Yamaha YR 5350 in Movies

Its not a RD Yamaha. Its could be a YDS7 250. But the colours match the sales brochure that I have for the YR5 350. Del of the aircooled RD club.

1970 Yamaha DX250 - according to this site http://www.motorcyclespecs.co.za/model/yamaha/Yamaha_dx250%2070.htm Or it might be an RX350. http://home.san.rr.com/fujii/motercycles/old_motercycles/rx350.jpg Being the USA it might be the larger model. This was called a Yamaha R5, I believe. In late 60's thru 70's this two-stroke twin 350 had different model names; R5 thru R5C, then RD350 in 73, RD350A in 74, and on just changing the last letter every year up thru the alphabet. When they became liquid-cooled later, it changed to RZ350.
This is a long shot. And if I'm violating any site regulations here, please advise - I am a member of the Ian Fleming Foundation (www.ianflemingfoundation.org), which maintains an extensive collection of, and archive related to, vehicles used in the James Bond movies. We would very much like to get in touch with poster Jonnyboy, who posted a comment on this page on 2009-05-21, and on the same day posted a comment on the page for the Lincoln Mark VII used in the movie "Licence To Kill". We are trying to track down any of the Lincolns used in that movie. If Jonnyboy happens to read this page, or if anyone knows him and can inform him of this comment, he can contact me at BondVehicle@gmail.com. Alternatively, a comment can perhaps be posted here and we can correspond that way --- I'll be checking this page periodically. Thanks!

Yamaha RD350 from the '70s.

Used in the series opening credits only. Yamaha RD200? RD200 never came in that colour scheme, or had a twin downtube frame, it's either YDS7 or YR-5 350, being USA my money's on the 350. The show was Australian. Here's another shot:
Still a YDS7 or YR-5, very difficult to tell the 2 apart, colour schemes vary for regions etc but it's a 1972 model in Mandarin Orange and deffo twin downtube frame so not a 200. I think the 250cc YDS7's came a lighter shade called Candy Orange, which was more Gold than Copper.
