Again an other Honda at home, my 3rd.
It's a CR 125 from 1992.
The bike works well, the engine is running, it is stock and in its own juice.
I'll put it back in the original configuration and remove the horrible black painter on the tank and the airbox.
I do not know why this model is rare on the forum. Maybe she is not sexy or reliable enough?
Some pictures of the bike in my garage.

Application of the product to remove the black paint on the air box. Then sanding with the different sandpaper and to finish a little shiny plastic (no paint).

Outstanding effort. Great job on the air box. Seeing your efforts inspire me with regards to eventual clean up on my 95 250.
I would have purchased a used 92 in 250 if I could have found one relatively close to me.
Your 92 is in great shape considering it’s age. My 95 is in way worse shape.

Keep the images coming brother and if you can get shots of the products you hare using to restore then great.

I am shooting all kinds of images on my restore and such waiting to get at least one part of it finished.
I unfortunately will not have any one part that I won’t have to spend time on. Bolts and screws included.

Thanks for the images.

Awesome job so far. I just picked up a 1992 250 that has the same rattle canned tank and air box. What specific product/process did you use to remove the paint? Your air box and tank turned our great.

Thanks you guys!
The product that i use is Dumond smart strip. I have use the green for the air box and blue for the tank.
You let it dry one hour and you clean with karsher.

The swingarm link has been completely rebuilt. All bearings have been changed, bolts and nuts are new.
One of the bolts is no longer produced, I had to replace it by the same but at Suzuki.

Looking good !!

There's something happening here, what it is ain't exactly clear.

9/19/2018 11:23 AM

Looking good. I'm jealous of the tank and airbox. I've got a 92 CR500R I'm doing and those are the next two items to get to. I am really not looking forward to it smile

Thanks guys for your message! wink

I need your help: what kind of foot pegs can install instead of the orignal foot pegs who are too small? Can be adaptable from other brand like Yamaha or KTM?

I saw those there but I think they are too small like the original ones...

I’ve read in other forums that any newer yzf pegs will work.

The newer YZ and YZF pegs are a direct fit. See below:

Yeah Yamaha and KTM interchange with Honda. Not sure on the others.
