pursue your own interests and dive into the secrets of motorcycling...

 shinya added a CB125 to his hobby machine collections... CB125 was the one of his first motorcycles that he had customized by himself when he was still a student. he put suzuki tank, made a seat out of a cutting board and painted in metallic pink back then :) "wasn't that much custom custom but i loved it and people liked it, too," shinya recalls.


 nothing works on this bike right now but shinya says it's perfect for his hobby project :) it'll be super exciting if he can make it running.


 checking out the differences between the CB125 and the XL100 that he recently restored.




 and checking.

Probably won't be long before he's pulling wheelies on that one. I've got one of those, but it lives in boxes. The shop foreman at the shop I used to work at, had one he commuted to work on. The first thing he did was remove the odd 'splitter' plate in the intake, and jet it up. It was real lean from the factory. I gotta admit it seemed to make a big difference in power.
