Up for auctioin is a sweet original 1985 Suzuki RM 125!!!

I found this bike in a barn in Troy, AL about 4 months ago and brought it back from the dead. It was all there just needed some love. The motor was COMPLETELY rebuilt from top to bottom, rebuilt crank, new crank bearings/seals, new Suzuki piston and rings and all new gasket and seals direct from Bike Bandit. There is not one leak on this engine, no oil, no water and it runs super sweet, i am 200 lbs and the front end will come up in first and second gear no problem.

Aside from taking it apart down to every nut and bolt and cleaning absolutely every part, I replaced the throttle housing, throttle cable, clutch cable, clutch plates, front brake pads, rear brake shoes, rebuit front master cyliner from a 1990 RM125, new chain roller, new grips, new levers, new forkseals and a new seat cover from Vintage Suzuki . If you look at my feedback over the past 4 months you will see many of the parts i have purchased for this restoration. I thought about buying a new set of plastics but i just cleaned up the orginal ones as best i could.

This bike is not perfect of course and it is almost 30 years old but it runs awesome, sounds awesome and just needs a new home; too many projects in the garage. I dare say this is a one kick bike, if not one then two!!! It has original gold rims in good shape, the spoke have surface corrosion but are all there and solid. Pretty good rubber front and back too, back tire is near new.
