1979 Yamaha RD400 Daytona Special

by JS 9

The 1979 Yamaha RD400 Daytona Special for sale is a nice 1979 Yamaha RD400F Daytona Special that has had abt $2100 invested in the engine build alone!

It has new handlebars, grips, battery, the motorcycle seat has new upholstery and the fuel tank is shiny clean inside.

The brake calipers and Master cylinders (f&r) have been rebuilt, the stock carbs have been cleaned,rebuiltand synch'd. The fuel petcock has been rebuilt and got new gaskets and "O" rings. The bike's electrical has been scrubbed, checked and charges nicely. It got fresh transmission oil, new plugs, points and timing, the oil injection bled and synch'd and it has new oil lines.

It has the original paint and decals and it's showing its age but it's still a very attractive rust free Colorado motorcycle that starts easily and runs very well.

I've only put a few hundred miles on it and it still needs "break-in" for the new motor.

I had one of these when I was 17 (1977) and damn near killed myself on it a few times. This bike will pull wheelies in every gear. I know because I did it. Mine finally gave up the ghost when I slid it into a curb on a road that I was not familiar with. It turned left (the road) and went from pavement to gravel and as I leaned her over I hit gravel and she slid right into the curb doing about 40. I went over the high side and about 50 ft down the side of the road. I had a leather jacket on which saved me a bunch of skin but the bike was totaled. I loved that bike as it was my first vehicle and gave me freedom to go where I pleased. I can't believe there are still a few out there. May she live long and stay upright-James
