RD400 under construction
« on: November 13, 2017, 02:52:38 PM »
Well, might as Well give it a try
I have a build thread on 2strokeworld but found This page, thought you might wanted to tag a long on yet another build thread  :)
Personale, i love to see other People's work/project build, so This is my contribution

For about 2 years so far i have been building/modding/ gathering parts as i came along


I bought a Rd400c frame With half a engine and some wasted parts. I learned the hard way, that even the front and rear wheel was not even a Yamaha rd, so i have gotten parts from US, UK and all over the world.
I have Never ride/build a Yamaha rd, but i had to save it  :D

Its been expensive and slowly, but Iam building it how i want it to be, guess good things take time :)


The pictures are some from the start, to This point.

Hope you like it ( so far)

Your images are too large for the Forum. You need to reduce them to below 200kb and size them at 800 x 600 pixels and they will fiit perfectly  :P :P

For example that last one you uploaded was (1975.61 kB and 3264 x 2448 pixels in size )
Just my 250 special left now !

All new seals, bushings, bearings, tube and tires!

Custom yoke, Yamaha logo, might have it black anodized?? Not sure

Cylinders needs to be honed

Hi greenhorn,
Nice job you have going on there and at least with the massive pictures I got a good look at your frame paint  ;)
What is the exact finish of your powder coating? I was going to do a satin black finish on my TZR frame and your frame looks just like what I was imagining.
Cheers,
