I have a vintage fairing I intended for the RD350 I converted to liquid cooled, but the radiator interrupted that plan. Last weekend, I took a trip to Brunswick, GA to pick up this R5 frame to fit with the fairing instead. I have most of an ac engine to build from, but no idea what to do with running gear yet. I have a few front ends here to at least begin with. TBC…

The TR3 was based on the R5. The Hoyt-Clagwell was the tractor used on the "Green Acres" TV show.

Pretty funny, ain't it? HAHA. Hurco knows those dudes that made it. Had to be fun guys to be around.
 
Haha yeah when I had it, I spent a bit researching "Hoyt Clagwell Yamaha" before I realized that it likely belonged to a privateer team with a sense of humor.
