These R5's are a rather rare breed.You are right .It is basically the same as a rd350.The tire is stock.There are a few things that need fixing.
You guys have good eyes.The rear tire is flat.that might be why it looks bigger.Missing the hoses between the carb and airbox.Kind of a hard part to find.I suppose with all the different products one could find a hose to go between the carbs and the box.They were missing when I got the bike.Or put open pods on.But taking out that airbox is a *****.
I have no paperwork on it either.Regardless it is going on ebay tonight.It will have a very fair reserve.My ebay id is conesuscats if you want to follow it.
I love the color also,and if this bike gets a 100% inspection and on the rd it would be a blast.
They make awsome vintage racers also.
Note, it doesn't have turn signals.Doesn't even have wiring.Just the holes.The rear holes for the signals are still encased in factory plastic protectors.
I looked up the vin num.They started with 101 ended 13,0000,this is 1st year production right in the middle.
It will find a good home.
Thanks for the positive.
You guys are all right.
