Hi all.
Just joined up to see what this forum is like before becoming a paid up member.
I had a 1976 orange RD200C in 1977 and have spent quite a while now trying to find a good one to buy, or any one for that matter.
Im hoping that this forum and club will be invaluable if I ever manage to track one down.

Dick Turpin pub,A127  SS12 9HZ.  On Tuesday evenings start mid march (dependent on weather.)
It would be good to meet up with some other 2 stroke addicts,so lets get some evenings sorted.
I also have a large list of things to do this summer covering alot of weekend days regarding the bikes .If anyone was interested i could put it up for people to pick and choose. ;)

Sounds good to me.
Keep me informed. Might not have the RD yet but always got the KH to fall back on for my two stroke fix.

Well I didnt manage to track down a 1976 RD200 but in the meantime I have just bought myself a 1976 RD125.
French import 13000km in pretty much untouched original condition. Only thing I can see wrong so far is at some point the painted front mudguard has been changed for a chrome one.
So Im on the look out for one and maybe an mph speedo if I see a good one.
A few jobs to do before I can get it on the road. Master cylinder needs a rebuild and the carb rubbers look a little perished although I dont think they are leaking. Oh and some proper clamps for the carb rubbers.
Paid up member now so looking forward to getting it mot ready so I can register it.
