Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this beautiful 1973 Yamaha RD 250 in fantastic condition and only 6,095 original miles. This Yamaha looks absolutely amazing in Butterfly Blue with a white strip and black accents.

We have this motorcycle priced to sell and are offering an excellent opportunity to own a very desirable classic motorcycle at an unbeatable value. One could easily buy this bike now and sell it for more than the purchase price in years to come as the market on classic motorcycles is absolutely red hot right now and on the rise. This is especially true for the rare examples like this Yamaha. There are very few RD 250's even on the market right now.


The exterior is in great condition. As one can see in the photos, the paint has a smooth finish and nice shine. We believe that the paint as well as the decals are original. The seat is in great condition with no rips, splits, or holes. The chrome and other brightwork has a brilliant finish and no pitting. Overall, this Yamaha looks as good in person as it does in all the photos.

This bike has no rust issues.


This Yamaha RD 250 seems to be in very good mechanical condition. It recently received some. The bike rides great and feels nice on the road. In the video one can observe the bike accelerating up to about 35mph, shifting through all the gears, braking, and going through some turns. Please note that there are no strange noised or vibrations and the bike performs quite well overall. The two-cycle engine starts easily every time. The front and rear brakes are responsive. The transmission shifts well and the shifter feels precise. Also, the engine is beautifully clean and detailed as one can see in the photos.

Everything on the bike appears to be in working order. The speedometer, odometer, and tachometer all work. All of the lights work as one can see in the video. As with many older carbureted engines this bike is a bit cold blooded, but always starts with a few kicks. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to ride this bike.


Overall, this 1973 Yamaha RD 250 is an excellent original classic bike. The beautiful original color combination, excellent condition, and the rarity make this RD 250 especially important and very hard to duplicate. The value of these bikes has gone up exponentially in recent years. They are all solid investments for a collector. One could easily enjoy this Honda for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.

Thank you for looking and please do not hesitate to email or call with any questions.
