Stunning bike with all the best features of a traditional cafe racer

This is a beautiful RD 250 cafe racer. The rebuild has just been finished. Nice pearlescent red paint. New shocks. New exhaust system. New headlight. Custom gauges.  New seat. Fender eliminator with LED rear light.Custom cafe bars and grips.  Runs with premix since the Autolube was not reliable. Has original 1974 engine with all that entails (the carbs have been rebuilt though). It starts, runs, and shifts (and burbles like a 2 stroke!). Starts in 2-3 kicks. I am not mechanically inclined but I will do my best to answer any questions you have.  Clear Wisconsin title in my name. Bike is sold AS IS and WHERE IS. If you wish the bike shipped, I would suggest uShip and I will do my best to accommodate (but I cannot help load). 
I have done my best to take photos from all angles but if you would like specifics please let me know. I have a video of the bike running I will try and post. 
If you use the Buy It Now, I will pay the shipping anywhere in the lower 48 states. 

$500 deposit must be paid immediately and is non refundable.

I reserve the right to cancel the auction if the bike sells locally.

Motorcycle Live and a few of my favourite things for 2013

Tue, 27 Nov 2012 00:00:00 -0800

There is lots of shiny new metal on show at Motorcyclelive this year but for me it’s the new Triumph Daytona 675 that steals the show.  We’ve been starved of brand new models in the Supersports segment for years but for me the latest Trumpet has made the wait worthwhile. And if its performance matches its looks then I reckon the 2013 bike of the year is a foregone conclusion.  The sleek curvy nose contrasts perfectly with the more pointy angular rear end and new side mounted silencer. It is lighter, more powerful and revs harder with much work on on mass centralisation to further improve handling.  Few of us have a whole lot of spare cash these days but £8899 for the standard model seems a fair price for such an awesome bike. That said I’d have to consider selling the granny and granddad to find the extra £1700 for the 675R.  Available early next year, and surely the perfect all round track day tool, this beauty comes with upgraded suspension, brakes, ABS, a quickshifter and some nice carbon detailing. The white 675R on display at the show looked even better in the flesh than previous images I’d seen so be careful or you might find yourself handing over a deposit. With no money left from the Triumph stand you’ll need your six special numbers to come up for my second favourite show item the AGV Pista GP Project 46. Although road legal this extremely light, full carbon helmet is designed especially for racing with a huge field of vision, extensive ventilation and superb ergonomics. It also comes with earplugs which suggests there may be some compromise in the noise department but it is still an incredible piece of engineering. At £799, this special Pista is also an incredible price but there will only be one hundred available and Raceways Yamaha reckon they are going fast.
