I like Super Dels earlier idea for the paint scheme, a paint pictorial of the RD range , would look great if done well, with competition yellow featuring naturally, it is a Yamaha.

I cant offer parts or services to the club bike cause but happy to chip in the folding stuff for running expenses etc, if someone can advise on how best to get the money to right man ?

There is still a project X fund running and donations can be paid into the clubs paypal account.

The address is payments@aircooledrdclub.co.uk

Rememer, this is a club bike so if anyone has an idea for the bike dont be shy, just do it.
I wanted the 350CC conversion so with the help of others on here I did it.
If you want a double front brake disc or paint job etc then say and we will try to sort it.
Im sure we would all help out but just having the idea is not enough, we also need labour and parts.

For this years 350cc conversion I bought the parts at Stafford, got a good deal from Norbo for the rebore and new parts, asked members for other parts I needed and roped RDnuts into helping me do the work and its all been completed over this winter.

Then when it was finished I claimed the money back from the project X funding account.

Cheer's I would be more than happy for a stint.

 I think having the club bike is a great idea for show casing what we are about.

forget the paint job, the currenet one is fine ( I've always loved it ;) )

what it's crying out for is twin discs, we've already got the wheel! :D

And stiffer forks! Bit of heavy weight oil and a little spacer should do the trick.
Enjoy riding it Ian  :)
