    This is my 1975 Suzuki RM125M . Bought it brand new when I was 15 . I worked nights at the local bowling alley after school keeping the pin setting machines working!
    It is still probably 95% original, even the grips and fork guards.
    Still runs fantastic , my friend had a 1976 Honda CR125 but he could not catch catch me on the hills . This thing handles so good. Kids these days just oogle over these old bikes when you go zipping by them - like your from outer space or something - gotta love it
    2 Strokes forever!!

    I thought that model was an RM125S, first real long travel after the TM. The next model was the RM125A that was very similar chasis wise but had a high pipe. They were a great little bike, I raced one in the olden days when they were new.

    The 1975 RM125M and 1975 RM125S were the same bike EXCEPT the "S" model had a few mods from the factory such as carb and pipe. The "S" model also stated with a sticker on the gas tank that said "S Model". The 1975 "M" and "S" models were the first RM series 125 long travel as you stated AND the only RM125 models ever made with a downpipe. From what I have read they were only about a 6 month run before the factory started on the '76 model.

    OK, I think we only got the S in Australia, haven't heard of the M.
