I bought a brand new '69 125. Great bike, fast, light, more power than any other 125 available then.

But:

Woodruff key holding the mag rotor on the shaft split repeatedly.
Condenser mounted under same rotor would overheat so if you stopped the bike on a hot day after a hard ride it would not start for an hour.
