    If that was mine,
    I would cut off the frame right behind the steering head and build a frame around the VIN because that motor is the only worthwhile part on the bike.
    ... thats assuming you have ownership papers for the VIN

    Is going to cost you way more money to rebuild that bike then it's going to be worth. Besides the motor and frame pretty much every other part needs to be replaced, repaired or restored

    Having just stupidly gone through this same scenario with a nearly identical CL125S [See Project Thread Here], I concur with scramblermike and TrialsRider. These little Honda singles were built cheaply, a long time ago, and designed to perform just adequately for the roadways of an earlier, slower, less congested era. Beyond costing more than it's worth, the motorcycle you will end up will be fairly unsatisfying as anything more than a nostalgic toy.

    Agreed...........................but fun to learn on.

    I'm no expert mechanic, and I'm using this and my CB/SL350 bike to tear apart and rebuild as a learning tool more so.

    So, mostly as said above a nostalgic toy, to run around the hood, and maybe back and forth to work at times.

    You guys are lucky to have such low insurance rates and lax road certification laws you can entertain fixing up an old bone like that to put on the road. Doesn't happen up here any more, is just too impractical.

    yep, here in Georgia, you don't even have to have the thing inspected.

    Just take the paperwork in, proof of insurance, get a tag, and ride away.

    But, the draw back on that is high insurance rates.

    You have no idea what high insurance rates are, up here if you were a new rider trying to insure and plate that old 125, you would be looking at several thousands of dollars annually.
