Wow, this takes me back. I learned to ride on a 74 Honda Elsinore 250. I can't imagine riding trails on that thing now, it's kind of a miracle I stuck with it.

They look like they are in amazing shape! Congratulations!

It there any story to those? Where did you get them in such pristine condition? It is amazing that the design stayed close to that form for so long across many different models. My wife has a 99 xr100 and there are many design features carried through. Beautiful bikes you are lucky. :ride:

well , the story is that this TL125 was bought new by an older gentleman and he rode it just a few times and then placed it in his hunting trophy room and it sat there untouched till he passed away , now that is good but the bad thing about these old bikes is nobody ever thinks to just pour some oil in the tank , the tank on the really nice TL is junk ! the tank on the other bike has old bad paint but is a good tank so I will do a paintjob and all new stickers on that tankand put it on my nice bike it will be nice as you can get after that !
