Back when I was Young and raced my RD350 B

Had a lot of fun & meet a lot of good guys

While tring to be my best, there were 65+

rds on that grid doing the same so placing in the top 5 was no easy task. I was ranked 8th over all in my class the 3rd year I raced, 5th overall my 4th year. One picture you see me behind a kawy 550 (supper street race] I would get them in the corners and try and hold them off on the straights. Laguna Seca was a technical track not a lot of straight so I did well there

RD's Only NEws

2018  July

Much has happened in 2018

My brother died in January at his own hand, I found him. Shocking to say the least.
I have had family around for the last few months; we had a great time for the 4th of July. Now back to being by myself. So a new direction I have set out on. Sell the property, sell off the RD /RZ parts I have augured and lighten up the load for moving. In the near future I will have a garage sale bikes and all. It will be a  RSVP sort of thing, It will not be a fire sale, mostly collectors or RD service folks invite.
I am hoping to have an announcement, call people that may want a few parts and or bikes soon. This process will take some time, so I am not in a hurry.
Houses in Smithville Texas take a while to sell; they are off the beat and path. Small community of 3k people, nice area has all you need to live a nice quiet life. 35 minutes away from downtown Austin, 2.5 hours from Houston, 5 hrs from Dallas Fort Worth area.. Close to COTA that is why I stayed here and property 13.98 acres, 2 ponds and lots of trees. Odd location we are in the county but have city water, electricity and garbage. Last house for city water & electrical, before county [Bastrop]. Quit neighbors a seminary across the way, 3 houses on my street. Closest neighbors are 200 yards away. Shooting range for pistols [25yrds] and long arms [175yrds] on property. Trails for the JD gator 851I to view the property and hike if you like.
After the sale I will be relocating somewhere, not sure yet [I like Texas]. Probably not to far from the track COTA. But I have an opportunity to use my Big Pig and service bikes and location that need me. That was the whole idea behind the purchase.

RD's Only  is independently owned and operated!

   I have been working  with RD's/ RZ's since 1978 39 years now. Yup I am an Old Yamaha dog, Raced a RD350B when I was young for 8 years. AFM in Northern Cali, mod-prod & supper street were my classes. I started out tuning RD race bikes, and then opened up my garage. I have rebuilt a large # of engines in the 100's. Have restored 26 bikes 6 my own, it is costly to restore.

     In Northern California I got real busy with my Business RDs Only.  I tried to accommodate too many customers and it was crazy. So now I have lots of space in Smithville TX. I can make time for every bike. I will not do as many but I feel I can do them right,   But I work on Appointment only now. due to Investor appointment and collector criteria.

   A Good Performing bike makes for Happy Customers.

Now in Texas,Give me a call or send me an email.
