Thanks Sujith for sharing the pics; All of them looks fabulous. Look at the riding position; amazingly comfortable & no modern day motorcycle offers such comfortable riding position.

You right Ajay. Forks are of RD350, my bike was next to that bike. That bike belongs to a Mech. The speedo of that bike was from Kinetic.


@aargee,
Sorry for the delayed reponse. The head is a "Radial fin" or "flower head" whatever name they call it. Used mostly for racing as it gives more cooling to the engine.
Here is the link to the restoration of my bike where this has been discussed little more detail.

Have always seen more Yezdis and Yezdi enthusiasts in bangalore, so this is not at all surprising. Great work guys, the bike deserves all this and more, a true stylish legend.

Fantastic - I wish I could have made it there yesterday. The sound of a Yezdi / Jawa is pure music to the ears!

400!!! Whoa!!! Something that I should repent to have missed in life
@Rk_Sans - Thanks
@Srisha - I'd this doubt because I came across a pic of restored RD350 in Chennai who had patience for about 8 years to collect all the parts & restore it to US specific RD 350 in pristine condition & they'd similar type of cylinder head.

Check out the news here

But again, not knowing things doesn't means overlooking right? And yes, that one should be oil king

haha! rksans, i managed to find RT13 (mainly coz i'd met him the previous day), but no one else. Met some of the regular Y/J fellows though, as expected. Hope you enjoyed the meet. At last count there were 467 bikes. Did you join the ride to Channapatna?

Cheers
Rahul
