This 1974 Honda CB125 reportedly had a single owner before being donated to the Petersen Automotive Museum four years ago. The bike is equipped with a 122cc 4-stroke single paired with a 5-speed transmission, but has not been started or inspected by the museum and its running condition is unknown. This CB125 shows approximately 3,100 miles and is sold with a clean California title.

The CB125 was only available in Candy Topaz Orange for 1974, and this example wears factory-style decals and emblems. The right side cover shows a different hue, the seat cover has a split seam, and the chrome exhibits pitting. Several reflective decals and a period tail rack were added by the previous owner.

Upgrades for 1974 included a mechanical front disc brake instead of the previous year’s drum setup. Chrome wire-spoke wheels wear older tires that should be replaced due to age.

Instrumentation consists of a 12k-rpm tachometer, an 80-mph speedometer, and a 5-digit odometer showing just under 3,100 miles. The bike retains original-style grey control cables, while photos indicate the clutch lever is broken.

The air-cooled 122cc overhead-cam single originally produced 17 horsepower and is linked to the rear wheel through a 5-speed transmission and chain drive. No mechanical inspections have been made under current ownership, nor have any attempts to start the engine. The bike is currently registered on Planned Non-Operation status in California according to the seller.
