New forum for all you RD-LC lovers. Anything related to these wonderful little pocket-rockets can be posted here.

Thumbs-up to 2smoke for suggesting this new forum, and who will moderate it! :smt023

First off i want to thank RZTOM too for opening up a space here for the LC owners to share! [smilie=thumb_yello.gif]
The 350 forum is a popular spot these days, lots of posts and new members. A worldwide membership. Its awesome. Lots of excitement with these almost 30 year old bikes!
Lately i bought a 81 RD350LC(elsie) in the "for sale section" from another member. As a result of that post, i have had alot of PM`s and emails from other members who also own these bikes so i know you elsie owners are out there reading this!
The LC`s have a cult following like the RZ, and i saw an opportunity to start a great archive here. Information on these bikes and their problems and fixes, modifications, differences, where to get parts....Just like the RZ350.
Yes the USA was leftout from these bikes unless they were imported but they didnt get the RZ500 either.
So anyway, if you have a RD350LC, i welcome you here to your own home!
If you dont have one, buy one! Or come take a look once in a while to see something new.
Please spread the word to other owners that there is a new place to come and share info here, maybe they will share their experience and knowledge with us.
Personally, I know i am on the beginning of the learning curve with these bikes and i will be asking questions and posting pictures of my project bike.
We want to know who the LC guys are, so post up a few pictures and tell us about your bike!

First time on the form. Just bought a Canadian LC as a father/son project. Collin is interested in mechanical engineering. Thought a 2 stroke engine rebuild would provide him the basic combustion engine knowledge to peak his interest. Plus they are simple to repair. We found this form is a wealth of knowledge to date especially regarding engine issues. Finding body parts is a challenge. Does anyone know who I could contact about a rear fender. Thx to all who have made previous postings. I'd post a photo, of the bike, but don't an attachment icon. Scott
