“My 1981 Yamaha RD350LC was one of those drunken ebay pur­chases. Luck­ily it was all there and only needed a few mi­nor tweaks to make it per­fect. It was a 4L0 with 31K carbs fit­ted and it had 1.5mm-over­size pis­tons. The speedo nee­dle would run off the clock. It was an amaz­ing wee bike and even­tu­ally some­one made me an of­fer for it I couldn’t refuse.”
