    Nice looking bike. Stock bars were steel. Looks like the frame has been cut, front end is tucked in. Was the correct mod besides cutting out the down tubes on the frame. Looks like a keeper. Wish I could find my last one! (Or at least the frame).:D

    The Solid alum. bars are a factory Option, the frame is stock I just raised the tubes in the top triple tree 5/8 in as suggested in my factory manual. I own a parts motor and been thinking about taking it and punching it out to a 305. Shes a fun old bike to ride! when I sold it the first time it was all sunrise Red. the frame should be gun metal gray and when winter rolls around again I will paint it correct, or close anyway..
    Ya cant tell about me I build choppers it could be flamed and muraled!!
    need to order me some new shocks but the old ones are in good shape.
    Im glad you liked it.

    Nice bike. Looks like ODI Mushroom grips. I've only ever seen those on BMX bikes.

    We are down a little bit from what my mother "exclaimed" as she visually inventoried the 29 miscellaneous cycles, plus 7 watercraft. LOL.

    We had a pair and a parts basket, But, we sold the 2 honda tl250's and all the spare parts, just about 6 months ago. OF course mother was not happy that these 2 were replaced by at least 3 yamahas...

    We did do the mod to steepen the rake on ours, and damn, it sure changed the bike to more modern turning, at least a little. We still have 2 125's, one is bone stock, the other has had a lot of "improvements" you cannot believe it is a 125. But it still is a heavy dang pig, lol, riding these take your breath away, the old fasion way (works your ass off) :lol3

    That is a good shot of the modified 125, Dad, and me I guess. That 125 has a high dome piston from some lot more late model multi-cylinder honda street bike, which fits rod and stroke just right. and we didn't have to do a lot of machining on the cylinder, more or less just bore it a little, from (my) memory of when gathering up the parts to do this, quite a while back I might add.

    FWIW, there was talk early on in this project about a 175/or so kit, but I guess there was a lot of trick machining to be done on original cylinder/head all that, or find bigger bore cylinder/head and adopt it to this bike. As you can see, we'd opted to just do this simpler mod, for a "rider" bike. Very happy with how it runs, more than a 125... If you like 4 strokes.

    Dad thinks he got the weight down, removing stuff that is not essential (some was done by previous owner, from MWTA. so giving credit). We changed the rake on the front. BTW, It still has a kickstand, but you can see much other non essentails are gone. It now weighs to something like 170 (he had it wrote down but we cant find it, so figure +- 5 pounds, simply because I didn't believe him when he said he thought was in the 160+ lbs range...) LOL trying to keep my credibility if I post that, you know...

    I usually forget to smile, then regret the shot, this time I might have overdone the smile though... It was windy as hell, and he never said "cheese" lol... Sigh.
