I have been a regular reader of CMM for a few years so it’s time to tell you the story of my RD250. Now in my 50s, I have been a biker since the age of 16 starting with a FS1-E then was the big decision: an RD250 or a GT250? The GT won with possibly the influence of the late-great Barry Sheene. However looking back I always wondered what the RD would have been like. So one has appeared!

I brought this bike from an older gentleman who was an engineer and ex Rolls-Royce employee. He did a pretty good job at restoring this 1970s icon: I have added the Gibson/Allspeeds and a few genuine parts. I hope you agree the bike looks great and for me the sound and smell of two-stroke oil takes me back to my teenage years!
