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.

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.
