Relisted again. This time it says it needs engine work. Yet he still wants $8500 for it.
And the mileage went from 17K to 11K  :umm:

He must be basing the price off the $600 side covers and $80 bent brake levers on ebay

He'd have better luck selling if he just shot it with grey primer

Seems he had the engine work done. However the price went up $3K to $11,500, and another 1K miles disappeared

Re: 1979 Yamaha RD400F Daytona Special, $10,750 - CL - Sherman Oaks, CA

Now it's in Sherman Oaks  :azn:  mileage dropped again from 10,050 to 10,000. And I guess because it has lower mileage now, the price has dropped accordingly from $11,500 to $10,750. Soon it will be one of those 1-mile Daytonas that used to pop up every few months about 8-10 yrs ago.

I like how he describes it as a "2STROK SURVIVOR" :dawg:  the definition of 'a survivor' must really have changed

And remember, it's a "SOLID INVESTMENT THAT CAN ONLY GO UP FROM HERE.  :bs:

Some people just can't resist free paint.

It's free because IT'S UGLY!

-$2k on the price for that reason. It's like a yellow Jeep.
