I have been offered a mint 85 yamaha rz350 for trade for one of my pistols. It has 4500 original miles and runs great, doesnt need any work from what I can tell. Does anyone have any info about this bike? Google taught me its a 2 stroke 350cc putting around 60hp to the wheels stock. Will this be fast? Will it be fun?
ANGELS FOR LIFE!!!

No, they had Yamaha's "Autolube" system. You had a second small tank of 2-stroke oil.
Those things were wheelie-machines back then. Lots of better performing bikes around these days, but I'd look closely at it.
I was walking across the parking lot in college in the early 80's and a guy I had worked with came rocketing across the parking lot on his RD-400 on the rear tire. I'd love to own one.

same motor as the banshee, yes/ no? tons of aftermarket motor goodies. 60Hp-->90hp... no problem! As long as you dont mind rebuilding the motor often...
