Bruce Ford Dunn RD350

Unread post by Weldherup »

I’ve a wee Bruce Ford Dunn chassis with an RD350 in it. The engine is freshly rebuilt and not even run in. It had bearings rods pistons and it’s got an electronic ignition. It’s got nice expansion boxes. It’s got new master cylinders, fuel pump. The shocks on the front are tired. Rear shock is fine. It’s running AP twin pots all round. It’s been started a few times and that’s all. Just gauging interest. The bodywork is shabby. It’s got an Ireson faring but it’s too heavy. No idea what it’s worth with this engine. I’ve no photos of it in its current trim. It’s at the back of the garage and so I won’t have any photos for a week at least. Any interest?

When you have photos send them to steve@steveenglish.com and I'll add them here.
Til there are photos in my experience you won't get much response.
If you have an email address or phone numner you will get a better response as well.

I'm quite sure that with photos and some contact details you will get quite some response as the Fsra Pre injection and 350 class is on a roll at the moment.

Got her pulled out. She’s not 100% finished but will be soon enough. It’s my mates bike. He’s moved onto another project and so this one may be available for sale. It needs a fairing and new shocks on the front and the rear serviced. It needs tyres and only has one set of wheels. There are no spares. She has a few war wounds here and there but it’s a nice bike over all. It’s a really nice well thought out little chassis. It’s very unique design. I’m not sure if the rd350 ypvs will be enough to be competitive but it maybe depends on your ability to tune it. It’s the same engine as a banshee and some of the lads that raced those had them motoring. The chassis is an 87 I think and the motor is a 86. There seems to have been some modifications in 2013 by CG I think. The chassis came from Steve Abbot before me and the motor came from a bike I bought a few years back as a donor.
