Yeah, the bike in the OP made me smile so hard, I flew over the bars when my front tire went in a hole you could fill with a football. Funny all of the bikes I have built so far (except the monkey-R and the orange Gorilla (I called it the Orangutan - get it?)) were supposed to be for "camping" and ADV rides. I ended up building them so sweet, I could not bare to get them dirty lol.

The red bike in the OP is finally the one I will keep as a trail beater but it is I who gets beat the most. Smiling big the whole way.....

The green and white scrambler is for sale, BTW......

Was it this guy?

It's a shame the msx125 is sold for the learner rider market in the uk as if Honda sell it with a 200cc motor fitted at the show room I would by one.

I don't wont to spend 3k on the msx125 then have to by a hole new motor for it after words.

Something Chinese, no doubt. Looks damn good though, can you find seals and shit for 'em?

Not by bike name. You could measure them and order them by size. I sold the bike anyway. It was fun but it was like sitting on a 2x4 and always gave me a wicked wedgie.

I forgot to ask.Has anyone had any experience with the SSR ST125-6?I have been considering buying one for my oldest son and girlfriend to learn to ride on.$1299 delivered is hard to beat.Considering I do all my own bike work,this shouldn't be to hard to deal with.

I had a chinese CT clone once. In fact it was my first ADV mini bike. It was a 70cc and just as bullet-proof as the Honda trail bikes. I only sold it because I could not get it plated in CA.

I got that clone way back at the beginning of the 21st century in 2002. I got it like every vehicle I have ever owned (except my wifes car) - Craigslist.
