A friend of my sister had the same model, same year, same colour. He’d pop round and park it in the drive and me and my mate would appreciate its looks.

MY FIRST B IKE

I have a74 rd 250

I had a later 200DX but my RD125 looked identical to this one.

My first motorcycle! I loved it! Wow really brings back memories.

Ticker stonebroom comes to mind

I have one.๐Ÿ˜Š

I had the 125 lovely to

Passed my test on mine in 1976

I had the identical bike, purchased new in February 1975 from Cray Motorcycles in Orpington (now long gone) for £408.

Very nice, but that’s a very dark purple ( nearly black in photos) also a bit pricey IMO

Beautiful looking bike but prices are ridiculous now

We all thought that.

Lovely but ......how much !

9k lmao omg can’t stop laughing ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ

Only one name I need to mention. Colin Chapman.

Quality ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Crazy money over 9 grand?? Stuck with that then bambi

Any good to you Ivor Cornwell

You mean 9mph ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Did Yamaha make one just before the fs1e think it was a ss50

I get all damp in the right places......then see the price.

I used to love changing into 5th whilst overtaking these on my Suzuki Ap 50 ๐Ÿคฃ

This was the fastest colour Lol

I had a mint one and I ashamed now looking at this fine example to admit I thrashed it. Such a shame

190 mph flat out

Nearly 9 grand for something that's barely faster than a push bike! Ha'way man!

Very nice. Probably be 10 grand by Friday !!!!

Definitely the best color on those. I wish they sold that color in the states. All we have here is the blue.

Lot of comments on here about the price? Did you read the description? Lot of work and money gone into this one. Standard H2 in mint condition fetch £20k no problem,this one looks like good value to me.

Almost $25000 US?! 10 years ago mint showroom condition were going for $12000. Should've brought a few......

I love these bikes, IMO this one too expensive.

Nice bike, shame they never went round bends.

A lot of money for a lovely sound not much else going for those evil handling seventies bikes sorry guys I was there !

How much?!?

Beautiful but stupid price lol

Get some great riders on these machines just throwing that out there for the FIM you can have that for free , I’d watch it on Eurosport I hate watching fourstrokes

Never had one but I always liked the look of them. The cast alli engine cowl shows attention to detail, looks so much better than pressed steel.

Quite a bit like the Sears Allstate moped I had as a kid in the 60s

Needs a bit of work but would be good cheap transport for the right person.

Martin Grenville didn’t your Dad have one of these?

I wouldn't put the word lovely & Puch in the same sentence but it is in good condition!๐Ÿ˜‚

My first track bike at age 10. It was a bit tall though. It was my uncles and I swapped him a crazy rabbit for it. The bike lasted a year or so of abuse. The rabbit chased Alsatians around and occasionally took a chunk out of anyone who thought it was a cute furry pet. It was possessed!!

Got the same bike at 16 whanted the Yamaha fs1e but got shit job and shit bike but had loads of fun on it raced a tractor but lost

Striped one down and put knobbly tires on .. it went for ever ..

It was lovely to see the huge response yesterday to a post featuring one of my heroes the late, great Jarno Saarinen. IMHO Jarno would have gone on to be one of the greatest racers of all time if fate hadn't intervened that sad day in May, 1973 at Monza in a crash which took his life and that of Renzo Pasolini.

This short film is well worth a watch and shows Jarno hanging off the bike in a style that many racers feel he pioneered and became the norm in later years.

Great stuff

Great rider would have been one of the greatest of all time on one of the best bikes of all time

Certainly my hero’s across all sports

A hugely talented rider and engineer - I have no doubt he would have won multi world titles had he not been killed. Yamaha chose him to develope and ride their first ever 500 and he won the first couple of GP's before the accident.

A true legend and taken to early he had a lot more to give

The man.

Barber Motorsports Museum in Birmingham AL has one of these I believe. Every one of you guys needs to visit this place.

Rode a Silk, (1970's Scott), that we sold from the dealership where I worked. Very nice ride, quick enough and very smooth.

Do like that , and when mud gaurds actually did the job they where made for !

Ahead of its time

A stunner and fair money could definitely find room for that

Loved the Silk 700S, Never got to ride one,

I remember that photo. Must be good advertising to last around 50 years in my memory.

I once got a lift on back of one like this as my bike had broken down only mod a set of ace bars . Couldn’t believe the power and two up handling definitely a wolf in sheep’s clothing ๐Ÿ‘

Had the RD350B in silver...great bike, went well and handled good. Bit light on the front end two-up, pulled many an accidental wheelie!

Back in the day 74. Whole group of us on a different cc bikes but all Yamaha's including 2 350''s. 2 Stock standard and the other had much bigger jets. Suzuki 750 kettle pulls up at the robot next to the 350's. Lights change green and they're off, both RD's in front, all 3 bikes disappear into the distance. We were on RD200's so had no chance whatsoever. Later we catch up as they pulled over a few km away. Suz caught the first rd but could catch the 2nd with the bigger jets, oh and the rider was only about 65kg. Small guy he was. Suz. Owner just couldn't believe that the bikes were only 350's. Wished I owned one.

Jarno Dunlop Sheene in that order.

Never ridden one but I’ve always thought they were a beautifully styled machine. Like many bikes of that era.

I had a yamaha 350 purple and white 1971 wish I had it today. Next one 1973 Harley Davidson AMF 1000 xlh sportster yes wish I had it also

Not got the looks of that 250 bennilli you had pal or the sound

Jarno was bit before my time ,I was still a young kid racing dirt bikes , but I do remember reading in the bike magazines when he died

i had the model before, the RD was far better, but my R5-3 was down 3 hp on the RD, but was the fastest 350 in its day

...the RD 350 was the first street bike I ever off-roaded on up (and down!) some ski slope (off season!) on a borrowed bike while visiting my aunt and cousins in western MA, while my 77 Maico 250 waited for me at home!

Brings back memories, Thats the same color as the one I owned many years ago in NZ, Wished I still had it

I have to say - Jarno was the best rider I have ever seen. Taken from us far too soon. He would have won a lot more titles!

Photo of me and my RD 350 A/B taken winter 1981 / 82. I was the second owner from new and the fourth ( Long story ). This one had had the 6th gear upgrade installed by Padget Yamaha by the 1st owner. Even though I had bigger faster bikes at the time and later on this was the ultimate silly grin maker ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ‘.

I do remember that bike Isn"t that the one that you slid under the pickup on and got that awful painful road scrape.

I had the 77 RD 400 with down sweep chambers that bike was a blast on ft Lauderdale beach

Had the Silver version. Rapid bike.

Worked on many of them when I was with Barry Smith yamaha in the mid 70ies

RD400 was a far better machine both in performance and looks.

A fun, fast street rip! My best friend had one in the early 80s and was always a welcome trade to ride for a bit! Truly a lion in sheep’s wool!

Fast bike and I always thought it was better than the 400!

Great bike I had one the same colour very fast for a 350 mine was 1973 model

Had a RD350B, LVH919P, loved it to bits. Silver, and had a silver top box to carry the beer around! Went like a rat up a drainpipe, flat bars, Girling shocks, Boyeson reeds, NGK gold palladium plugs (cost a fortune!) and thicker fork oil with spacers to stiffen it up. Sold it for house deposit.....,,

Jarno Saarinen was in a different class to everyone else in the early 70's RIP

Owned one of the first in UK. Great piece of kit for its time.

My neighbour had one of those brand new, will always remember riding with him on my S1 250 Kwack and he kept up with me no problem while running it in!

I had the 250 in the same colour but I would have loved a 400. Had a 350LC instead, later on.

I still like these even more, style wise, than the later 350. Very minimalist look.

I’d like another one too... but not for £8500.

Yes looks nicer than mine

I like that lots best colours for an RD in my opinion

Remember it Dave..

If it don't lift the front wheel in 2nd it's knackered ๐Ÿคฃ

I had a brand new B4 in 1980 aged 17. Best sounding 250 even if it wasn’t the fastest. The middle pot did cut out sometimes in the rain, interesting when it came back on again especially around corners ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

The KH looked as good as it sounded. The X7 was the fastest of the air cooled 250s though the coffin tank RD was nearly as quick and had better handling. The Benelli 250 2C had the best handling and brakes of all the air cooled 250s but didn’t have autolube and had no more speed than the later KHs. I’ve often wondered what it’d be like to drop an X7 motor in a Benelli frame. I had. KH250 for a bit and it seemed quick at the time.

I had one in 1976 same colour looked great but got through loads of plugs.

I loved the two strokes in the 60's and 70's, but they just didn't handle very well. I once took a Ducati 250 Desmo out of our workshop for a test ride with someone else riding an RD 250. On the straight the RD was faster, but when we came to the wiggly bits I past him with ease.

I have a 1973 Kawasaki S2 350 triple in orange and a 1972 Kawasaki S2 350 in red. They were only made for 2 years and they are wicked fast.

Enjoyed my S1, great triple howl, my mates were not impressed by the oil spots I covered them in though

Had a few, easy to work on & sounded great.

Never owned or ridden one , and I wouldn't mind either !! Not a bad price too compared to the rd's ect

I believe that colour is Candy Apple Red. Not sure this was the correct colour for 1979?? Also no grab rail

I went look at one in 79/80 that had a problem with one of the 3 sets of points that kept coming loose. It was £25. My mate took it down the road and dropped it. It slid for about 50 yards. I didn't buy it. ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

I love the colour, is it a kawasaki colour ?

Owned a couple of the 250’s in green and had 350,400 and a 500 liked them all

My brother had the green one. Lovely bike.

KH 250 with Z900 handlebars and a 3 into 1 piper .... o’ yea and to be 17 again

Best sounding road stroker ever

Had one white green & black, loved it.

KH 250 many moons ago.

Didnt have one but I will at some point:)

Steven Slater . Was your KH the same colour than this originally? I vaguely remember one like this. Love it..

Loved them. I’ve had 3

had a Suzuki TS 250

Lef671p was my kh250 reg first bike never forget

I haven't ridden one. What I don't understand is why all those graphics, or similar, are always plastered on the tanks? Why not just paint the words "Viscous Bastard" instead? Think I'll stick to me soft 250 four stroke

That's exactly what I need for vet class racing, lol ๐Ÿ˜†

I haven’t, but now I know that, I’d like to!

Had an earlier 500 version. They were the king of the hills in the California desert

Nick Wilford Nice ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Nice, but not sure my left leg could start it.๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Wouldnt mind a quick rip on this Jaxson Forbes it would probably kill me thou

Even faster than the maico 700 two stroke ?

Definitely would be the fastest to break down. Not renowned for reliability back in the day

That’s how Max Biaggi started - his parents bought him an Aprilia for his 17th birthday. He’d not ridden a bike before that, had no license so he took it to a track to have a go. One year later he won the Italian 125 championship, 4 years later the first of his 4 250cc world championships. Heck of a rider.

I pdi'd the first one of these in Dorset so obviously had to road test it๐Ÿ‘. It was pretty good back in the day

Always wanted, mate had an nsf in same colours , looked good as well

....I’d have had to change my pants ๐Ÿ˜„

Knew a guy who had one back in the day, we were all jealous all I could afford at the time was a crash damaged ns125f

Graham Collings ๐Ÿ‘

i used to have one of these back in 92 was h reg was rapid

Nice .. I had a Gilera GFR125 ... Which unsurprisingly went pop!

The LC 250 was a game changer, handling unreal for its day,this bike was so cheaper and good fun,a bargain ๐Ÿ‘

I rode a x5 not impressed with the performance or handling .๐Ÿฅฑ

Had one! Hated it! Too light shit brakes & all round cheap finish! RD 250 loads better! Then came the LC! Game OVER!

You could wheelie these things for fun. I had 1 it was great crack

Sorry but still a poor second to the popular yamaha RD'S

RDs & X7s were popular in Australia did Kawasaki make a 250cc ,, 2 stroke road bike ??

Ian like the black one you had bro...

I had one when the new learner laws came in ,the limit for learners went down to 125 ,it was quick but so light on the front end ,lots of wheelies ,sorry officer

Albert Fairnington

Super Nave! ๐Ÿ‘ฝ

Still a fast bike today !!!!

X7 was the first true street-legal 100 MPH 250.

Dave McBadger

This was my Yamaha YDS7 250 I bought when I turned 17 in 1974

Great bikes but lost some of that 'big bike' feel with this model, everything seems to have shrunk a little

The early ones were faster but u have done a great job i had one in white great bike

Very nice example, The exhaust joint cover is a mk2, i paid £765 for my mk1 in 1979. Mk2 was £820 in 1980.

Loved mine, being a shortarse these suited me more than the previous gt 250 which were slower and much heavier.

Fun bike and handled well too

What's he on about a £10.000 grand one is that what mint one's are bringing ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Had a blue one that was tuned by TERRY BECKET who was the man when I was 17

Have to agree with Rob Briggs on that one

Wasn't even a match for the Yamaha RD 200

Used to just swap barrels and pistons on yr7

I had the RD250 too. Alan Tyson put the 350 pots on his and it went like crazy. โ˜บ๏ธ good old days (bikes)

Had one when I was 17 loved it

Several times just swap the jugs and pistons

First RD I ever rode. Great bike in its day

Ronald MacLean

That's exaktly what I had in my youth!Same color same engine, was my dream!

350 head/barrels /pistons were all the rage with all the 250rds back then. ๐Ÿ‘

Front drum instead of a disc means it's a import probably U.S market. Very nice ๐Ÿ˜€

Would've liked to have seen a '74 RD 350 in this color!
