Medeiros: Restoring a 1979 RD400 Daytona Special

I had an advertisement of this bike in my room when I was a kid. Never thought I'd ever have the opportunity to own one. These old Yamaha two-strokes are incredible! The problem is as easy as working on two-strokes may be, it's out of my area of familiarity and I found a guy!


I asked Chuck if it was ok to grab a camera and film his handywork while the bike was getting dialed in. I get hundreds of emails asking how to get in touch with Chuck. His restoration company is called Fore Play Racing in Los Gatos, California. Read more about Chuck in a recent Bike Bound article.
