Yamaha RD125DX

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Buying -

This sorry looking spec­i­men was once a saucy lit­tle RD125DX; long years stood idle in a French shed have clearly done it no favours. Although it comes with no pa­per­work (it is NOVA reg­is­tered) it has match­ing num­bers, the seller says the pipes are still solid and, de­spite the wretched con­di­tion, it’s all there. Nei­ther a cheap nor easy resto this Yam will be hid­ing myr­iad other hor­rors wait­ing for its new owner. Sold for £360; only a full strip will re­veal whether it’s worth sal­vaging...

Gary says: That looks more like it was dragged from a swamp. Chances are that if it’s that rot­ten on the out­side, the hid­den ar­eas won’t be much bet­ter – Yams of this vin­tage weren’t built from the best metal. It’s a punt at that price, but at least you could make some cash back break­ing it.

Ut­terly min­gin’ but all there. A tough resto
