Gordon King’s 1977 Yamaha RD400
By Gordon King
Thanks for the great article on the RD400 (November/December 2018). All true! Here’s mine, a 1977 original, with only 1,600 miles on it. It is nearly perfect, and I even have the original battery (dry), which has never been charged. I spent more time with the RZ variants, and my son raced to an amateur national championship in 1994 on our 75 horsepower rocket! Long live 2-strokes!
