Honda's first 125cc single the CB125S first appeared in 1970 and ever since then this type of machine has been a fixture of its range, offering a combination of performance, agility, user friendliness and economy that has endeared it to successive generations of younger motorcyclists and commuters alike. Produced alongside the overhead-cam CB125, the cheaper CG came with a pushrod motor, drum front brake and enclosed rear chain, the latter a desirable feature on an everyday commuter-bike. Tested by Bike magazine in 1977, the CG recorded a top speed of 68mph and returned a staggering 103 miles per gallon!
Nothing is known about the history of this example, which is offered from a deceased's estate. Sold strictly as viewed, the machine comes with old-style Swansea V5 and two expired MoTs (issued 1990 and 1991). No reserve.
