A purchase like that has less to do with the cost, than what owning it is worth to you. Boy, that came out kinda heavy, huh?

$3750 (or best offer) for a damn-near-new 1977 RD400 would seem like a decent price...

A high school buddy had a two stroke Yamaha. I think it was a 250. This 400 looks cherry. All the work has been done. Go for it.

Ah, memories.

Well I figure if I can grind on him a little and ride it around for a year I won't lose much when I find another sucker
