          Not to question your knowledge or anything, but, uh... the RG500 didn't come out until 1985?

                The RG racer was as collector says first seen in 1974, Sheene, Smart, Findlay raced them in GP's, in 1975 it was called I think XR45? and was full factory bike ridden by Barry Sheene, Teppi Lansivouri at GP's, in 1976 it was then called the RG500, the road bike of mid 80's was a copy for wanna be Sheene's, Mamola's etc, because Yamaha brought out their road "race copy" the RD500 for wanna be Kenny Roberts's in 1982/83?

                          Excellant photos talking about legends I spent New years eve with one of Joey Dunlops mechanics he lives in Melbourne.

                          This was when Joey was riding the Rg500 at the TT.

                          He had some funny stories.
