Oh sweet. I had an '89 125 back then, always loved the look of those years, very clean looking. Great project, make one a Stanton replica.

I really want to, I quit riding dirt bikes in the early 80's due to injurys mostly.
But there are so few places to ride anymore close to Seattle area I will probably rip up and down the road a few times and sell them. Restoring them is just kind of a hobby.

I can't wait to throw a leg over one of these just to see how much power these have the last dirt bike I owned was a 1980 440 Maico that I bought brand new ( I loved that bike) I owned many suzuki 400s, huskys, but never was a Honda fan back in the 70's, but I know these were great bikes. For anyone interested these will be for sale and in excellent condition when I'm done.

Well, the project moving along, got all new fork seals, powder coated the swing arm and fork lowers (super silver, metallic) swing arm bearings including pivot bearings installed. Put on a nice skid plate, installed forks, trying to decide if I like the fork boots or go without, What do you think?
That is for the 1988
Now for the 1989,
I Got A Motor, In excellent condition with one ride on the rebuild, The guy wanted to try out the sand, bought a paddle tire and smoked the clutch, so there it sat for about 5 years, Even thru in a brand new, in the box clutch. Recovered the seat, installed all new swing arm and pivot bearings on it and also had the swing arm powder coated at the same time
And now for the kicker, when I bought the motor for the 1989 the guy said he thought he could get the rest of the bike, I said let me know I would be interested, he called and for $300.00 more I got this
Including almost new black Excel Rims with a brand new rear honda hub which I really wanted but didnt think I could justify buying new, all the electronics (CDI,Coil,etc) cables, all the plastics, the tank is in killer condition, seat etc, the whole complete bike. I am so Happy

Well when you say it it sounds silly,
How can you pass up all those parts for $300.00 lots of stuff I needed to finish the other two and when I'm done I will sell one roller w/title .
Here is the shock I just finished, Glass beading and painting, and reassembling
