You might consider spending less on a camera body and budget some money for better lenses. But you can certainly use those lenses on an R5 with the adapter(s). Those are smaller lenses at least.

I have had good results with my lenses on the EOS1000 body.

Alas, a 45 megapixel sensor will show in great detail all the flaws of those lenses. Which you hod not seen in full as you only ever saw the center portion of the image they produce, and with a fairly low density sensor at that.

I've never been in a position to splash out on camera gear in the past. Enjoying it now, I have the time to devote to a hobby I like, and have enough spare cash to spend on better gear.

It's all good. Make sure to enjoy using it. Have fun with it.

And buy an RF lens as soon as possible.

Even the cheapest, most pedestrian RF zoom will demolish those old lenses in terms of image and build quality. Canon RF 24-105mm f/4-7.1 is $400. And Canon RF 24-240mm f/4-6.3 IS USM, which is $700 would easily replace all of your old lenses and still provide better quality, on top of more zoom range at both ends.

Demolish??? Nope I found that the difference is not worth 2k between ef and rf for top quality Ef lens. So sorry to be popping dream bubbles or sales and profits.
Try a $400 (ebay) 80-200mm f2.8 from 1989 and prepared to say wow! or spend 3k for an rf 70-200mm. GEAR HEADS will not agree but that is now more incredible lens than ever when used correctly than anything in the same range of 70-200mm.
