1979 Yamaha RD 400 Daytona Special

Went to the Troy Lee/Moto Lab show yesterday and saw a lot of killer vintage bikes. One in particular was this Yamaha Daytona Special. I had one back when they were new, the sound they make is unmistakable and I heard this thing coming from three blocks away! Not the best handling bike ever, not the best brakes either. But is wasn't uncommon to leave a bike, with twice it's CCs in the dust, on the rear wheel. If you've ever ridden one, you know what I'm talking about. They were a blast to ride!
