Hello All. I have joined the Club as well as the forum so looking forward to lots of RD related shenanigans from now on. I imported a 1974 RD350A from the US early last year. It was a runner when I bought it but, apart from running for about 30 seconds when I tried to start it recently, it now won’t fire up. I am a hopeless mechanic I’m afraid but hope to have more time on my hands to learn later this year.

Nice though it is to have an RD to play with it has made me realise that what I really want is my old bike back! I have posted in the ‘Have you seen my RD?’ forum so here’s hoping it turns up! It is currently SORN according to DVLA. Reg is MPH 356P it’s a silver RD350B which I bought brand new from Motorcycle City in Farnborough in 1976. Does anyone know where it is? Thanks, Chris

Welcome to the club and forum Chris, it is good to have you on board.

You will find heaps of friendly helpful folks on here, so be sure to ask any questions that you may have.

Also check out the various threads on hot topics and skills, as there is a mine of information there too and with a bit of assistance you will hopefully have your bike running well.

2 strokes are all I need!

Hi Peter. Thanks for the suggestion and advice via FB. I'm looking forward to getting stuck in to my RD project and keeping my fingers crossed that my old bike will turn up somewhere.
