Droptarotter your RZ looks incredible! I had a Kenny Roberts RZ in the late 80's with Toomey pipes and it is the only bike I truly regret ever selling - gonna find another good clean one someday....

Lomas pipes are artwork, there are other pipes to be found ( Toomey etc )
but you bike deserves the best !

Lomas pipes are made in Czech republic and can be ordered direct:

However this fellow imports them into the USA:

Thank you Burro, I will check out fastfromthepast.

That little RZ I got is incredible........it's completely stock......tool kit has never been removed from under the rubber band.......it still has the original grease on the chain........even has the stupid sticker on the windshield telling you what to clean it with.......and......and it even has the blue protective film under the windshield screws!!


Here's a story for you............in 1985, 3 buddies from California paid me a visit and bought 2 RZ500's and the other bought a GSXR750.
We stripped all the bikes.......mailed the motors separate from the frames to the US and all lived happily ever after!

Don't know what ever happened as I lost touch???

Thanks again!

I was really happy with how the little sound bites fitted in. I had a recording of my brothers moble phone ring tone and it got caught up with the broadford videos.

I just figured I'd stick the RD/RZ ones on here. They can be fairly repetative, but the people in them like them. Anyone else that likes them is just a bonus. Thanks.

Like a photo album or slide show - it could get very boring. If you really must see them, jump over to youtube.

Here is mine out for some glamor shots. Keen eyed ADVers may notice a few bits missing, first one to list all the missing parts wins... nothing. Satisfaction of being an RD/moto pro. I am pretty sure that the right side is complete.



This was a few years ago, the bike now has 10k miles and runs great. All stock except for Superbike bars and a SS front brake line.

Just missing some minor details like f.b. caliper, master, etc. Other than that looks great!

Yeah I should have worded it differently. There is nothing not in view of this pic that is missing. If that makes no sense then consider it contest fail!!

Partial credit to the first two contestants!

okay, finally finished this wee beastie enough to show it off. this one started out as an incredibly haggard old wreck of a bike:



but after dumping enough time and money down the drain, the old turd polished up pretty nice:

maybe there's an emoticon missing in there, maybe i'm feeling thin skinned.

it's getting ridden. these pics were taken the other day after i started it for the first time, and just before finishing up the last couple loose ends. felt like showing it off. it isn't intended as a garage queen, and after the next couple shakedown rides and jetting chops, it's gonna get ridden until the tires blister.
