    I'd like to say my RD400 is just the same, but can't: covered in dust and unused in the shed, because now owned by my son who lives and works on the other side of the world (London, I'm in New Zealand).

    So, his is the same colour scheme, original unrestored.

    Good job, you.

    A buddy of mine had a black and gold '76 (similar to this picture). He used to let me ride it in '78 or so before I had a bike of my own. I still remember the otherworldly feeling that produced. :ricky

    As we age, otherworldly feelings are harder to come by. I think you need to add one of those to your collection and at least try :lol3

    That color scheme never came to the US, pity. If it did I would have sold my '75 RD350 for one.

    Looks like this photo was taken mid-flight in the Vomit Comet. Note the guy on the right seems to be floating. Simulating moon gravity, I reckon.

    Beautiful BMWs darmahman! A great contrast between the stoic and elegant classic lines of the R75 and the desperately trying to escape from the disco era, goofball super saturated splatter paint of the 90's! Love em both!
