    Hi Glyn. Been looking for a way to contact you for ages since i spoke to you by email some years ago (my email went south). Are you still making the twin pulley kits for the YPVS, by any chance ? My N2 hopes so :-) Thanks, Jase.

    '77 RD400. A little before and after. Was rougher than it looks in the photo when I found it in a barn in 2014. Love this thing! Old.JPG Engine.JPG Front.JPG Beach.jpg

    Nice! I have a 72 waiting for me in the garage to get back on the road.

    Wonder whether that tank and seat are still available.....?

    When I worked on the R5, I found 2 sites for the tank and seat - Airtech Streamlining in the US, and Mead Speed in the UK.

    Has anyone purchased the decently priced radiators that are on Ebay for the RZ350? I'm getting my project off the ground and that's just one more thing I need to source. They have different names but appear to be identical. https://www.ebay.com/i/112544142735?chn=ps
