A few years ago I bought a '72 TS125 that was in great shape except for a JB welded, cracked case. I ended up getting perfectionist on it and rebuilding it into some new cases. I'm glad that I did. It's probably the best running 2-stroke that I've ever ridden. Not the fastest, but it just runs perfectly from idle to redline.
