I got some NOS parts from bikebandit.com and the bike is sitting in my garage waiting for a restoration. . Also need to split the cases to replace the kickstand spring (that will be a time consuming ordeal)

Old Honda XL's Rule!
I like the little Honda thumpers. I have a non-running 1970 SL-100 to restore waiting in the wings. I'd like an SL-125 too. They had the best small engine Honda ever made. The torque curve was almost flat from about 2000 to 10,000 rpm.
