Hey, I'm new here....well.. I used to be on when I had a CB450 a year or so ago but had to sell it before it came to any substantial fruition....
Anyway. Just scored a 74' CB125. <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
Will post pics later.....
I have a few other projects around but needed something that is actually ridable. Scored it on the cheap, has never been registered, only riden on trails so it should not be an big issue getting papers me thinks. It still has chen shen knobbies! Had it up to about 35 on the street and boyyyyy was that odd.

If you guys can post pics of cafe 125's I would appreciate it... I searched and could not find much.

welcome. I don't really have anything to add here except that we ask any new people to fill out their location in their profile. This way we know where you live and can come over rape your pets, put boogers in the skippy jar, make long distance phone calls to places on homeland security's "Watch" list , you know the usual. And if your motorcycle is there we will occasionally look at it and try to help you fix it too.

anyway, welcome once again and I hope you have a good sense of humor.

I don't know if you are old enough to know about this (I know I am not) but....

there is a frank zappa song entitled "Titties and Beer" and for some reason your name reminds me of that song (must be the ...and beer part)

quote:Blow it out your ass, motorcycle man! I am fhe Devil,
Do you understand?
Just what will you give me for your titties and beer?
I suppose you noticed this little contract here, . ''

hehhehe I actually just recently heard Dweezle on NPR talking about the tour he is doing now covering most of Frank's stuff with most of the original musicians that toured with Frank. Really cool to hear that guy talk about growing up in that house....

Pics from tonight.. Yeah I know about the obvious crap that is wrong :) Runs like a top though <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
From what I have heard the side covers alone are nearly worth what I paid for it total.... could be bad info though.

anyway.. I'll get some parts this weekend... need some bars, mirrors, tires, fork rubbers... seat but I can fab a cafe seat... etc

nice to see another 125 owner. i have 2. one is a cafe and the other is a stocker. doing alitte land speed racing with the cafe i hope. there are a few pics of a very nice CB125 cafe on this site under the pics heading.
if you looking for hop up parts you need to find guys that ride the XLs they are mostly "down under" but love those little motors.
good luck


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