This 1973 Honda TL125 was sold by its original owner in the late 1980s to a friend who subsequently performed a cosmetic refurbishment in silver and red. The bike was repurchased approximately 10 years ago by its original owner, from whom it was acquired by the seller in summer 2019. Power is from a 124cc four-stroke SOHC single, and factory equipment includes a solo seat, a side stand, a run/off switch, and a ventilated fuel cap. The top end was rebuilt under previous ownership, while more recent service included an oil change, valve adjustment, and spark plug replacement in the last six months. This TL125 is offered at no reserve with reproduction brake and clutch levers, new tires of the buyer’s choosing, a factory tool roll, an owner’s manual, and a South Carolina bill of sale.
