Hey guys. I have been pondering this for a while now. I'm building these retro race bikes- most recently my 1993 Hotwheels KX125, James Dobb replica. The #100 backgrounds from Evo-MX came out a bit funky. The numbers are a bit short and could be placed

Looks like a '95 or '96 based on the older style peg mounts. Anyway, beautiful bike. It appears sold. Somebody is a proud new owner. Congrats on a job well done!
Added reply in a thread cr125 weird idle drops down when forks are compressed ? 1/20/2017 10:27 AM
I was thinking the throttle cable too- or throttle housing. I can picture you pulling the front brake when compressing the forks, and at the same time, rolling the throttle forward. You mentioned the slide is snapping closed, so it doesn't seem likely. ... more »

Did I catch you DID NOT end up selling this bike?! Thank God! I was surprised you would sell it after all that work. Awesome bike, man. Surely one of my favorites on here.

I look forward to this build. One question though... that I'm sure we are all dying to ask. How does that frame not fall to the floor??? It is defying gravity!

I believe the forks went from 43mm to 46mm in 1996. You can probably find a '96 or newer front end and use stiffer springs. As you stated, (both '95 and '96) were known for having soft forks and a stiff shock. I resprung my '96 KX250 forks and it's a

Hey did you ever get that bike modded to your liking? Did you get a tall seat for it? If so, did you remove the stock cover? I was gonna suggest you keep the stock seat in a big plastic bag for safe keeping since they are so rare. I am also looking to ... more »

Haha I'm loving the sarcasm. So true! Good luck finding one of these, this clean, near you, and priced right. $2500 is very fair. You could part it out for double that. It would be a major sin of course.

Those look good for single digit numbers. It's unclear how wide they are, therefore might not be best for 3-digit numbers. Good to know they're available though.

The blue bottle is Propane and the yellow bottle is MAP gas. I had a hard time with the Propane in the past. The MAP gas gets hotter and works much faster. Maybe personal preference but my back would be sore after heating my pipe (on the garage floor) ... more »
