1979RD400F
« on: August 01, 2022, 05:19:08 PM »
I was on this site when it originated with this ole girl. I've had her (yes, it's in its original frame again so...technically it's the same bike I've had 30 + years) forever in one form or another. She is currently under the knife once again. Hopefully to be properly dialed in. Not a show queen, a rider. Love this bike!

Trying to work a deal to get this from my son's best friend. Only fair since I was the one that told him to buy it. He wants something faster.

My 4 stroke blasphemy 1988 FZR400/600 is in the foreground of that last pic. Wanted FZR 400 since 1988 so had to buy that. Fun bike.

Yep. The trans shaft threads disappeared last October when it spit the front sprocket nut off. Tearing the engine down to swap that tranmission assembly is NOT something I'll have time for anytime soon. So...bought a used engine for it this morning. Hopefully back together Friday if the planets align properly.  Took about 4 hours to get to the point  shown in pic. I wish I had a proper garage to support my addiction.  :sad:
