RD350 restoration project by Motorcycle Girl

Celeste, aka the Motorcycle Girl has been restoring an RD350 street bike. Below you can find some text and pictures about her restoration. Give it a look. Celeste can be found on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/celeste.atkinson.5.
I have not taken any recent pictures but enclosed is a link to the facebook album where I have posted some of them.  I bought it in several boxes and have been doing the ground up restoration over the last couple of winters.  The pic of the entire bike in the album is one that I found online so it is not my actual bike.  Tank and plastic parts are out getting painted as we speak and I hope to get the engine in the bike in the next couple of weeks. This model was never available in the US, only Canada so parts are more difficult to source locally.  Many of my parts have had to come from the UK where there is a cult following for this bike.  Interesting too is that Paul Manson(another listener) has one of these bikes too!

Episode 57: A Poppin’ Good Time

Episode 57 A Poppin’ Good Time
In this episode, Chris’s mic pops. A lot. Then we talk about the rave reviews of the Triumph Tiger 800 family, and James tells Chris how wrong he is about the apparent and rumored new Trophy. Chris fights back with more mic pops to no avail; he ends up on the ropes. Fortunately, the guys are distracted by a voice mail and some email feedback, and the whole mess is rescued when Swingset drops by to talk about his new Dual Sport Podcast and why you should never hang around a certain type of person or two, and why you shouldn’t ride your dual sport motorcycle to a children’s playground. Or something like that.
Also, please note, this is the last new episode of The Pace Motorcycle Podcast for 2010. We’ll be back after a break for the holidays in early January with fresh content, new interviews and a whole new list of things to talk about... Maybe Honda will release a new bike to talk about, eh? Happy Holidays, ride safe and take care everyone. And thank you for a great year of interaction with The Pace. You guys rock!
