A very nice Yamaha R5 from last years local show.

From my “Riding Into History” archives. If I could drop 40 pounds something like this would probably be my daily rider.  Love the radial heads.




  1. I have a question. Are those heads factory?

    I did a few searches on the model and only found very square looking heads, not nearly so cool.
    Wiki mentioned that there was a factory race model. Perhaps these are from that version, or an aftermarket?
