Yamaha RD350lc 1981
Pre Tie bar - Matching Numbers UK bike not a converted 250 or non matching - This has always been a UK 350 bike .
I have had this bike for ages. I bought it as a non-running project over twenty years ago. I think i paid £450 for it .

After lots of agonising I have decided to sell my long-term restoration Yamaha rd350LC. I have spent a long time getting it to the condition it is in now. It has been a rolling restoration and is a rider not a show bike. The bike has been completely stripped and rebuilt over an extended period and benefits from the following:
Engine :-
Crankshaft rebuilt with all new bearings and seals
Heavy duty clutch plates and springs
New aluminium larger capacity radiator - New water pump impellor and shaft - runs cool all the time
The bike is fitted with Nikkon expansion chambers in great condition no dents – Never wanted it to be a standard bike everyone fitted expansions on an LC
The bike is fitted with 31k carbs from the later power valve model which was also a popular upgrade back in the day.
Chassis :-
All frame and black parts repainted
The forks were re-hard-chromed by AM Philpot’s and fitted new seals were fitted. The fork springs have been replaced with new progressive ones
Swing arm bearings replaced
Both wheels have been rebuilt with replacement wheel bearings and seals
Steering head bearings replaced with tapered roller type
Front and rear brakes overhauled with braided brake lines , new seals, pads, shoes etc.
Electrical & Instruments:-
Switch gear is in good condition and all electrics are fully functioning
It has upgrade Banshee coils fitted
All electrics and gauges work as designed
Tank and side panels were painted by me several years ago. There are a couple of age related cracks in the side panels.
The bike is fitted with a Guilliari Seat which is in good condition
Rides as it should: I have covered about 100 miles since the crank rebuild.

Can send running video if potential buyer is interestedIt starts first kick. It is a typical LC with nothing below 6 thousand RPM then it goes mad and wants to wheelie
Sounds great with the pipes.
I have a collection of bikes that I am looking to reduce to fund other projects, nice holidays etc. I just don’t ride this particular one enough. I have others that I will also be selling soon.
