    Hi all!

    I have a 2003 Husky CR125 that I'd like to give a face-lift to. Is there anybody who does plastics and graphics for this bike?

    It's sweet!!

    You might want to ask Motosportz on CH. I think this is his bike.

    How about custom graphics for the older Huskys? This was Steve Lamson's race bike back in '03. It's a Fast By Ferrachi Factory machine with FB-9 stamped on the case. I was hoping I could get the original DKNY graphics duplicated or close.

    This thing is FAST! I rode the 2014 KTM 150SX last week and the Husky would blow the doors off the orange bike.....If I had the balls to keep it pinned:D

    Call Decal Works, Dan at ext. 232 is very helpful. If they have a template, he will find it!

    http://www.decalmx.com/contactus.php

    They did some stuff for my 1999 WR125.

    This guy had lots of good color plastics,

    http://motoplasticsus.com/

    Get in touch to be sure he is still in business, been a few years since I used him.

    If you want to go the extra mile, guys have adapted the last gen body stuff to the older bikes.

    I went with a vintage look on the side # plates. They would have done custom shrouds if I sent them the plastics, but they should have your style templates.

    Thats cool! MXA tested the 150KTM against the 144 Husky and the 150 had 2 horses over the 144 on the dyno.
    Nice your 125 will beat a 150.

    I like the small 2 strokes a lot in the woods,Ive stuck to the 200's so far though,3 of them since 2001.

    I haven't had it out for a trail ride and the suspension may be a bit too stiff for the woods, but if sprung properly, I bet it would be a serious weapon in the hands of a good rider.

    This bike was far from stock when I bought it and MAY have been bored out to 135ccm but I'm not sure, as I haven't had the top end off yet. It also has a power mapping switch on the bars (unheard of in 2003 I believe). Either way it's a lot faster than I'm ever going to be :lol3
