Bike of the Month - January 2005
1976 Honda CR125M Elsinore
Carl Richey
Longmont, CO



I found this Elsinore over 10 years ago and have been racing it in AHRMA post vintage since 1996. The yellow nunber plates are on it due to the AHRMA rules. I have the originals but did not want to alter them. The bike is stock with the exception of a Circle F pipe and a Motion Pro (straight pull) throttle. I ran the original pipe on the bike until this year.


This bike is super-fast, and I have got quite a few holeshots over the years, most recently last year at a PV national in Colorado Springs. This bike won the intermediate Historic class in the AHRMA Rocky Mountain region in 2000, against 250cc or larger bikes.


It is a great bike and will always be in my collection.
