Survivor 73 Yamaha RD350 8K miles
« on: Jun 08, 2019, 05:48:36 »
So I scored this sweet 1973 Yamaha RD350 for free, it's fully stock, only thing it needs is an ignition switch, headlight, oil cap and a couple turn signals to be complete best I can tell so far.

Took off the heads, pistons and cylinders are pristine, brake lines still have fluid in them but the cylinder was all caked up, turns over freely, has all the original wiring it seems even. Already got the ignition switch ordered, should be in next week.

It looks like this thing even has the original battery and brake pads

I'll post some pics soon

If it has not run in a few years, make sure you strip the motor and replace the crank oil seals. That's cheap and easy to do and much cheaper than the pistons melting from leaky seals.
