    Make your own.
    An Antifreeze jug has a favorable size and curvatures for a temporary side plate. Cut out your desired shape, punch holes in strategic locations to tywrap to the frame, paint, and install.
    They wont look like they were made in japan, but will clean up the lines a bit.
    Also if you could look at the sides off a Honda SL 125-175 of the same year model, they may fit and offer a additional avenueto search.

    I've even thought about just putting some oval universal side number plates on it ? That would look ok I think ?

    I have a TL 125 also, so I will be watching this thread for any good info.

    Anybody have an idea on how to replace the exhaust on the cheap? Mines pretty rusted out. I was thinking I should be able to find something from an older honda to fit.

    My little brother rode a TL for quite a few years in AHRMA trials.
    He did all kinds of things to it, 150 kit, then a Powroll stroker kit. Works shocks and some cut and weld on the frame.
    He had thousands in it. I always thought that it was a little silly spending that much on it, but it made him happy.
    I just remembered, the swingarm needs to be re enforced. If not the chain will fall off when you are really pounding it.

    Ok , the front number plate I ordered wont fit its to wide for trials with upside down forks , b & j racing has one that will fit im gonna order two of them , me and my son have been riding these bikes all week after work and they are fun ! I know they are underpowered and I am a proffesional bike mechanic I could hop them up but im not going to I like them just like they are im just gonna perfect them with new chains tires side plates make em purdy and enjoy them , I had these bikes as a kids I think at one time I had like 4 or 5 of them LOL I did not know what they were I just thought they were funny looking motorcycles that did not break down , I got a NOS front tire in for the bike in this thread it looks better now , im thinking about making a few trials riding play areas around here we live in va and due to the coal mining they are a lot of good riding here , I am really a hillclimber we do that a lot I have a 08 crf 450 but I really like these old vintage trials bikes ,,,, I will post more pics as I work on both these bikes ,

    I own actually a TL250 not the 125 with a none stock frame but still ways a ton (frazer honda - see thread for image) but there is loads you can do with a 125. i think it was sammy miller that was most famous for modding them and he has some bits on his website http://www.smproducts.co.uk/ hope this helps
