Seller description

Up for auction is a 1979 Honda CR125 Elsinore 
The legendary Red Rocket!
When the floodgates opened in 1974, they really opened. The Honda 125
came ashore in huge numbers. It was very bad news for companies like
Penton, Bultaco and Hodaka, which had made their names producing
small-displacement two-strokes. The Honda CR125 was the beginning of
the end for all three of those makes.
1979: Honda came back in a big way. The 1979 CR125R was
so new that no parts would interchange with the original ones. The
motor output shaft moved to the right, and the bike was given a 23-inch
front wheel. The bike was a radical remake.
  This was the only year with a 23" front wheel and considered by many to be the best looking of them all. Indeed this model almost transcends from being a mere motorcycle to being a work of art. This is a very original, incredibly clean, straight, unmolested, low hour machine.  It was purchased out of a collection all original and the owner had the motor completely rebuilt, bearings, gaskets, seals, clutch, piston & rings, carb rebuild, new air filter, plug, petcock rebuilt, new fuel lines, new fuel filter, and Amsoil oil change. The inside of the tank is spotless. He had no receipts but showed me the old parts, I have purchased other bikes from him and have no reason to doubt him. He estimates 3 to 5 hours on the rebuild. The bike starts easy, has great compression, and is VERY FAST! No unusual noises, shifts and stops as it should. It has a very low production number, it was the 557th one built. I was going to keep it for myself but honestly, it is simply too tall for me.
  So after a year of sitting idle I embarked on a full cosmetic restoration. The bike was stripped, Tank, Frame, & engine repainted the correct Honda Tahitian red. All nuts and bolts were tumbled and polished, all black parts were repainted, forks and other aluminum parts were polished, new handlebars, grips, levers, and pad, New cables, all new plastics (Except front number plate so I could retain the original mounting straps), new seat cover, new fork boots, new rear tire, and new decals. it was just completely detailed. The bike looks basically new, almost (or maybe it is) museum quality. Pictures don't lie, for a true representation of the bike look at them closely. I have not added gas or started this bike since it was redone. I'll leave that up to the new owner to decide if they want to ride or display it. Own a piece of motorcycle history. No collection is complete without a classic "Red Rocket" Elsinore in it.

It is also for sale locally so I reserve the right to end the
auction early.
READ CAREFULLY: A  non-refundable $500.00 deposit is due
immediately at auctions end, with the balance due within 48 hours of
auction's end via cash, wire transfer, or PayPal.  If you choose to pay by PayPal, include the 3% fee
they charge me.  I Love to restore and sell "Blast from the Past Fun". Vintage bikes that bring back the "Good old days" and the kid in all of us.  I recently took a leap of faith, and after 35 years and 300 plus bikes, I decided to follow my passion and do this for a
living, so like you, I need to be paid.  DO NOT bid if you can't afford
it, have not cleared it with the wife, or have been drinking (heavily
anyways). If you do not pay, I will report you. I will not ship, but
will make any reasonable effort to assist the shipper of your choice. As
long as it is paid for, I can store it indoors for up to 30 days for
  No matter how much a 40 or 50 year old vehicle is
inspected,, restored, or rebuilt, anything can happen. I have described it as honestly as I
can, but there is NO warranty expressed or implied, and all sales are
final. Some of my bikes are in collections and museums in the U.S, England, Japan, and Australia  I
actually sold one to the pickers a few years ago and it is now in a museum in the
Netherlands. I encourage you to ask any questions and if you are local
feel free to contact me to stop by and take a look at it. Actually I recommend it. Thank you for looking.
***I'm not an expert on these bikes but  I believe the rear shocks have been replaced. They look stock, but say "Made in Mexico". They still have the part # stickers on them.
