Description

Additional photos of this Moto Carrera Del Mar Yamaha RD350 are available here for your perusal.

Based out of North Hollywood, California, Moto Carrera (no longer in business) was a specialty shop for 2-stroke sportbikes. They were probably best known for the development of some aftermarket parts (especially for Yamaha RDs) like their rearsets and Millenium GP exhausts, but their most significant accomplishment was the creation of the “Del Mar”, a limited production run of RD350-based street trackers. 11 were built over several years.

Per the Moto Carrera About Us page, the prototype bike was named after the Del Mar Concours d’Elegance. They started the build 11 days before the show, won an award, and then created a few to sell to the public. In September of 2004, Cycle World did a story about this model and Moto Carrera claims “this was the first time a custom RD had ever been featured in the 50 year history of the magazine.” Here’s a scan of the article, which notes that this weighs just 275 pounds and produces up to 65 horsepower. Original cost was about $12,000:

This example is VIN: R5117548. The seller purchased it directly from Moto Carrera fifteen years ago. The seller has put 50 miles on this bike since ownership. There is no odometer, true mileage is unknown but is estimated to be roughly 100 since the build was completed.
