My 1981 XS650 - It's for sale!
My 1982 CB900 Custom (nevermind the old guy... (thank goodness he has a helmet on!)
Here's my 1979 RD400C. I bought this new just out of the crate in 1984. They had been in the attic of a small bike shop in Oklahoma. I paid original retail for my then-new RD. The picture was taken when I moved to Colorado in 1990.
I recently traded this 1984 Honda CB125S off for a new Suzuki TU250X:
The blue RD400 is a 1977.

WTF did it look like when you started? :huh
'79 XS1100...100% turnkey
Nice old school superbike!!!:eek1
YES! 1100cc and a kick starter!
Thanks for the positive feedback...yeah 1978 and 79 both had kickstarters...usually they were stowed away behind the right ssidecover as they also had e-start...but the shaft extends externally so that the kickstarter lever can be attatched...after 79 they plugged the hole with a rubber cover...the bike runs even better than it looks....i kid you not... as for Superbike...yes it was ...in fact in 1978 it was the 1st liter plus Superbike to come to the USA...95 hp from the factory. Taken from the showroom to the dragstrip in stock form it ran sub 12 second 1/4 miles all day long...and back then that was a big deal...today this bike can still hold its own out on the road but a 600 cc sport bike could easily out accelerate it...i 'spose...still has plenty of cool though...
A few bits are not completely correct for the model year... but it will make and excellent basis for a period correct cosmetic fix up...
I used to have this cb100 but sold it a few years ago. Luckily i just picked up this awesome thing. 1973 Cb350 four...
