SOLD-1979 Yamaha RD400-F Daytona Special [SOLD]

  • SOLD-1979 Yamaha RD400-F Daytona Special

    Classic 1970's Two Stroke

    This is an ultra rare 1979 Yamaha RD400-F Daytona Special which starts, rides and stops just as it should.  The bike has the all important matching engine and frame numbers (starting with 2V0) and is in an as new condition (I would say that it is 9.5/10).  This Daytona was imported from the U.S.A into the U.K and was treated to some new old stock parts and as you can see looks just like the day it left the Yamaha show-room in 1979.  RD400 Daytona's are now depreciation proof and are an extremely rare bike as just 5000 were produced.This RD400 Daytona Special is ready for you to show or ride and it has just had a thorough check-over along with a full service and an M.O.T.  The engine starts with just one kick, is nice and quiet (no rattles) and once warm pulls cleanly in all of the gears.  The bike still has the butterfly emissions device fitted to the carburettors/exhaust and is working as it should (this was fitted due to the strict U.S emission requirements/laws which were being implemented during the 1970's).  This standard Daytona will only increase in value due to its condition and rarity and you will be hard pushed to find a nicer one this side of the Atlantic or even the other.
