The rare vintage 1974 Honda TL125 for Sale has a nice seat, good tires and it runs well, too. The TL 125 has had three owners during its life including myself that have all tended to its maintenance and care responsibly.

There are not many of these old Honda dirt bikes left in good condition.

Update on oil filters
by: Rob

Owners of bikes with this engine should know that they have a two stage oil filter system.
On the left underneath the magneto there is the gauze filter catching large particles before the oil pump. This must be installed with the rubber gasket inward and the spring on the outside.
The pump then delivers the oil to a centrifugal filter positioned on the end of the crankshaft, right hand side, accessed by removing the clutch casing.
An impact screwdriver is best to remove the three screws on the filter cover, take care not to damage the gasket behind it.
Check inside the filter drum and the cover for build up of particles, metallic particles pack in really hard and look almost like solid metal. They will need to be scraped out with a blade or screwdriver.
Make sure the area around the special nut on the crankshaft end holding the oil filter on is clean also.
The special tool for removing this nut is cheap on ebay, it is needed to remove the filter for access to clutch and oil pump also so it pays to get one.
The other danger to the life of these engines is failing to adjust the cam chain. When loose it quickly stretches and can begin dragging on the alloy surface of the engine interior, removing metal and clogging the gauze oil filter.
These engines are sometimes criticised by the ignorant because the steel cam shaft runs directly in the alloy cylinder head without a slipper bearing, using the aluminium alloy head as the bearing surface.
It is true that this means failure of oil supply means failure of the engine top end requiring new cylinder head and camshaft.
On the other hand, if the oil supply and cam chain is properly maintained you can thrash the guts out of these things all day for years on end and they are capable of very high rpm safely.

Great bikes in the sense that they will run for ever if you treat them well. by treating them well,I mean changing the oil and cleaning the oil filter and also never putting the oil filter (actually a reusable screen) in backwards. I weigh around 190 pounds and I've had two of these bikes. I rode the 1st one extensively for several years and I've put about ten hours on my newest TL.. if you ride them off drop offs or jump them you can easily bend the stock rear shock rods. other than that they are fairly bullet proof.It should be noted that you can still buy new hop up parts for these bikes because some people compete in vintage trials with them (see sammy miller's website). You can get a 150cc kit, header and muffler combos, carbs ,controls and reproduction seats tanks and body work.,there are people have heavily modified these bikes to be 175-200 CCs by putting the top ends off of XL175 and/or stroking the cranks
