Yamaha RD400August 8, 2018
The only surviving photo of my RD400.
This was taken in 1992 in Daventry, Northants. I was visiting a mate, and you can just see a tiny bit of his silver Alfa Romeo in the left of the picture.
It was a 1979 model. Two-stroke, air cooled, six-speed. And in ‘Competition Yellow’.
A previous owner had removed the original exhaust pipes and fitted a pair from an RD LC
So this was my RD I owned in the 1990’s. I had it for about a year and a half then sold it for a few hundred pounds, as was its value at the time.
Today, Yamaha RD’s of all cc’s sell for thousands, search eBay, and brace yourself!
You can see more cars, motorbikes and scooters I’ve been lucky enough to own, here: Previous Machines
And I am always keen to hear about the interesting machines you have owned.
