RD 350 100% original 1974

Been in storage for years, motor turns and everything original. Was planning on restoring it but due to injury I am not able to ride for a very long time so someone should be able to enjoy this possible beauty.

$1250 should be a fair TWTEX price

You should let the guru (if you are able to find him) of these old gems take a wack at resoring it for you. That way you’ll have all the time needed to admire it as it sits prestine in your living room.

Guru = Billy Wiese of WRW Racing located in Florence TX.

Billy is also the very guru who expertly & completely restored my 1982 YZ250J.

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Now that's a name I haven't heard since the mid 1970's. When I was racing MX back then I went to his familys shop on Jefferson Blvd in Oak Cliff (Big D Yamaha). Willie his dad owned the place, Billie wrenched and his brother Charlie raced 250 Int. I'm sure their dad is deceased by now but always wondered what happened to Billy and Charles.

Billy's still around. A few years ago, he built the engine that propelled Scott McDermott to a Bonneville Salt Flats speed record for 100cc two stroke in his class. Right at 100 MPH. They beat the record previously held by a Boing aeronautical engineer.
