Barn find TY175

So I picked up this gem today for the sum of a case of Coors Light. It's pretty complete but rough. The good thing is the motor turns over and seems like it has OK compression and it will shift through the gears. Are these 5 speeds? Also the shift shaft is loose, and I am confused about the the splined shaft right below it- looks like it comes through the frame? Also it appears the swingarm has been lengthened very crudely. I have a Bultaco Sherpa T for competition, but thought it would be fun to fix this one up. One of the guys I ride with has one and he does really good on it. Any comments or opinions appreciated.
