Replica Harris Yamaha TZ350 GP Lowline Special Frame Kit

We have delivered a number of these frame kits over the last two years and the customers are very pleased with the product. We have also been asked to supply a list of other engines capable of being fitted into this particular frame. At this time we have determined that all the air-cooled Yamaha R5 and RD series engines, plus the air-cooled TD and TR racing engines will bolt directly into the chassis in addition to the TZ 250/350 up to F/G models.

The RD 350 LC '81 and '82 engine, and the '83 to '89 US model RZ 350 (European RD 350 LC YPVS) engines, will also fit the frame with new engine mounts supplied.

Following are photographic details of two CMR kit bikes, complete with a step by step assembly of one of them.

Here the stock Yamaha TZ350 seat has been fitted, and the footrest assemblies. The footrest plates are aluminum 6061-T6 and are available upon request when ordering a kit. We have found that TZ riders come in all shapes and sizes, and adjustable footrest positions are a welcome addition.

This bike is fitted with Dave Swarbrick's latest expansion chambers for this model ( They came as a kit and have been installed by CMR Racing for maximum clearance.

Also shown fitted is the optional under-slung rear brake caliper and brackets.
