    New Ride??

    So I am thinking that I may pick up a 1968 CL125. It’s the parallel twin, but will need a bit of work. Does anyone own one of these or know a good aftermarket parts source?

    From what I have read the twin has more power than the thumper of the early 70's, but I haven't found a good comparison of the two.

    Does anyone know of bugs in these bikes? The wiring will be stripped down to the minimums so I am not too worried about that.

    I appreciate the feed back...as the first time I jumped into a build it was a DOHC 750 which I now regret.
    Did you hear about the pirate with two wooden legs?

    Well if there are no 125cc parrell twin owners out there are there any boards about them. I see that most people restore them and I am starting to assume that it is because they are lumps than have no decent pick up. on the other had i have been researching the late 60's ss125 which seems to be marketed to a crowed that wanted to go faster. Any imput would be helpful.
