1971 Honda SL125 K0 #1

VIN# SL125S-1027772

Strato Blue Metallic

This bike is absolutely stunning.  I started with a VERY NICE original one owner bike with absolutely no rust whatsoever and I saved everything on the bike.  I did put an NOS exhaust system on it as the original had a very slight ding in it.  You would not be disappointed in this bike.  I bought it from an individual that worked at a Honda dealership in the early 70's.  He stated that he bought the bike brand new in '73 after it sat in the showroom for almost 2 years.  Honda registered a bit over 31,000 SL125 K0's and this serial number indicates that it is one of the later ones in the production run.  Of the colors available on the K0's, this Strato Blue is the best (IMHO), and my painter went to a tremendous amount of trouble to match the paint exactly.  I had a great bike to work with as the original color wasn't faded at all, and just had the normal wear and tear with minor scratches.  I haven't started this bike since the rebuild, but I drove it around the neighborhood quite a bit before teardown and have no doubt that it will run again when required.  It is almost too nice to drive.  This was the first SL125 that I restored so I took tons of pictures on disassembly.

 

Restoration started  11/07/04

Disassembly complete, parts at chrome shop, frame painted, reassembly started 11/16/04.

I took tons of pictures on disassembly of this bike.  It was 100% all original and only had 1400 miles on it.  Thought it might be helpful for some to see how things were on this bike.

Restoration completed 12/29/04!!!!
