Have a chance to pick up a 96 CR125 with bent shift fork for $500. That’s all he says is wrong and the bike looks decent so I guess my question is, how hard are parts to get for this machine?

Most are available from Honda or the aftermarket. Mountains of used parts out there. Honda only made 1.5 zillion CR’s and the parts didn’t change much from 92-97 on the 125.
Rear brake spring and lower engine bolt were the only parts I had any trouble sourcing on mine, ended up buying a whole pedal for 30.00 just to get the spring. The lower engine bolt I just ordered a different part number than the discontinued one, worst case a generic hardware equivalent would have gone in.

Go onto any site that offers an OEM parts fiche with prices, and check. No pricing, no part availability. I use Honda East in Toledo, for that reason.

What he said. I ordered all my stuff from partzilla and RMMC for the same reason. Evo-mx even has graphics and seat covers. I think the Honda is easy to get parts for.

How is that particular year of 125? Handling and motor wise? Never rode a Honda two stroke only had yz125s in the 90s. Those era Honda’s sure do look cool though
Thanks for the input also guys

ronayers.com has a great microfiche system and great prices. I have used them for 15 years with good luck.

When in doubt gas it! It may not cure the problem but it will end the suspense!

1992-97 CR is very similar. Obviously tweaks every year but lots of parts interchangeability. Honda was always know as a runner and usually made the most HP every year in the magazine tests, if your into that sorta thing... I look at suspension as all equal as it's easy enough to get bad suspension fixed. Bikes of that era were all undersprung for most people (especially a fat middle aged man, myself) but nothing a suspension shop can't remedy.
I like the way Honda's handle and the headshake horror stories are greatly exaggerated and are usually the result of really bad suspension setup not a design flaw.
