1978 Honda CR125 Elsinore Restoration
1978 Honda CR125 Elsinore Project Background
Here we have a 1978 Honda CR125 Elsinore that hadn't seen action since the owner was in his teens. Buried “in my Dad’s garage” the late 70's Honda was pulled from the cobwebs to undergo a Level 2 Restoration in order to be returned to a safe operating condition. Along the way the bike received a complete cleaning and degreasing, new spokes, a new top end, carb rebuild and tune, painted engine, painted hubs, painted handlebars, painted exhaust and few other odds and ends. After the fresh top end and a good carb tune, the old girl is screaming like the day she was born.
If you're looking for the correct paint in order to restore one of these bikes, I have Honda Tahitian Red available in pints and aerosols.
