Default RD7 Ride Along

Family owned RD7 which we might start working on in the next year or so to get back into better condition.

We haven't had her running for probably 3 years before this so decided to take it for a spin. Lots of work to do in future.

I would have hated to be the guy whose head put that dent in the air cleaner hat...

Good old Cat, BTW. Like the sound of a D7...

Just a brilliant old machine, seems it only needs some cosmetic work. Regards,
