1974 Yamaha RD350 Cafe Racer Project
Cracking Cafe Racer project – lovely lovely twin 2 stroke air cooled road bike
Have listed this bike before BUT the winning bidder strung me along and has never been to pick the bike up so it’s back up for sale.
I have been toying with the idea of finishing the bike but before I do it’s up for sale so you can grab it at this bargain price before i put a bit of time and extra bits on it and the price goes up.
I Have done a video walk around of this one which should highlight the good & bad bits of the bike – go to youtube and search “phoenix motos 1974 yamaha rd350” or copy & paste this link https://youtu.be/pcIPTYFVKuw
this is exactly as it arrived from California – I know a lot of you prefer it that you can see 1st hand the overall condition. I literally keep them as they are – unwashed just as they are
Someone has obviously done quite a bit of work to this & then they’ve obviously lost interest or maybe someone else has taken the project on and not quite done as good a job.
Thankfully the main bulk of the work is good & it’s really the finishing touches that need sorting so make an easy job to finish this off in the way that you would like.
was bought as a running bike and when i rolled it out of the container I wanted to fire it up but i discovered the kickstart was catching the footpeg so i have done a slight mod to enable you to remove the footpeg & lock it back in place once the bike is running and you are ready to ride it – see video for info
I have since ordered a new kickstart which should clear the footpegs – will install it before the sale to make sure it clears fine.
the bike runs sweet as a nut & rides nicely except in the mid to top end it feels to be running rich so will need a bit of work on the jetting.
There are good & bad bits of this bike & the video goes into much more detail so please watch it if you are seriously interested in the bike.
I think it looks better in person than on the pics so i’m sure you won’t be disappointed if you come to see it.
gears all work, brakes work great just needs cosmetics finishing off really
great 2 stroke Cafe Racer project – i love a 2 stroke!
I urge you to watch the youtube video as you’ll get a better flavour for the bike & be able to hear it run & see it being ridden https://youtu.be/pcIPTYFVKuw
Bike is being sold as seen in project condition – no warranty
I have applied to the DVLA to register it so that should be back shortly and will be sold fully registered
any questions please feel free to ask
as well as this bike I also have a lot of other bikes to sell- at time of writing this ad most are in a container on it’s way over to the UK & are available to pre order. If you are interested in this or another bike, take a look at my other ads & search google for phoenix motos – the bikes on the way over from California are available to see here http://phoenixmotos.com/bikes-in-transit-to-uk/ – please copy & paste this link.
the bikes are in various conditions – if any are of interest please message me through ebay & we can potentially work a deal out.
I can arrange delivery with a decent courier if you need – you pay the courier direct & just make sure i’ve been paid before he collects the bike for you
Classic bikes have seen huge increases in value over the past 10 years & they are set to continue. At present they offer significantly better return than money in the bank & can be enjoyed either just to look at or to actually use – you can’t do that with a bank statement!!
The pictures form part of the description. I advise you to come, view & examine the bikes which can be done in a covid secure manner. This bike is in storage so if you do want to come & look it needs to be pre arranged so i can go & get the bike.
Deposit of £250 to be received within 24hrs of agreeing to buy the bike. Final payment to be received in cash or bank transfer on collection within 7 days of commiting to buy.
