For CB 125 frames or bikes with shot motors i got a really clean motor and carb setup for nothing and it will sit in the "rebuild" bag till i find a frame or roller for it.

thanks guys

also to broaden my scope.. do these 125 motors bolt in to the 175 CL's and CB;s i remember reading somethign along those lines?

basically what frame and motor mount positions does the early 70's 125 share with?

the singles are a beast on to themselves. CB,CL,SL,XL,TL 100cc and 125cc all swap with little work. the charging system is different as well as there internal gears.
what motor do you have? im looking for a 2 piece head XL125 motor or a latter XL125R CDI motor

There is the right way, the wrong way and the british way to do anything!

hey jaguar if i post a pic can you tell from that?
i really dont know what i have and haventstarted my internet resarch abut them.. i know its an early 70's 125 motor. and it has 4,600 miles on it. It is freshly cleaned up and most bolt on stuff is replaced..
So the CL 175 roller i found wont accept this motor without modification??? cause its got a title and is in great shape and real cheap...

i dont know what to do to be honest... do you suggest an y sites for facts on the 125 motors? . but i will keep looking for rollers so i can throw this motor into something and waste more money.

The 125 motor is considerably smaller than the 175, so it should fit without too much problem. I bet it is simply a matter of motor mount plates and spacers. I would get the 175 chassis for the wheels and forks and bodywork even if you find a 125 chassis later. Get it and give it a try.
