Description YAMAHA RD400 Period 5 Original Race Bike TZ350 Motor RZ TZ Drag GP RD350 Track

Up for sale is my beautiful RD400 Race bike. I loath to sell this, have put about 11 grand into it and many hours but the money will be put towards a TZ750 so I'm willing to let it go. 

Bike has had engine professionally rebuilt and is basically to TZ350 specs with 400 barrels. It has a TZ350 crank, TZ350 carburettors, TZ350 expansion chambers, TZ350 ignition, TZ350 throttle plus a couple of other small parts, tz350 close ratio gearbox was swapped out for rd400 one but is available. Barrels have also had a lot of port work done. Bike sounds amazing, was dynoed at 72hp before rebuild but I don't run it as lean now so it probably has around 65hp. Since rebuild and after break in period I have barely ridden it, just done a few parade laps at the Broadford bike bonanza, and around the block a few times (sshhh). 

With the exception of the number plate and 'redbull silencers' (which I put on as a joke when a track scrutineer complained it didn't have mufflers), Bike is period correct and aside from the rebuild is basically as it was back in the day so expect some 'patina'. The bike was modified in the early 80s and it was very competitive around Oran park and Amaroo before they closed. 

The side covers have been chrome plated, Also has aftermarket rear master cylinder, front and rear disc brakes, braided lines, custom alloy rearsets, Marzocchi Shocks, nos Tomaselli grips and brand new Metzeler tyres with only 3 laps on them. 

Bike is a joy to ride and has more than enough power, especially with the 1970s frame, suspension and brakes :)

As a side note, it will do a 10 second 1/4 mile if you have the cojones and a good rear tyre, and I will include with the bike a period drag swingarm with solid rear suspension. I will also include a race stand and a kick starter as at the moment its bump start only. 

Has sat for a few months with crappy modern fuel so may need carbs cleaned. 

Please do not bid unless you are fully capable of paying for and picking up within 10 days, I will only accept cash, bank deposit or bank transfer as payment, if you have low feedback, please send me a message before or when you make a bid or it will be cancelled.

Bike will be sold without the number plate and on condition that if you ever sell it, let me know so I can buy it back :)

I'm happy to help organise transport as well as help lift and move it upon pickup, I can also arrange cheap delivery to metro Sydney.  Let me know if you have questions or want to make a deal.

P.S If you win the auction, give Trevor at surfside motorcycle garage in brookvale a call, he said he could get it road registered without to much hassle :)
