Listing #: 144063889
This 1972 R5 has a brand new VIN, bike was this week certified and registered by VTNZ, and has a new WOF. It is ready to license with a new plate (a.k.a. rego will cost $285 for the first year).
R5 has brand new brakes front & rear, new battery, seat was rebuilt and air filter also replaced.
Mechanically the R5 is sound, she still goes like a rocket almost as quick as an RD350. Clutch & gears are good. Suspension good. The general condition is good. It is 100% complete and original. Original throttle, F/brake & clutch cables are stretched but work fine. Chrome is pretty good apart from top of F/guard, top of forks, nuts, rear wheel rim, rear springs there is superficial rust. There is no rust in tank. There is sun-fading on top of tank. I imported the R5 from Australia Feb.1998. It was licensed there 1972 til 1981. R5 has never been licensed since. Although this R5 has collector value, I would love to see it ridden & enjoyed by you! Check this blogsite later for videos of R5 http://yamahar5.blogspot.com/
The R5 is almost 40 years old. After 40 a vehicle doesn't need to be licensed continuously like most other vehicles.
