Today's Featured Listing is this RD400 Daytona Special. Reviews in it's day remarked that this 2 stroke was for hooligans and wheelie addicts. 1979 marked the end of the RD400 and the Daytona Special was Yamaha's way of celebrating their success at the fabled racetrack.
This is example has only 2039 original miles and is un-restored which adds a nice touch of patina that I find endearing, not to mention it wouldn't intimidate me to actually ride it rather than purely display.
Thanks for helping support the site with a Featured Listing and good luck with the sale Dave!
from the seller:
I have an un-restored Yamaha RD400F Daytona Special. It has once over Wiesco pistons in it because the previous owner botched its initial Break-In. The original air filter has been replaced with a foam element and the brakes rebuilt due to a long storage period. This bike has always been in my heated shop except for the rides. I have owned this bike since 1994. I have the original sales invoice from place of purchase. Except for a few nicks and scratches, this bike is immaculate. I am asking $6,900.00 for someone to take care of her. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. And yes, I have the original mirror.
