    Love the RD elm creek. The H1 and Daytona 400 pictured above we part of my fathers collection he sold. He also owned five RD350s and one point and still has one. My favorite bike he had was a h2 750 triple....I got to ride it a few times and it SCREAMED.

    Very cool... Love the vintage stuff. That old 900 is beautiful!

    I still recall reading one of the first tests of that bike (forget which magazine). I'm paraphrasing here, but it went something to the effect of, "How do you describe Kawasaki's new Z1 900?... Been shot out of any cannons, lately?!?"

    Got to ride a lot of cool bikes back in the day, including both the 400 & 500 triples. Never did have an opportunity on a 750, though... Would still love to do that.

    Elm... There's a Kenny Roberts Edition RZ about 5 miles from where I'm sitting, along with a CB750 like you have pictured. Local dealer that sells Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki & Polaris (but no Victory bikes).

    Is it for sale ??!?!?
    I had ordered one back in the day and the dealer never put through the order. I ended up buying a GPZ 55 instead...

    Pat, I don't think either is for sale... More of a collection/display type thing.

    Then again, like they say... Everything's for sale.

    I can go get some more info if you'd like.

    My first street ride when I was 16 was a Honda 400Four...had that for a couple months then got an 81 GPZ550..... (wish I had pictures of them both)

    Always had a thing for the old bikes...much like old cars...... Always loved riding the old ones as they were a little scarier to ride adding to the excitement factor lol

    I love that H1. I had a 75 S3 400 the same color in high school with a 71 H1 500 motor in it. It had Wirges expansion chambers and that thing was 3 bikes loud on the pipe and hauled. (stopping and turning not so much) Another buddy had a KH400 and an H2 the same color. Later on I was able to pickup an 84 RZ350 Ylw and Blk Kenny Roberts replica. I had the cylinders ported, balanced and welded crank and 34mm carbs. A lot of four stroke riders who thought they were special got to smell two stroke from that thing. Had a guy want to burn his CB900 one day after an embarassment. Thanks for making me remember!
