1976 Honda CR125 Elsinore Moto-Crosser
Frame no. CR125M-3013154
First introduced in 1973 under the 'Elsinore' model name (like its 250cc sibling), Honda's CR125 two-stroke moto-crosser remained at the top of the class until the sport's switch to four-strokes a few years ago. The CR125 debuted in steel-framed form with air-cooled engine, twin-shock rear suspension, 'right-way-up' forks and drum brakes, ending its days in 2008 with a liquid-cooled motor, mono-shock rear suspension, an alloy beam frame, 'upside-downers' and disc stoppers at both ends. Formerly forming part of a private collection in Jersey, Channel Islands, this CR125 is somewhat unusual in that it remains substantially original and appears not to have suffered the trials and tribulations usually visited upon elderly moto-crossers. There are no documents with this Lot.
