1976 Mugen
Honda ME125

Chris Morton sent this gorgeous Red Racer to become part of the PGM collection. If it looks familiar to you it should as it was featured in Transworld MX magazine in February 2008. This bike was a labor of love for Chris and he even raced it once. He shared this bike with Honda factory rider Andrew Short for an article on vintage Hondas. I hope these pictures make you as happy as the bike makes us.

Chris purchased the bike from the original owner that purchased it from Al Baker. When purchased from Al it had in-house modification done when bike was picked up:

  • Original forks were revalved
  • Motor was built by O Smith
  • Installed FMF up pipe with new side panel
  • S and W shocks installed
  • Swingarm was changed to Thor or Cross up (not sure which one it is)
  • In the mid 80's Chris purchased the bike as it was ridden and stored for years.Then he did a full restoration including:

  • Rebuilt new motor with Mugen Kit
  • New Mikuni 32 mm carburetor
  • New Mugen copy cone pipe
  • NOS Ceriani Magnesium forks and triple clamps (custom made the stem and stops to fit frame)
  • New Aluminum Works Performance Shocks
  • New Sun wheels and Buchan spokes bearings replaced
  • New seat cover
  • Aluminum handle bars and Magura levers
  • New Chain and sprockets
  • New cables
  • Aluminum Brake retainers
