Just dropped a low ball bid on this gem ive kind of wanted one for ages my son wants one and my daughter has been actively looking at them as a learner bike.

Scored for $370 seems very cheap for a 2016 appears to be missing a muffler but otherwise complete and tidy..... of course ive not seen it other than on trademe.

Watch this space. Will be a spruce up service and rock scissors paper to see who keeps it.

It runs, throttle was 80% jammed pulled cable out flushed it with CRC and it freed up. Discovered why it got parked it's out of gas and the key doesn't fit fuel cap.....

Second bike now with same issue.

It'll basically be good to go as is once I find an exhaust. Even the battery is sweet everything works.

Petrol stinks so not going to persevere till I sort fuel cap and get fresh stuff in.

How i extract the old one will be an issue for weekend Dave. 

The place this bike had a few gn125s I bet someone has swapped fuel caps with one of other bikes. I really don't want to fuck the tank.

*edit* couldn't wait lock barrel is corroded to buggery so wound a big old decking screw into the cunt used 9kg barbell a short length of chain and popped the barrel out piece of cake.

Flathead in the hole out pops the cap now I can get fresh petrol in. 

Test ride tomorrow after work

Drill it down about 1.5cm and then it just opens with a screwdriver 

You read my mind...... I did grow up in south Auckland where nobody's car had an ignition barrel.

Test ride done with no exhaust pretty peppy once it's moving but 90 ks it's on the redline with the farm gears.

Gave it a wipe with an oily rag and gotta say it's pretty mint! A puff of paint and it'll be too nice to let the kids on.

Amazed it's been on a farm and the seat is immaculate foam is soft vinyl isn't rooted gave it a clean and leather cream it's glossy as.

Tell me about farm reg? I want to get it back in system but not pay full bike reg yet.

I got it running pretty well wouldn't mind betting the exhaust valve and seat are pitted to fuck but it'll do for now(ever)

It needed some back pressure to give it some legs so I created the king of jank scrap bucket exhaust that directs heat and noise away from the rider from all the titbits of shit under my bench.

I used some more bits and cobbled up a muffler to go on the end of the system I made. Used a 140mm shortened harley V Rod muffler so it fit the frame its got quite a nice bark to it for a 125cc.

In a moment of weakness I let my son ride it to top of the street and back only to get pulled over by the cops 4 doors from home.

Thought we were fucked but shook cops hand and just agreed I'd ride it home I just pushed it as I was still shitting my self.
