    RD400g 1980

    Bike has undergone a serious overhaul , fresh paint and graphics . New motor ,crank fully rebuilt with new rods , big end bearings mains , lab seal , new rebore ( 1.5mm over and there are a pair of 2r9 cylinders and pistons fresh bored to 1mm ). New seals/gaskets all over . Muffles aint brilliant , new motobatt , halogen headlight conv , new clutch and throttle cables.
    Not concourse but a good tidy original numbers complete RD with NO issues .....................apart from the tires ... has 100-90-18's front and rear , should be 90-90-18 and 110-90-18 .

    I would rather any perspective buyers view the bike , or at least get a friend to view if your not local , . Bike currently has no wof and rego is on hold but both can be sorted upon sale ( it will pee thru a wof )
    PM me for more pix , details email or ph ........

    Would you consider a swap for one of my grandkids?
    it's not a bad thing till you throw a KLR into the mix.

    Its a RD 400g ( 3m4 ) and it did come as you describe graphic wise , but it also came with the Daytona special " graphics kit , and after a bit of snooping around I found that it had all the same bits as the Daytona except the graphics so I figured what the hell . Paint is a pearl/opal white then clear then the stickers and then more clear coat. Huh seems illogical that I get an all matching #'s bike , complete and original ..... and then go put the wrong stickers on it
    Forgot to say that it has all new rubber bits ( foot pegs , speedo /tacho /handle bar mounts ) new front sprocket , carb kits , fibre reeds , air filter, fork seals and oil , new brake pads and calipers / master cyl o/hauled .

    17 year old me and 50+ year old me both agree. If I hadnt spent all my money on blow and hookers I would own that bike already.

    It's sadly well out of my price range but I do want a G project if someone has one languishing. Sorry for shameless threadjack but it's your fault for making me want one a little bit more.

    Think I'll go, back to sleep.

    Jesus I'm going to have to murder them. And that's exactly twice as much as I have. Should have started this gig 5 years ago.

    Thanks will keep that in mind.

    I had been eyeing up one stored away waiting for the right time when I had some spare to make an offer. Now I have a little bit. Someone came to look at his D. I said if he thought of selling the G let me know. Next week the G is gone. That was 2 months ago, bad timing. But now that makes me want one more.
