1974 Yamaha RD 250


Up for sale is a 1974 Yamaha RD 250 with a clean and clear title and current registration and ONLY 1943 ORIGINAL MILES!!!!! This bike is in excellent shape with next to no mileage on a NUMBERS MATCHING FRAME AND ENGINE! This bike got a full frame off restoration just a couple years ago however the motor was untouched aside from a general service with new plugs, lines, fluids, etc. due to the extremely low mileage and excellent compression test results. The bodywork was repainted in a candy blue with reproduction graphics. This is not a concours winning restoration rather more of a mild restoration to bring the bike back to very good rideable condition with some minor imperfections and cosmetic flaws still present as to be expected on an almost 5 decade old 250 two stroke. This bike has been kept period correct and as close to factory original as possible aside from some performance upgrades such as the tires and DG exhaust. All lights and signals work great and it fires right up first kick every time. The jetting is spot on for the exhaust and she will pull the front end up in first gear without much provocation. We have the original factory exhaust for it as well to add to the collectibility as well a few other parts. This is a bike that can be ridden every sunday morning without fear of getting a rain drop or dust particle on it like a museum quality nut and bolt restoration and can be enjoyed for what it is which was a small extremely lightweight and agile two stroke 250 in all its smoky glory where if you keep it on the pipe will easily hang with 4 strokes 3 times its size of the era. Needs nothing but a new owner and the torque induction Yamaha autolube system still works well so no premix necessary. It does drip a few drops of oil from the autolube system after sitting a few days but it has been upgraded to clear vinyl lines to show oil and fuel flow. It does have a few cosmetic flaws such as a very minor hairline crack in the headlight glass as well as a pit in chrome one of the fork tubes. Overall this would be an excellent 2 stroke to add to the stable of any vintage Yamaha collector or two stroke fanatic.
