yamaha rd350 liquid cooled ratty racer
 
I spend most of my spare time restoring/refurbishing vintage Japanese motorcycles, but this particular project may fit in here better than those. I came across a 1975 rd350 and an old road race fairing of a similar vintage. I couldn't bring myself to repaint the really cool period correct "patina", paint, gold leaf and stickers, so I am going to build the whole bike as a barn find style, but with all the mechanical stuff in tip top shape. I found a liquid cooled top end from a European model of the same bike, and im hoping to push 50+ hp on the rear hoop. Here is pretty much where she is at right now.
