I never even saw one of those back in the day. My initial biking career had been a short one (1974 to 1978) It was only when I was reborn to the biking world that I started to pay attention to '80s bikes

They were reasonably common.Nice yoke to ride but the heads were a bit soft.
Lack of maintainance by hamfisted owners probably didn't help.
Belt drive was a bit of a pain so lots of them were converted to chain.
Haven't seen one in years,I wonder are there any survivors?

Rd125 were a quick little bike. Many a mate got broke up on one .
The 305 were awful rubbish . Dropped valves and done cranks regular. Superdreams were better .even the old z400 twins were better

That's true, T. The 305 had a horrible record & most of them seemed to end up in a skip. The Z 400 wasn't all that bad
