thought I might aswell start this so I can keep track of everything and show you guys at the same time.

Here is my sukida sk125-2, 95% exact copy of a 70's Honda CG125...


not too pretty but I can work with it, so the plan...

larger tank - same sort of shape just taller, wider and longer
jack up the back end - either longer shocks or move the shock mounts
Round head light
Single speedo
dropped bars - ace bars
race style seat unit
short loud exhaust
cut down the wiring loom - make it simpler
move the pegs back
remove centre stand
wider rear tyre
braided hose
Remove rear mudguard
etc


Eventually:
Honda NS/R 125 forks, yokes and clip ons
Honda NS/R front brake
200 or 250 engine
and more to come

my seat unit turned up today so I took some pics



what do ya reckon?

Nice bike,I like the stock tank. I don't think it needs much. Change the bars, the instruments and go for a round chrome headlight. Different rear shocks and lose the taillight and rear signals for a smaller set-up like the standard small Lucas style.
bfd, I think that is a power bulge.

There's nothing wrong with the back shocks just want the back end higher.
The seat is a fibre glass copy, my old man got it made for me at work only cost me £5 lol
