Yamaha Other description

BUYER MUST PICK UP" WILL NOT SHIP.  1976 Yamaha RD 400, daily rider condition, starts and runs good, everything works. Two original keys work ignition, gas cap, helmet and seat lock. Unmolested engine adult driven with 27,355 miles at this writing, more being added. Oil injected works perfectly and kept adjusted to factory spec. Good Avon tires, D&D HD Chain, seat recovered locally. Gas tank in good condition inside and out but like the rest of the bike, not perfect. Decals and chrome in poor condition, mostly due to battery acid stripping the chrome off. . Some rust. Bike could be restored with new chrome and some new paint, but it still has old bike syndrome......it leaks oil. I check the engine case frequently and keep the level up but this giant killer likes to mark its territory. There are some dents in the front fender, hard to show in pictures. Included with the bike is a matching fairing less windshield. Never been on the bike, never got around to finding a new shield. I don't know who made the fairing but its a match for the bike. Also included is a factory repair manual, owners manual, tool kit,  couple magazines from the day and a brand new never out of the bag size large RD400 T-shirt and clear title. I never put the new decals on because apparently that can't be done withut repainting the tank. Yamaha sprayed clear coat over the decals, so I have been told they could not be removed with damaging the paint. 

These 40 year old bikes out handle a lot of new stuff on the market and give a soft smooth comfortable ride. The 400 has rubber mounting, lower RPM (6 Seed), isolated muffler and a larger gas tank than the 350's.  was aimed at those who didn't like the noise and shorter range of the 350's.

Buyer must pick up bike in Wisconsin, 50 miles NE from St. Paul, MN. I will not ship.
