1979 Yamaha RD400 Daytona Special

Get a closer look and hear this classic two-stroke rocket scream! The 79 Yamaha RD 400 D – Daytona Special is the last year of Yamaha’s air cooled two-stroke twin sport motorcycles.

This numbers-matching, three-owner beauty has only 2320 original miles and has a completely rebuilt motor by Spec II (Spec 2) performance in Sylmar, California in 2010. When they rebuilt the motor they also added Spec II classic expansion, a 2 into 1 K&N air filter/intake, Yamaha Banshee cross-over intake, performance reeds and re-jetted to make it run perfectly.
