Had the itch for a smoker after building up 3 different Hondas to various levels. Decent ones are getting impossible to find on a budget so I ended up spending more than I really wanted to on a pretty decent one. Ran but pissed gas EVERYWHERE, should have only needed carb work and I was tired of looking so I bit.
It came with the stock tank, could of side covers, stock exhaust and a few other small odds and ends. A week after I picked this up, I found another RD350 for $400 that came with enough parts to build two bikes (except only one motor). Saw that RD350 jugs were going for $300 on ebay so I figured even If I parted it out it was work that. No title though. Been fighting with my DMV and finally got a nice older lady to do an override and get me a title on bill of sale and police inspection.
Everything on it is in great shape, I dont think there is one speck of shit on the rims, they look perfect. So, the original RD that i bought Im just going to return to stock and drive it around. This guy here is going to become my gem. Idea is a full fairing cafe bike, some basic motor/exhaust mods but I want to leave it a street bike.
Current plan is to have the bike modified, together, and running by barber. Then, over the winter take it apart and make it all pretty. Thats a pretty quick timeline for me, so we'll see how it works.
I have been REALLY bad at keeping up with build threads, but since this is my first RD, first time working with full fairings, first time working with fiberglass, i'll likely be taking lots of pics and asking for help and opinions on stuff to do. So, please keep an eye out.
