'75 CB125 "Pea Shooter"
This little bike has been fun to tinker with. My brother bought it from the original owner during one of the first gas crunches. Rode it for a year and then it made it's way into many basements and garages over the next decade. I got it a few years ago.
The tank is from some British single, I got the seat on ebay, the bars from one of my flattrackers. It passed a state inspection. Tires are oversize universals.
The gas tank leaks a bit, the carb could stand a cleaning, sometimes hard to start cold after it's been sitting but once you get it going it starts first kick.
Fun bike to ride. Could be a good vintage racer too.
