Bike of the Month - January 2007
1974 Honda CR125M Elsinore RC Replica
Forrest Rohrs



My 1974 Honda CR125 Elsinore that I originally traded a 1974 Suzuki TM 400 for. The story goes.. a friend in New York who was into Suzuki TM's had this rust bucket of an old 1973 CR 125 laying around & he was really interested in my TM 400 which I couldn't give away out here. We decided to trade straight across & took the bikes apart and shipped to them to each other.


I never found out what happened to that TM 400 or him for that matter! After he received it & restored it he quit calling!! Hmmm scary!


That was 1993 & I still own it along with 2 others & a 1974 Honda Elsinore CR 250 & a 1975 sleeved down CR100 in the making.


Bike is equipped with Red-Racer plastic & RC replica tank, MSR CR bend bars, side pull throttle, 74 CR250 front end, Bridgestone Tires, 9 gauge stainless spokes, Webco head, ported cylinder, 81 CR 125 rod kit, 32mm Mikuni carb, Maico Airboot, Original Red-Line swingarm with works performance shocks, 428 gold chain & an original FMF downpipe currently getting the dent blown out:)
