1976 Yamaha RD400 Kenny Roberts Replica

Is this a cafe racer? Not really.

Is it ultra-cool? Absolutely!!!

This is a really well-done Kenny Roberts replica that has been made street legal to boot. The look is there, and the seller’s description claims that the bike is fully mechanically sound (“IT RUNS PERFECTLY WITH A ONE KICK START”). Overall, this is one great bike up on the eBay auction block.

Bidding is currently at $4K on the nose with the next bid supposedly breaking the reserve. There are almost 4 days left in the auction with 14 bidders. If you’ve got +$5K burning a hole in your pocket, this bike could be yours…

    Smart little “bumblebee” ring-ding. Authentic. What “technically” does it take to ba a cafe racer anyway? This one’s certianly showing the spirit. She may not sport a pedestrian slicer but guy’s like Roberts, Dunlop, Read, Carruthers and even Agostini flew this kind of gear around. No “poser” but maybe that’s the point.

    Ik ben zelf een replica racer aan het bouwen en ben dringend op zoek naar de kleur geel die je hebt gebruikt voor jou RD.
    Kan je me hier een kleurnummer van doen als je deze nog hebt?

    Vr Gr Tonnie
