1977 Honda TL125 Trials Motorcycle
Registration no. SSA 237R (see text)
Frame no. TL125S 1014417
Engine no. TL125SE 1014425
Powered by an all-alloy, single-cylinder, four-valve engine, Honda's first proper trials machine - the TL125 - first appeared in 1973 and under the guidance of off-road maestro and many-times British Trials Champion, Sammy Miller, was developed into a competitive mount for the clubman. Production continued until mid-1978. Purchased by the current owner in February 2016, this TL 125 last ran in the summer of 2019 and will require re-commissioning before further use (carburettor cleaned, fresh fuel, etc). Noteworthy features include a special tank/seat unit and a special exhaust system, and the Honda comes with some spares to include a tank; kickstart; larger rear sprocket, etc. Described by the private vendor as in very good condition, the machine is offered with a quantity of expired (daylight) MoTs; an HPI printout; and a V5C Registration Certificate. The vendor is slimming down his collection of motorcycles, hence the sale. Please note this machine was exported from the UK. Accordingly, the successful purchaser will need to re-apply to the DVLA for the Vehicle Registration Number. Prospective bidders must satisfy themselves as to the validity of the Vehicle Registration Number prior to bidding.
