I had 4 of them. 2 '73's, a '74 and a '75. This one in the photo was my '74. It was my favorite. Was built by Honda of McAllen, Steve Wise dad's shop. Steve worked with me back then and helped me win a NMA Championship on this bike.

The same guys that built Steve's CR125 that he used to win the Maryland AMA national in '76, built this bike. Wish I could remember the motor work they did. Below is a list of things I do remember...

-22mm carb
-Banke Exhaust
-Foward mounted Koni shocks
-UNI levers
-K&N air filter
-Motor work by Ray Byrd and Jimmy Straight from Honda of McAllen.

Loved my K0. Went to Yamaha when the YZ80A came out. Had a modded '77 K4 for the 4 stroke class. Another great bike.
