Newbie from AZ
« on: February 19, 2018, 03:45:22 PM »
Hi all,

I just joined, I live in Arizona USA. Looks like this club is based overseas from me.
I assume I'm welcome, since I was accepted lol...

I have a '76 RD400, my first 2-stroke street machine. Just finished having the top end bored and re-done, and the rest of the engine gone through. Runs like a bat out of hell now.

I'm looking for a fuel tank with no dents, if anyone has one.

More later....
Keep the shiny side up

Hello
welcome from UK. You will receive a warm welcome from the members on here. If you are a full member you will be able to look at the classified section to see about a tank.
Best wishes

Welcome to the Forum
We have members from all around the world, including some who are resident in the USA :)
Your bike certainly looks a cracker :)
I think you will find parts easier to get and cheaper (and in better condition) than what we can get from the UK :(
I hope you enjoy your RD

Welcome to the dark side ;) ;)
Love the bike especially the rack. Any chance of better pictures of the rack and where you obtained it, Please.
