Your Collection: 1979 CR125Sunday, February 10, 2013 | 10:05 AM
This weeks collection comes to us from Mike Varsava in Canada
I bought a new 1979 CR125 when they originally came out. When I recently saw this barn find, I had to have it. It needed engine seals, a clutch, top end, chain, sprockets, grips, levers and a good bath. The tank, plastic, seat and fork boots are all original. The tires appear to be original as well. I repainted the shock bodies. The bike sounds and runs great.
I share these photos to celebrate our hometown moto-hero Cole Thompson who is railing himself a pro career in AMA MX.
