This was the final year in the US for the air-cooled two stroke twin based on the infamous RD350 /400,
bane of many a teenager's insurance policy. Sadly, this example fared no better. This thing was totalled
within a very short time of being purchased. Mrs. Overby wasn't happy, and I think Ronny's access to
Mom's purchasing power was forever curtailed after this one.
