I know where you're coming from. I was just in the middle of swapping an ATC90 engine into my CT90 (for battery-free operation), when I found a CT70 fixer-upper that I just had to have!:rofl

I'm not sure about the early '80s XL125S; in fact I was thinking it was the same size frame as the smaller ones. But the '70s XL125 was indeed the same size as the XL185 and XL/XR200. In fact the 185...
