Good sources for RD parts are Economycycle.com, hvccycle.com, mikesxs.com.....and EBay. If you are local in Western Co, I can help source RD parts for you, I have had several, and currently have a Daytona Special and a 74' 350.

Hey Rick, you don't by any chance have the lid to the tank I got from Brian?  RD400

Sorry Chris, don't have any RD400 tank caps, but Mikesxs has aftermarket ones for $28, good quality too.

Try looking for an XS400 speedo and ign switch, several of the XS400 and RD400 parts interchanged. For some reason I am thinking the speedo's and pilot box's were the same.

Ed Erlenbach is building a 250 Land speed bike and selling off some of his spare parts to help fund the effort. http://www.2strokeworld.com/forum/index.php?topic=29492.0 Even if he does not have something listed it is worth sending him a PM just in case, also post up in the wanted section. There are a number of folks in the group that have rather large collections of parts,  should be able to help you out.

That link is not working for me. What was it posted under? I am planning to go to Bonneville this year, would like to find him in the pit!
Who are the grateful dead? And why do they keep following me?
