Thought I'd share with you guys some pics I took this weekend. My buddy Dave is the sales manager at PDX Sports Plaza and he was putting together an open house/vintage Yamaha bike show, so he asked if I'd like to put my bike on display..... I said yes!! :smt003 He called a bunch of his friends and had about 10 bikes show up.
There was a mixture of two and four strokes, street and dirt, and a sand drag 565cc Banshee. I wish I would have taken more pics of the other bikes..... next time!
I hung out there most of the day talking with people coming through the store.
Lots of fun!

Jon, that is a XT model. I think it's pretty close to original except for a pipe.

I thought that sounded low too. The Canadian RD's had 47hp, but the US models had the pipes with the catalytic converters in them. I'll bet that where the difference is.

I just checked to see what $2399 would be in todays dollars.

Value: $5,349.61
Annual Inflation: 2.71%
Total Inflation: 122.99%
If I decide to sell Rory, you're first on the list!! :smt003
