Honda RC125 replica

Honda RC125 replica
This replica of a works Honda motocross bike is causing a ripple in vintage motocross circles. In the mid-70s, the poster boy for motocross was Marty Smith, and he rode an RC125 Elsinore. Although it looked similar to the Elsinore you could buy at your local dealer, it was actually a seriously tricked-out bike. And now the Vintage Factory has created this replica, complete with a multitude of works parts. The company specializes in first class restorations, building Honda MR50, XR75, and CR125 and 250 Elsinores—including ‘themed’ bikes such as FMF, DG and Mugen racers from the 70s. If you’re a vintage motocross fan, you’ll find their site addictive. And while we’re on the subject, another vintage MX site worth visiting is Terry Good’s MX Works Bike, which has well-shot photo galleries of 60s and 70s machinery from the major Japanese makers, plus rare readers’ rides from the likes of Lito, Combi-Triumph, Monark, Mugen, Noguchi and Puch. Make sure you have an hour or two to spare before you start digging. [Via Motorsport Retro.]

    I like them a little older, but vintage MX and -even more so- ISDT bikes truly deserve regular posting here!
