1978 Yamaha RD400
Wanna get into classic sports bikes on the cheap? This little RD400 would be a good gateway in. Very clean with the period correct parts to give it the perfect amount of extra performance. The seller is short and to the point so I will be too.
Here’s his description.

I like how he sneaks Jay Leno, Childhood and no oil leaks in there. He’s like a surgeon with his words. Seriously though, this bike is great and should go for a fair price that an average guy could afford. If you’re going to ride this a bunch and don’t need it to be a totally stock bike, change the wheels. The wheels on these bikes could be cut into pieces and used as boats anchors. I agree they look the part but they weigh a ton. Other than that the bike is a very neat and sporty piece of Classic Sport Bike history
