Instead of the ubitiquous, "nice bike" the phrase that comes to mind from seeing THAT '75 RD250 is the same as in Pulp Fiction, when Uma Thurman goes to the rest room to uh, "powder her nose." Upon standing up from railin' a couple healthy lines of Coke, she exclaims...

"God Damn.....I say God DAMN!!"

That's my reaction to your RD250. F*ckin' SWEET.

It's not my 250, but I have been around it a lot from a ways back. (Funny, my brother almost bought it at one point). I've got a lot of memories from its earlier days. It's great to see it still going strong and in good shape.
Yes, the 250B was the best looking of the bunch. I think the purple 350A looks real good, too.

To each their own. Doesn't look too bad, but I would hope it has good mirrors to see you not like it.

Since I haven't posted it in awhile except a couple avatar pics, here's what eventually became of what started out as a purple '74 RD350A. My "Me262" concept Cafe Racer first dreamed up in '77 on a canyon road in Germany:

Nifty bike Judy. The trim pieces are clever. I still like your RD-125 the best.

Oh, and to keep us on topic...yes, I like a little chrome. I also like wheels with spokes, a frame you can see through from the other side, chain drive, carburetors, standard bars...

That was a bike?! I thought it was a picture of a sunspot, with all the glare and all...

The good news is that if he rides that wearing shorts, he won't be for long cause the sunburn on his nuts from the reflection off that thing would take a while to heal...
