1985 Yamaha RD500

Warning!

This post is in our archives. Links in this post have been updated to point to similar bikes available to bid on eBay.

Located in La Palma, California is a 1985 Yamaha RD500LC that only need some minor work to be complete.  This two owner RD500 shows only 3916km (2433mi) and only has 400mi since a “…frame off mechanical restoration.”  Supposedly the bike has mechanically been completely gone through and only need some minor cosmetic touches to complete it.

Cylinders were honed and ports chamfered. New oem rings, wrist pins and clips installed. Every seal, gasket and o-ring was replaced along with oil injector lines. Brakes were completely rebuilt including master cylinders, calipers (fitted with EBC HH pads) and rotors resurfaced. All wheel bearings were replaced with new sealed bearings

This RD500 needs some cosmetic replacement parts, most importantly the exhaust and fairings, to become a very nice, low mileage bike.  The bike is titled and registered in California. Seller is also a usa2strokers.com forum member so contact him through that site or through the eBay ad here.

  • Yeah, I watched this guy’s thread on the rebuild and he really, truly did a frame-up restoration with pictures and everything. He started the resto a day or so after he bought it and the cosmetic issue seems to be the only problem. It is truly a rare and beautiful bike and it’s too bad he’s selling it.

    Also, your blog is great. I would comment on more posts, but I am not interested in talking about things that I know nothing about.

    Thanks for the site!
