Absolutely Rtech,

Let me tell u its not worth more than even 60k IMO.
The owner is some guy who buys a new car every year typof guy..and i dont think his wife likes him riding the bike..and he hasnt touched it in ages.
When we checked it out last..ummm.june (2002).. we managed to talk to the owner ( who is only avail at night...busy guy) he told the mechanic to get it up and running and then we got to keep the bike for half a day ;-P

njoy,
Rehaan.

ummmmm.....well i guses my friend told the mechanic he was just going for a "test spin" and then decided he could keep it or some time... hahaha..thats just my guess...he is like that.
The engine was still outta tune...as i sayd earlier they are hard to tune (4carbs)


Bike is not in good condition at all so dont expect too much!!

nice stuff rehaan.

Will let you know for sure if I need those diagrams!

Lets see...if the bike is still there, and he's asking a reasonable prive for it, it would be a good project for sure!

keeping my fingers crossed...

The CB750 was the worlds first superbike. I've seen one in Bandra. Sounded cool.
I've never seen a GT350 triple but have heard that the GT350 was a nice competitor to the RD350 in its times. I've seen a Vanvan at Central Garage, mumbai cenral.
Hey adil, any pics of the GT350 ?
Not GT350 ......GT750......2 stroke triple cylinder 750cc.....very fast...and dangerous........watercooled .......had one in England in 1979 ...... (was 17 then).........good fun.........sorry no photos

Almost bought and RD350 LT recently, but gave it back after a couple of weeks.

That is one immaculate HT you have there hooligan! Can't seem to take my eyes of it! I haven't seen an RD like that in Mumbai for years! All I see are junkmobiles sputtering around.

Though another member - 2L8ULOOSE has a nice RD with F2 double discs up front.

Anush, what made you give back the RD after a couple of weeks? And nice owner to take it back
