I nabbed an 84 Honda NH125 today

My chinese 150 has been being a beotch and instead of putting money into it, I decided to grab this honda instead. Just a couple hundred bucks for it. Seems to run pretty well up to WOT where it bogs/surges.

I'm going to be plasti-dipping it red/black to get rid of this nasty white and blue color.

Foot break + pull the lever for parking break. At least that's how it is on my '85 CH150

Front parking brake I m guessing since honda puts them there . You could always just pull it and see if the front wheel turns. Then again doing that may be the end of everything as we know it. That level could be the one thing holding Earth in place and we then go shooting off into outer space . It s test .

This is the color I chose to replace the blue. The outside will just get a fresh coat of white. And if I REALLY get bored, I'll re do the wheels with white or pink or purple or something else retro

So, why are you painting it?

Why are you painting it?

It looks like it should for it's age, honest.

Once you spray it, it will look like something it is not.

The color you selected seems no more attractive than the current color.

I would work on the top end bog and understanding the controls and let the appearance be what it is, or chrome the entire thing, and do camo flames on it, if you can find a matching jumpsuit.

How about a pipe for it?

The paint that is on it now is not original. It was originally red. It looks like shit now. The "white" is more like the white on a smokers living room wall.

I don't know why I'm explaining myself.
