TL125 project

Talking to one of our neighbours and he offered me a project bike :slightly_smiling_face:


He said make him an offer, doesn’t want silly money. I was thinking 5-700. Is that too stingey?

Does it have a V5 and the missing bits. I’m guessing it’s a non runner as there’s no throttle on the RH handlebar, no brake or clutch keaver and no speedo.

If it’s ’as you see it ‘ then it’s £250-400. If it’s with documents then £400-600. It’s a TL125 and should be orange and white mudguards. Used to have one. Similar to an XL125K3

I was thinking, there’s always space for bikes and if you pre-book and miss the boat for whatever then it can become very stressful. I’m not ready to go as yet but I’d like to hear about anyone who’s done it. It also would give you a relaxed holiday if you just want to stay a bit longer on your journey.
On this side of the trip (England) it’s such a manic rat race to get to the ferry through horrible traffic in time, it might be better to get there when you get there.

@Tigcraft @Littleade No log book, it does have a vin plate and he has the lights with a number plate he thinks. Not sure if he’s had it running, I think so. The engine turns over nicely with the kickstart, he says it’s got a 150 conversion kit, the original engine is there along with coil, spare cylinder heads, brackets etc. As there is loads of spares that was my original thought of 500.

Looks like a nice project anyway.

When I was a kid we had a small Honda dealership in my town, who I got a Saturday job for😀, and I used to drool over the TL

I’d buy if it has a genuine id. If not then it’s a ‘ghost’ and only worth what it can break for.

The guy was going to dig out all the stuff so will see if we get a reg number. No rush as I don’t retire until April :smile:
