Thanks, tell your wife the 125cc is a big motor compared to this little bike! LOL Chopper mama. VVvvrrrooommm. I hope she gets one!
I wanted a side car but with such a little bike I would be able to take one Dachshund for a ride at a time without over load! LOL Laughing talk about miniature. Imagine how little the side car would be... like a clown car! jocolor lol!

That is what I would consider a re-manufactured gearbox, which is far better! Next power steering is in the plans! Just getting the steering box rebuilt would be great enough, with the added power steering upgrade, I am set for some easy steering and turns that will be smooth not like a wrestling match!

So it seems the seat from over seas will not arrive until maybe July? Ok floating across on a raft I assume.  Rolling Eyes
Anyway I am not able to wait to sit on the bike until July. So I took the old seat frame as broken and old as it was and resurected it into a usable temporary seat. I had all the materials around the garage so it was no cost, at least. Not perfect, bit it will have to do until the ral seat comes. cheers

I had to wait for the new exhaust stud nuts and the new accelerator cable. Now I need a new screw for the handle perch a 8mm Philips. The nuts and bolts are specific to the Honda, but I did find some at the hardware that worked for a couple areas. But by Tuesday, I will have everything I need and can attempt the first kick over. I put the carb back together and new fuel lines and a little filter between the tank and engine. Gas is in the tank and I have the Honda oil to put in on Tuesday! The headlight worked, it and the tail lights have new bulbs, I am getting a new brake light switch too. The key switch is not a perfect fit so I am figuring a good way to hold it into place without drilling a hole. I have to do the wiring and get the old new wires married. I am no electric motorcycle mechanic! LOL affraid so I have been stalling a little!!
I have only the ability to try.  Colors are colors, and I can attempt the rewire of the simple 4-6 wires. I bought new butt connectors and that will be on Monday's to do list.
Remember this bike was a 30+ lost cause, that no shop would even consider fixing for $$$ money! LOL
I am excited and apprehensive as I put it together myself with no real mechanical knowledge.
So when it gets started next week, I will feel like a "winner, winner chicken dinner". Arrow

Nothing motivates more than someone telling you it can’t be done for a reasonable amount of mula $$$...I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you that Tuesday is successful! Good Luck next week! Twisted Evil What a Face
