1979 Yamaha RD400 Daytona special

This bike was brought to me by John Knowles. He bought this bike brand new when he was in college, he
rode it for several years while attending school. It was last registered in 1982 and at some point there
after it was put into storage until this past summer when John brought it to me to bring back to life.

After several months and some TLC it roared back to life.

The work done included the following: New Wiseco 0.5 over pistons, front and rear brake master
cylinder rebuilds, stainless brake lines, new electronic ignition, clutch plates, crank seals, pipes re-
chromed and some cleaning, painting and polish work to the engine.
