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.
Sorry about that , I just saw the whiskers on the tires and perfect paint on the headpipes. Nice bike though. Who's chambers?

no worries. believe me, i am itching to get the tires all nice and messy. the pipes better stay looking good for a while, since they are ceramic coated...

speaking of, those are moto-carrera millenium pipes. bike started life as a 75 350; i got it in the "before" condition above. motor has a 400 gearbox in it but was otherwise pretty haggard. new clutch, new main bearings, new crank seals, new seals throughout the rest. scott clough balanced the crank, lightly ported the cylinders, and machined the squish bands. pro-x pistons, bore is .50 over. chinoy electronic ignition, kept the stock 28mm carbs and reeds and rejetted. got the timing dialed the other day, and the bottom of the throttle jetting. tomorrow will be the day of many plug chops as we try to hone in on final needle and main jetting.

for now, even with the jetting fat and the timing initially way too retarded, it still hit like a sledgehammer around 6500. pulled hard wheelies in 1st and 2nd, got light in 3rd. not bad for being way out of tune. looking forward to tomorrow!

That's what a 17 year old's dreams were made of.

34 years have passed. I still have that dream.

Here's my RD350. I love this bike! Too bad I have to sell it. Check it out in the Old's Cool Flea Market.
