No motorcycle of recent times has achieved ‘cult’ status to the same extent as Yamaha’s legendary ‘LC’. Launched at the Tokyo Show in 1980, the RD250/350LC marked the introduction of water cooling to Yamaha’s range of potent middleweight two-strokes while also bringing mono-shock rear suspension and – in the 350’s case – twin disc front brakes to the package for the first time. Water-cooling had been a feature of the Hammamatsu firm’s TZ racers for some years and the family resemblance was obvious. The LC was relatively inexpensive, endearing itself to impecunious younger riders whose high-street stunts rapidly established the easily wheelied LC’s ‘hooligan bike’ credentials. The availability of noisy expansion chamber exhausts and a host of other tuning accessories – some of dubious merit – only served to further enhance its ‘bad boy’ image. Unfortunately, these kinds of antics and press reports of ‘100mph 250s’ didn’t go down too well with the UK authorities, which henceforth restricted learners to 125s.
