I have a lot of RZ350 spares that I’ve collected over the years, including a couple of frames without ownership, and I’ve been wondering what to do with these bits and pieces.
There are a couple of local race series here that have classes for the RZ350 so I thought I’d build one up as a track/race bike that I could run in at least one of these series. It's better than letting them sit out in the garage rotting away.
The rules state that the bike can’t be 5% more displacement over what was shipped from the manufacturer and must run the original cylinder blocks so for the RZ that 367cc so it will probably get a nice tune, carbs and pipes.
I’m allowed to run modern right way up cartridge forks so I’m looking for a set of 41 or 43mm and a FZ600 swingarm. I’m also allowed to run 17” wheels so I’ll probably run 110 front and 140 rear Pirelli race tires as they can be bought at the track. I know I could probably go 120/160 but I want to keep it somewhat nimble
I wanted to post the progress here to give me some incentive, because if I work at my usual pace it will be 2025 before its done.
