This bike was given to me for some work I did. I cant find any model numbers other than the frame number which is F210710. I would like some help to identify the year and model. I am attaching a picture.Thanks Tim

My guess mid 1965 to 1970 plus or minus. As far as CCs a view of the other side would be most helpfull.

I think it is a 1962 125-B8 model judging by the emblem on the tank, WOW that is a rare piece............too bad it is so rough.

It's a really nice oldy! If you can resurrect that motor it would make a great cafe racer project.

125 is my guess also if you have a look at the thread Mkelly posted of the Australian motorcycle museum you will find one very similiar.

It looks like there is not an inch on that bike that hasn't been touched by rust. Can you even restore something like that? Just curious.

Any thing can be restored, it just depends on the amount of time and money you want to invest. For me personally, unless It was a very rare and desirable model, I would just push it back in the garage. But I'm not seeing it in person and have been fooled, by a photo that made something look better or worse than it actually was, before.

Have a look in Mike's post of National Motorcycle Museum of Australia and go to post nine, one of the bikes in these pics look very similar.
