Hi guys I am in the process of building this 125 I’m trying to build a GP bike from the 2004 - 2005 era if anybody is aware of any parts I would love to hear from you I’m in desperate need of some seat covers.

Thanks

A friend of mine worked for the GP team back then, think I still have a silencer & skid plate, possibly a couple of other bits that he got me for my 04. But no seat sorry.

Oh and a complete unused manual, bag and tools etc you got with a new bike

This thing will be sweet when it’s finished.

I would be interested in the skid plate if callum isn’t of course.

I've got a set of actual 2004/5 works MXGP 52mm forks for that bike. Just like these. They are era correct and in all likelihood, due to their uniqueness, probably one of the actual forks used or a set of factory spares. If you pull pictures of the 125/250 MXGP and some USA Factory guys of those years and look carefully at the front brake caliper lugs (the most noticeable difference of many), you can see the uniqueness of these particular forks. That and the matte grey boron nitride lower tube coating.

They're not cheap, however.

That’s cool Mark. Have you got the factory triple clamps with the magnesium top clamp for them? I’ve never seen any around except for old photos of the factory bikes.

Unfortunately no. I've got several sets of 52s from various years and none of the lower triple clamps worked with these particular forks. The outer tubs were significantly smaller in dia compared to the later versions, factory or not, requiring a custom machined bottom. Since these were designed and made for the factory 125 and 250s I suspect they were concerned about weight and too much rigidity on these super lightweight bikes.
