Your Collection: 1979 CR125Monday, December 10, 2012 | 1:00 PM
This weeks collection comes to us from Mick Varsava in Canada.
I bought a new 1979 CR125 when they originally came out. When I saw this barn find, I had to have it. It needed seals, a clutch, top end, chain, sprockets, grips, levers and a good bath. The tank, plastic, seat and fork boots are all original. The tires appear to be original as well. The bike sounds and runs great. I share these photos to celebrate our hometown racer Cole Thompson who is railing himself a pro career in AMA SX & MX.
