Got the 125 motor turning over was just seized from sitting little oil around the rings and light tapping with a hammer on the kick starter and boom! Sprayed the kick starter with Gibbs it now functions and pulls itself in towards the bike properly pulled the spark plug out plugged the wire in and put the plug to the cylinder head spark ! Betcha clean the carb new tires throttle & clutch cables it'll start but me and the nephew are gonna hold off till after the chp visit in a month then do it the right way
