Default RD 350 after complete re-build.

Uploading photos of my best friend's YD 350. It was found as a total scrap from Rajasthan, and some parts from Delhi; re-built in Kochi. Somebody here may be knowing this machine too.

Mods: Please move if this can be merged with any other thread.
With thanks and regards

Edit: Typo in title, its RD 350

Can see "Delhi" made fuel tap, be careful of these taps they cant supply enough fuel for the twin carb setup, many other things are there to make sure it will run for longer miles, start with basics of fuel supply.

RD always looks the best in red. Good job on the restoration. Do post some more pics of the restoration and some info on the parts gone into it.
The US spec pipes are like icing on the cake!

Thanks a lot everyone for the appreciation. Either me or my friend are not in India, during vacation we use this beast for a couple of hundred KMs. The restoration was not done under our supervision.

Regarding the engine and spares, most of the parts were procured from Delhi and a lot of work also was done there, but not completely. Later the bike was moved to Cochin and completely worked again.
Engine is HT, running on second or third oversize, IIRC. Everything is perfect. Mileage is around 16 KMs. The bike runs like a dream.

Spot on Ajay!! Recently my friend was in India and he complained about a bit of fuel issues, it may even due to this thing.

@ mayankk,
Thanks a lot for the great words friend, but neither me or he was not present through out the restoration. But whatever information I have, I will do share here. Front disk is of TVS Apache.
With thanks and regards
