What about wheelies? They kinda are not an option.

That's awesome

A guy around the corner from me has a real nice RD350, I love to hear him rip down the street.

I figure around 300 ish. Probably low to mid 60's. My old race bike had 63hp and weighed 255 wet (rd400), and this is pretty close in feel only without the hit( adjustable power valves).
ETA: But with the more modern suspension it is a dream, but the RD's aren't bad.

That has to be a wild ride then. My banshee weighs 350ish and makes 85hp on C16. I will probably get a cheetah motor soon.

I got an erection just looking at it. the 80s when motorcycles were motorcycles and harley was on the ropes. the golden era.

I had a RD 350 and a GT 550 RamAir.

Forgot all about them when I got a brand new Interceptor 500.
Then I met a man with a Canadian spec RZ 500.

The trade off is piston life. My rd428's had a piston life of about 2 hours. Fine for a race bike. I want to ride this all summer and do teardowns in the winter.  Back in 2005-6 ish  Vito's built a badass banshee for Baja, I built a trx250r for some friends...  The banshee smoked their ass for the first 30 miles. My buddies never even changed a spark plug. Guess who won

Naw, this is a 500.

Very nice, Kenny Roberts Replica has always been one of the bikes I've wanted. I've had a couple of RD350s and RD400s. Very fun little bikes.

My brother had one back when they were new, as I recall(i was about 12) , he put a Daytona kit on it. he smoked built harleys all the time. never seen anybody get so mad at their bikes

I had a built Banshee ( Vito's) for a while, and EGT gauge fixed all the melted pistons problems. Amazing power, only place I could hookup was in the sand.

Nice. I had two RZ350s back in 84-85. Great fun, as was my RZ500 I owned a bit later. As you can tell from my handle I like me some Yamaha 2T. I think I've owned 12 or so Yamaha two-strokes. My best memories were made with my TZ250.

Toomey Pipes?



Too bad you don't have the seat cowl.




Here's my '83 GpZ 550 and my '85 RZ350.









And the RZ 350 with the cowl on it (and the Lawson Replica Bell M2 helmet).

I had an old GT 185 and I would wring its neck. No baffles in the pipes which were off of a 2 stroke 250 cc Yamaha.  Loud. Af.

Damn that's beautiful! I wish I hadn't sold mine, also wish I could've brought my NSR back stateside..
Link Posted: 6/9/2015 7:02:23 PM EDT
Thanks again guys. It doesn't look that much different from a stock one, on purpose but there's a ton of work there.
The front fairing was a Spinner off of a King air  I fitted all the suspension components myself and had to make the rear dogbones from scratch to get the ride height.
