Honda's long line of successful off-road models commenced in 1972 with the launch of the SL250 trail bike, though the nomenclature soon changed to the more familiar XL250. The XL's single-cylinder four-stroke engine was typically Honda, being an all-alloy, four-valve unit, and this was housed in a robust cradle-type frame. The company's first proper trials machine - the TL125 of 1973 - was constructed along similar lines and under the guidance of off-road maestro and many-times Trials Champion, Sammy Miller, was developed into a competitive mount for the clubman. Production continued until mid-1978. This TL 125 comes with Honda (UK) dating letter confirming its year of manufacture and importation and the fact that it was originally fitted with engine number '1133721'. 'KWU 676N' has covered only 1.2 kilometres since restoration and is presented in commensurate condition, though in need of re-commissioning prior to further use. The machine is offered with the aforementioned dating letter and Swansea V5C document. (It should be noted that the engine number is incorrectly recorded on the latter). No reserve.
