Title: Was this yours until recently

Did anyone on here own this rd200 up until recently? I believe the previous owner had restored it.
A 76 model in the much rarer blue rather than orange and not registered until 78 on a T plate.

They always seem to be orange as I had in 77 but the brochure of the day shows a blue one too. Strangely the 125 of the same year had quite a choice of colours.

Is that the same blue Yamaha used on the 1978 autolube FS1E?
I agree with the comments above, blue is an unusual colour in the UK

I have never seen a Blue one either, but it should be Metallic Cosmic Blue (which is the same as the US Spec 200) and that looks like a solid blue
