I'm listing this lovely old 1975 HONDA SL 125 for an elderly friend. who has no internet. It was purchased for him. by his son. as a retirement present in May 2000. (That now makes him 79)  He has now decided he dosen't want to ride a motorcycle on the road again. so he's asked me to sell it for him. It was last on the road in 2009. and has sat in his garden shed ever since.   I collected it from him. fitted a brand new battery. gave the points a brush up and flushed out the old petrol and it started. I have to say. it runs very well. I rode it up the field and the clutch and all the gears work fine. The engine is dirty and oily. i didn't want to clean it up. as I wanted to list it in an honest state and not a tarted up. This could be a nice winter restoration project. or i don't think it would take a lot. to get it through an MOT as is. I did notice the rear shock absorbers have no damping. so they will need to be replaced. All in all. considering it's age. it's not in bad condition. the seat has been gaffa tapped up. and could do with recovering as can be seen in the pictures. The other thing with it. is the kick start spring has broken. it was like this when my friend got it and someone has done a temporary repair. by fitting a spring on the outside of the engine. as seen in the engine picture. this seems to work well. (A new spring is supplied. with the bike). nbsp;So to recap. HONDA SL 125 1975. Been off the road since 2009. Restoration project. Nice runner.  NO MOT OR ROAD TAX. NO BUY IT NOW. AUCTION WILL RUN TO THE END. Thanks for looking. any questions please email.  If you wish to inspect before bidding. you are more than welcome. Sorry to have to say it. but due to being messed about before. if you have feed back of less than 10. please get in contact before bidding. CASH ON COLLECTION.
