Stuart Hibberd's Honda
I have attached a few pics of a 1981, Honda CG125 which, I have just finished restoring. The bike in itself is not
particularly exciting however this one has never been used (never ridden from the day it was delivered to the
The 1 mile on the clock is the delivery mileage from Honda. The bike was delivered to its new owner who, parked it
in the garage, covered it over – and left it there for 35yrs!
The owner died 4 yrs ago and I purchased the bike from his widow. Everything on the bike – except for the front
tyre and battery, are completely original – even the spark plug.
I stripped the bike down, had components re-chromed where needed and the frame re-painted etc. The tank and seat
are in un-restored, original condition……
I renewed the oil and flushed the fuel tank, re-filling with new petrol. I kicked the bike over after restoration
was complete….and it ran like a dream!
I would like to show the bike if possible, on the VJMC stand at some future, classic bike show. Obviously, the bike
will never be used – at least not by me….
I hope the bike is of interest to some of the members.
