This is the type of speedo found on Hondas CB, SL, XL, and I am presuming TL of the early late 1970 early 80s
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/HONDA-CB125S ... 404wt_1165
The speedo had a two bolts coming out of the speedo that rubber insulation mounts were used to bolt onto a bracket that bolted onto the top triple clamp.

The speedo pictured the correct shape and size just not sure about the speedo going to 120KM/h. The speedo on my 1973 Sl100 tops out at 80Km/h.

This link to an SL125K1 is what I would have expected to see on the early TL125 registered versions
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/HONDA-SL125- ... 500wt_1180

I worked in a Honda dealership as a mechanic 76-82 and have a SL100 complete just waiting for the time and funds to come about for its restoration

Thanks for the extra links everyone.
I've decided to focus on getting the thing running again before getting into making it registered. Got some spokes coming for the rear wheel and i had a new rim to fit, so that's first.

Got the engine together with the CT125 Head and it fired 2nd kick. (of course) Figured out the carby wasn't original, much bigger and didn't suit the other bits. got a hold of an old CT125 mostly complete and fitted that carby, much better. Working on an exhaust etc and now all the road stuff.
Still waiting for the speedo i ordered to turn up, but i have a cable and it doesn't match the tl hub. It would suit the CT hub though, but that won't suit the TL forks or wheel, and I just got a hold of a decent set of forks for it already. See attached image, can anyone shed any light on whether I have a front hub that is not TL, or is the speedo cable wrong? In the parts layout there is another bit shown to screw on this part but not in any detail.

6V turn signals/signals, brake lights are also looking to be a drama. I'm not keen on the original indicators or brake lamp, but all the after market stuff appears to be for 12V only. I'd be happy with clear lenses and coloured globes.
Otherwise, what side case fits the 125 that would have 12V generator coil?

So after a few hours research and some trial and error with different winding combinations I'm pretty sure I have 12V charge out of a full wave bridge rectifier for now. Will do some more checking when I get a regulator out of an old 250 down the paddock.

Try this link.
I haven't tried them yet.
Lots of early Honda parts.


I thought I could ride until I tried Trials

I have Gonelli guards front and rear on 2 Tls, and they look good. I think someone in Oz does import, but they are cheap as from Trial & Trail in Manchester, UK. Usually cut the flap off and make that a pointy front end. Thanita in Chang Mai is a really good source, and quick. Engine parts can be sourced at econohonda in NZ, but best have the part No ready as the website does not list individual parts. I rebuilt the engines, cam, valves, rockers, the lot, and all new, although he does have SH bits. Good luck.

Sammy Miller uk sorted the front guard and mount quickly for me. Great guys there.

The speedo and cable I am still stuck on. Still haven't received the speedo yet to get an idea of how long inner cable will end up? Anyone have any idea what is meant to go on that threaded section? Everyone I've spoken to is lost so far.
