My RD250 LC

I woke up one day with a two-stroke itch I needed to scratch.

I started out on the hunt for an RD350 YPVS as my brother had one when I was about 13 but I'd never ridden it.

I found a good one but the fella has just sold it. He mentioned he also had an RD250LC (which is a bit before my era). Because his 350 looked so clean, I went to view the 250 and bought it. Itch firmly scratched.

Cracking little bike. I have a 350LC of similar vintage, but in blue/white. The engine is out of the frame and on the bench, awaiting a total strip down and rebuild, but the rolling chassis is in pretty good original shape.

Simple little bike, but I bet it goes well!

The eagle-eyed among you will notice that something is missing...

Nice! Uncut rear mudguard and sub-frame too.

After owning an LC for 27 years I sold mine a few years back. :(
