I do love the total vintage look its got ..a shame that the big money that buys this will prob be a hipster's and they will just screw this bike and its history..:(

I'm hoping it gets cleaned up, made to run again and put on display somewhere as is I love the "AMA Tech Inspection" sticker and the safety wiring. It would be a great vintage race bike.

It didn't meet reserve at $12K. Not worth that to me unless it had some famous race history by a known racer. The mere fact that someone raced it is not enough to make it that collectible.

Its collectable in that it is complete and unmolested. But they made a lot of those 125s. I bet not many are still complete. 12K is steep.

as I read this, its said to be a production racer...

I take a production racer mean's it was assembled by the factory in limited numbers with a minimum number sold off to the public to meet a santioning body's requirement's of racing a production run bike...

I'd bet they likely saved the very best of those just for their teams ..it's still definatly a rare bike..

So in comparison to your thought CafeRay2 ,your saying an original production racer 64' thunderbolt isn't worth alot of money,just because they built alot of fairlanes ?????
:rolleyes:

As was said above,would be nice to know what races it ran, if it placed and who by...
