Hi folks, I've just joined the club a few weeks back although I forgot that I'd signed up to the forum 5 years ago but never posted !
I've had a few RDs over the years, first one in 1976 a well used (abused !) Brigade Blue 250 that I kept for a year. Other bikes followed but I always had a soft spot for the RDs an in late 1983 I picked up an early Competition Green RD350. The previous owner had worked for Comerfords so the bike had been well looked after. I owned other bikes alongside the 350 during the following years and also picked up quite a few spares as well as a few NOS parts with the intention of building an early 250 to relive my youth. Needles to say, when I got married and started a family in the early 90s the bike stuff took a back seat and with the 350 having been sat in the garage for a few years Dave Higgins who I met through doing autojumbles managed to persuade me to sell it to him which made space to build up the 250. Life got in the way again and the build has been slow ! I'm getting there now with all cycle parts refurbed and back together, bottom end in ready for it's freshly rebored top end and engine covers to go on. Luckily I've NOS paintwork and silencers so hopefully this summer I''l be leaving a blue haze around the lanes of Surrey again !
Cheers Simon

Welcome to the Club and the Forum Simon
Any photos of the 350 or your rebuilt 250?
