Yamaha RD50M 1979

A new project again. I’ve had this Yamaha RD50M for a while, and no plan for it. It’s a german 5 speed model, it can never be ridden as a Moped in Denmark. What better to do than a tuning project?

Right now i’m stripping it for parts that i don’t need, less weight and fewer parts that can fall off 😉

The engine will get new bearings, seals and some porting for a larger cylinder kit. At the moment it has a 45 mm Polini kit with a 20 mm Mikuni. A good daily driver with a topspeed of 80 km/h, nothing you can win a race with. I need something faster, more about that later.

The gallery will be updated with more pictures in the future.
