Check out the CA plate as well. If I owned this I would just ride to every Greenpeace rally and sit there and rev the motor the whole time.

Buzz that sure brings back memories of the RD 350. Sort of like two of them side by side. I kept waiting for him to really whack the throttle. If only they could stuff the smell of the 2/stroke oil along with the rest of it...

There was one in Cycle Trader up in Bonney Lake wear sarnali lives and the dude wanted $19,500 for it.

I suppose if you spent that kind of dough and didn't wreck it you could always get your money out of it.

One the other hand. I'm watching a couple of RZ350s on ebay which will go for 3 grand or so in great condition. 2 fewer cylinders but still liquid-cooled with the power valve system.

I had one of those. Yep, the aluminum-framed Japanese spec version. Sold it for less than it was worth, but twice what I paid for it. Brought it into the states in pieces.

Believe it or not, you do get tired of the thing.

I'm guessing it would have to be a 2nd or 3rd bike.

What was it like to ride?
