I am surprised that the RD01 hasn't yet caught collector status. This model ain't perfect but in 1983, it was pretty much an audacious proposition. V twin and driveshaft on an offroad bike. Clearly marketed against BMW's R80GS ;-) Had you been local, I would have bought the bike right away.

I like the look of the bike and did consider buying more purely as an investment because I think long term they will be very vaulable. However I need to turn this one into a digger and will be very sad to see it go. If no interest I will put a cover over it and keep it. I did think about offering it to transport as an exhibit but thought it might be too young. Even my oldest daughter said not to sell it and she has never been on it !!
:(:(
