This week's eBay searching put us in a two-stroke mood, and what better way to scratch that itch than a Yamaha RD400? This one looks like it has lead a pretty easy life, and it's been sympathetically restored and looks ready to ride. 

The bike now has just 9,079 miles.  After it was stripped down, the frame was sandblasted and painted. The upper end of the motor was rebuilt after honing the cylinders. New pistons were installed, along with a whole list of other new parts and pieces.

A great little bike for running around town and playing on your favorite road, this RD is making a couple of us in the office wish we had a little extra dough sitting around to add another bike to the garage. Check this one out before we figure out a way to come up with the cash ourselves.
