1974 HONDA 125 CB THE LEFTY

After a complete disassembly, the first problem to be solved was the 6v electric harness to pass in 12v …
Then, repair of the brakes, the fork, change of the rear shock absorbers, and engine control, with change of carburetor, air intake and exhaust.
I then tackled the aesthetics, recycling as many pieces as possible.
The rear light comes from one of my old Triumph speed triple, the rear mudguard from the front of an old Honda, etc etc …
I cut the N ° plates in an aluminum sheet and drew the N ° 4 with gold leaf …
I painted the old tank in three metal flakes colors Blue, white and red, with a border made with gold leaf.
I formed the aluminum plates of the headlights and the air filter and changed the tires (the biggest of the budget)
A friend made the lettering “the lefty”, and the bike was ready …
In total a budget of less than 1000 € which brought back 10 000 € thanks to the raffle tickets sold for the benefit of children …. and a guy who won it thanks to a winning ticket at 5 € !!
