Yamahonda SL125

6 November 2000

Hi Rick,

Attached are some pictures of a project I just finished.

It may not look XL but in it beats the heart of an XL100 that I bought from another XL'er named Jim from an ad on your bulletin board

I mounted an SL125 barrel and head blown out with a 150 Powroll kit and had Ed Harr mount the engine and make the seat. The bike started out as a partially restored DT125A that I lost interest in because I hate 2 strokes

It has a smaller rear and larger front sprocket which gears it just about right for a small
canyon screamer, fenders are alloys from England that came without hoops or brackets so they had to be home made, as did the pipe because of the double down tubes on the frame.

In true cloning fashion I painted the barrel black and put Yamaha logos on the engine to complete the imagery.

I'll let you be the judge as to whether it's worth altering the gallery---now has fairing and speedometer and the cables have been shortened--been over 70 on this with a little left and felt very comfortable (I'm 195 lbs)-haven't got the chicken stripe clean over to the edge yet and probably never will--I'll turn 62 next week, but if I could find a jockey to ride it I might strip it down and give those two CB160's on the AHRMA circuit a run for their money.......
