WINNER! May 2011 2StrokeWorld Bike of the Month
« on: May 02, 2011, 09:27:12 AM »
1976 Yamaha RD400
owner: 76RD400
http://www.2strokeworld.com/forum/index.php?topic=10065.0

76RD400 is a new guy here, but his talent with 2 strokes shines in his gorgeous 1976 Yamaha RD400.  Starting with an awesome, though crusty, freebie, complete with DG heads, he has transformed it into a clean resto-mod that combines the best of old and new, such as an anodized aluminum 'gassed' swingarm and Geneva Green paint.  WELL done, '76!  A deserving Bike of the Month that took a masterful lead in the voting.

76RD400 will receive great prize from Economy Cycle: a discount code to use for any single purchase of anything except vehicles. Additionally, when he places any order with the discount code, Economy Cycle will also include his choice of a free carb cleaner kit by K&L or a Motion Pro ignition system tester!  John is a good friend to 2-strokers and our bikes, and Economy Cycle is a Parts Unlimited dealer and also carries helmets, apparel and accessories.  Thanks for all that you do, John!

Felicitations!!  The bike looks strangely new,or as if it were brand new, not an assembly of "old parts".
Never seen anything like it.

Good work, Dennis. A pretty build well executed. :!:

If it's stuck, force it.
If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.
