2015 "2 Stroke Attack" 1974 Yamaha RD400/1997 Yamaha TZ250

The “2 Stroke Attack” is a mashup of Roland Sands’s two loves: racing and building customs. It is a balanced mix of an air-cooled 1974 Yamaha RD400 two-stroke motor in a 1997 Grand Prix Yamaha TZ250 chassis. While a mix of Yamaha parts sounds a natural fit, the motor and chassis are from wildly different eras and built for totally different purposes. Sands sourced parts from World Champion Kenny Roberts’s shelves and his own pile of racing bits, and he built the fairing out of carbon fiber and the seat of hand-pounded
aluminum.
