For Sale: 1982 Yamaha RD350LC for sale
Forget the EPA. While you’re at it, skip the FDA, ATF, DOT and DMV too. What you are looking at my friends is an imported smoker par excellence. And while this might be a commonplace machine to our international readers, US-based droolers know better. For while Yamaha continued the RD line unabated until the late 1980s, US riders only had access to the 2 year model run of the RZ 350.
This bike is based on a RD350LC – the close equivalent to the US-based RZ. From there, many tasty two stroke go fast bits have been added, and I imagine many pounds of unnecessary weight removed. This bike looks very clean, and there are some nice touches that reek of care and time investment such as the safety wiring. The components look to be absolutely fantastic quality, and who wouldn’t want a set of those Spondon discs on their ride?? The very best part of all is that this bike is already registered in the US and plated in California. Aside from being the home of Hollywood and the ex-Governator, California is also one of the most difficult states in which to import a smoker. That right there is a value add!

To make things even better, his announced buy now price is very, very competitive with other RZ350s we have seen – before all of the upgrades were added in.
