would be 16 and old enough to get my license.

Well a couple of months was a long time back then! So still 15, I one day decided to ride it to school after my dad went to work, who would know? It was damp that morning, and with slicks, you guessed it, I laid it down... right in the sweeping left hander that led into the school parking lot!

And not too far in front of a school bus! Just missed the guard rail too!

I bounced pretty good back then and was left unhurt. I hopped up, quickly gathered up all the pieces and rode it back home. Then I cut school so I could put it back into a reasonable state before my father got home. I was really sweating!

Of course I couldn't fix all the damage so I told dad I knocked it off the side stand while working in the garage.

Haha, he gave me a big pass on that one!

Thanks for posting. Long live the RD!

Daaang! Sweet bike. Looks a lot like the one I sold last year I like the subtle redo with the tail light.
