2000 Honda CR 125 for 350€

Recommended Posts

Ok i just contacted a guy that is selling a 2000 Honda cr 125, for 350€. I asked him what is wrong with it , and he told me he told someone to rebuild his top end, and when he put the rings in, he didn’t align them with the ring pins, so he rode it a couple of times, and the engine just collapsed. He told me that there is something wrong with the power valve as well(one of the power valves is broken or something, I will call him tomorrow ). Is it worth the money? A remade cylinder will cost me around 150€ and the piston and rings another 100€. Is it a good deal or should I run away?

Just remember, cheat is not cheap, look for something that is running and in better shape.

Buddy that’s not even close to a 2000 cr maybe do some research next time you don’t want to get into something like that?

You are anticipating that only a new top end is required, but with the mechanical imagination of the current owner:

electrical wiring chicken wired to the frame, the exhaust pipe hose clamped to frame, air hose as fuel line and, 

a missing carb overflow line, one spoke missing on the front wheel and, just about every spoke bent on the rear wheel etc.

that leaves the true condition of the bottom end, internals and everything else very questionable.

 

As suggested in your RM topic, save up until you can afford a bike that's already in running condition,

meaning able to test ride it and confirm the clutch, gearbox and brakes etc. are fully functional.

Consider a non-running bike like this equal in value to buying a box of parts,

not knowing if you have every piece needed complete the puzzle until the end of the project.

 

500$ bikes usually end up needing 1000$ in parts to make them semi-reliable,

sometimes used parts which may be hard to find in this case (out of production).

Better to invest the 1500$ in a better/newer bike. Wrench less, ride more.

Much like your RM thread, no, no, NO.

That is not a 2000, or anywhere close. Maybe 1990, or late 80's. Just Google pics.

And it's wasted. A rat. Junk. You'll have $1500+ into it to try and make it mechanically functional, IF you can even find parts.

Save up, and get a bike in decent condition.

Are those euro figures for these bikes? 

What country are you in? Prices for even rat traps such as these can be dramatically different and worth more simply due to an incredibly small supply in various countries. You absolutely have the years of manufacture incorrect. This plays an even more important role in assessing value.

That Honda which looks to be a 90 model is worth little. Why does he have images of the bike together as if to sell it but then he has images of the cylinder?

This is a late 80's model CR125. In terrible shape, and will need thousands of dollars to have a decent bike..

Listen to some of the post above and stay away from this POS terd.

Hey orange ,  all those Honda 's ,, how did you end up with a     Kturd man  ?

Lol, needed a race bike with a tag, so I had a Orange Crush on a 2016 KTM 500 EXC 6 Days. that was my first KTM. and my first 4 stroke.

But i have an addiction to 2 smokers and cant let go of my need to be on the pipe.

I started with and  will never give up on my Honda's though.

I got a 1994 Honda CR250R im slowly rebuilding , that was my 3rd dirtbike I ever owned.

My favorite bike is my 2001 Honda CR250R that I ride the most., got that a couple years ago and gave it a make over on everything but motor/trans cause they were strong already.

I have a sweet 1998 Honda CR500R that collects dust. NOT FOR SALE!!!!

 A 2004 Honda CR125R that I bought last year from the original owner who had low hours on it, i really only cleaned the carb, and repacked the silencer, because the top end was fresh, so she's is ready to have her ass beat this season.

Also had for awile a 2001 Honda XR100, and a 2002 XR70, those are my pit/playbikes. 

Also had for awhile a 2002 Suzuki DR650, that collects dust.

Last year bought a 2016 Kawasaki KLX110L for my grandson, green is his favorite color. I tried to get him on a red Honda but no luck. Lol. This bike was a Ryder Lafferty pit/playbike from the famous Lafferty enduro dynasty of the east coast. Mike Lafferty is his uncle and 8 time AMA National Enduro champion, so this bike is not being sold. Look for Ryder in the future as he is one very fast teenager. Ryder Lafferty is in the Pro class of the AMA National Enduros and he is sponsored by Husqvarna. 

I'm soooooo ready for a Honda to build a CR300, but that will never happen, so im looking to get a Husqvarna TX300, probably wait for the 2020 model, unless they ditch the carb and go TPI, then I will get the 2019 TX300 carbed.

Although I would like to try a YamahaYZ125 with SSS suspension, and that should round out my collection.

I have only sold 3 bikes ever I'm my life.  a 1986 Honda CR125 which was my first bike,  A 1990 Honda CR250R, My 2nd,, and a 2006 Kawasaki KLX 50 my grandson first bike that he grew out of.

I'm a Lifer.

Plan on spending a few hundred on repair or replace of those unprotected (read nicked) fork tubes. They'll always leak otherwise.

Here's some model info that was found with a TT search:
