Nice, I used to have two RD350s. Maybe no one here is interested because its not an R1. LOL What is the deal with the expansion chamber? It looks custom made. Also no offence but a bike as cool as that one deserves some better paint.

Hmmm let's see, 328 lbs gassed, better than 100 rear wheel horsepower..........Yeah it's fun! The handling is better than a stock 500 also.

The black paint has to be seen in the flesh to be appreciated, it is very well done by perfections here in Victoria. The wheels are powdercoated the same color as the 6-piston calipers, except they are glossy.

That's a sweet looking bike Grok, pardon by ignorance but what did it start life as and what was it's weight and power pre-stripping?

Repeal helmet laws, they only protect people we most likely don't need in the gene pool any way!

Thumbs up Great bike!

Hi Grok,
It looks great, what else can I say!
Great looks and a great playbike.
You re also right about this forum being rather dead...I think the fact that I wasn't posting lately was a factor. My holidays end next weekend and I hope to create some movement here
