Hi Guys.........I decided to part with my other project bike......the 1968 Honda CL450.......it needed a total engine overhaul.......was not ready nor do I have time for such an extensive project.

Soooo I had a friend that needed some dough and wanted to part with his -74 Honda 125........4500 miles and in very good shape for $250.00...needs a new main jet and a rear hub for the brake adjustment mechanism.

Pics below:

Ronnie, if you decide you are going to ride that Honda be careful. They had a habit of hitting the powerband real hard and tossing unsuspecting riders onto their backsides. Voice of experience coming your way!

Ah, 70's Honda Elsinore, those were the days...:smile: Motocross changed BIG time with the new Honda Elsinore 125cc & 250cc bikes. I'd love to have one today in mint condition.

Along with what Ken said be sure the shocks are in good working shape since it's not a mono shock and you'll feel it when it lands hard...especially on the rear.

It looks like it's in pretty decent shape.

Didn't know anyone still had an Elsinore. Kick a** little dirt bike! Good score. Now if someone could tell me how to put my pets on a rotating shift schedule! Sometimes dogs and parrots are a pain!

Ronnie ... this time of year you need a snowmobile :rolleyes:

Lynn took my Elsinore over a jump once and went 40' into a creek bed ... she stayed on it and kept it upright, but it scared the heck out of her. She had some bad nasty names for that bike :smile:

I remember the Elsinore's back in my teen years. Looks good and you got it for a great price for sure.
Thanks for sharing pics. :D
