Description 1979 Yamaha Daytona Special RD400

The time has come to part with my Daytona Special regretfully. I restored this bike about 7 years ago. I had the crank rebuilt and new Wiseco pistons for the top end. The frame/ brakes, brackets etc were all powder coated gloss black. Paint is the closest I could find to stock Daytona paint. I believe it's a Lexus color? Anything that could not be powder coated was hand painted in Satin black.

Some details not stock;

Red wing shocks, Braided lines for brakes, Turn signals painted satin black as the chrome had gone flaky, disc is drilled but I think I have a stock disc I can throw in, Many fasteners were replaced with stainless Allen heads.


Light scratch on rt side of tank but it doesn't show up in photos and I would likely have to point it out for someone to notice. A good cut and buffing would likely take it out.Crack on rt muffler just behind mount as seen in photo. Tig welding and replating would make this better than new. Light pitting on mufflers and headlight ring. The headlight ring is probably common to many Yamaha's of that era so easy fix and you cannot notice the pitting on the mufflers until your a foot away.  

38000 KM's or 24000 miles.

This is a Canadian bike with electronic ignition, it runs without a battery. Nice set up.Also none of the exhaust butterfly emission equipment the US bikes came with, IE easier to tune Bike rides nice and brakes well for a 37 year old bike. Since restoration I have maybe burned 1-2 tanks a year through it on sunny days.

I will ship world wide but YOU have to make ALL the arrangements and pay all costs involved.  I can crate the bike for 200$ and have it ready for pick up from MY residence.

250$ non refundable deposit within 12 hours of auction ending.

Bike is sold as is, no warranty expressed or impliedThe VIN # match on frame and engine.
