Bike of the Month - September 2005
1979 Honda CR125R Elsinore
Dan Troesken
San Clemente, CA



I purchased at a garage sale a year ago for $350. It took me 9 months to restore her to this condition. I think it may be one of the nicest restorations around. The bike was purchased with low hours on it. The piston and bore looked like new. As you can see, the bike has the original Eagle Claw tires that were of a Honda design for 1979.


The paint and body work was performed by Drzek in San Juan Capistrano, CA. I use the bike for show only. It has a big brother that is even better than the CR125R.


The first picture below is a shot of what the bike looked like before the restoration.
