TZ125 help!
« on: October 17, 2020, 09:49:07 PM »
so, a buddy of mine has an opportunity pick up a TZ125, but is lost as to what year it might be and has yet to hear frlm the current owner on that.  In the meantime Does anyone know when they started building them on the aluminum box frames? Also, where are the best places to find parts for late 80s/90s models?

Disappointed, but not surprised.

I am guessing 1990 or within a few years of that.  TZ125H (1980 was steel framed and for some reason I thought they stopped production and restarted with the beam frame in or around 1990.  But I cannot swear to that.  Try over on NATS where racers tends to hang out.

Try RSCycles for parts or ask on NATS

Ask Don (Teezed, he's the administrator) on NATS; he restored a TZ125 and I think he still has it. He's a wealth of information.

Thanks for the tips guys.

Turns out the bike in question is actually a Honda RS125 that someone painted a tuning fork logo on at one point. These are all good things to know though!

Even better.  aluminum frame dates it anywhere after 89 IIRC.

Would be funny if it turned out to be our old bike.

I have an HRC tuning manual for '98 RS125R and an HRC owners manual/parts list for '97 RS125R I 'd part with if you need.
