    I posted a pic of this bike in the olds cool section before I saw the trials section I bought two Tl125s this one was bought new by a gentleman that put it in his hunting trophy room and never rode it much ? If at all ? It looks like it was only moved around its a time capsule type find I need to dust it off and take more better pics and yes its in my living room LOL

    How does all the rubber parts look? Did the air filter turn to dust?

    The rubber parts are good the lever boots hand grips tires are good the seat is good but its hard as a brick if you rode it the seat would crack im sure , the only two parts tbat did not make it are the tank and the little baffle they rusted , I can repair the tank but I think I will find another one , it runs great it sounds like new it has been riden a little the tires still have the red and yellow painted line on the tread so ride time is minamal I have had it two years or so need to either fix the tank or buy one I will do that next winter when im bored ,,,,

    I put the new OEM-copies from Thailand (see eBay) on my '74. They fit like the originals. The graphics' font is slightly different from the original but not by much. $65 each plus shipping. Cracked up used OEM ones usually go for more than that. Someone is asking $269 on eBay right now for a NOS one.
