Honda CL125

From CycleChaos

The Honda CL125 was a 4-stroke manufactured by Honda between 1967 and 1974. The CL designation indicated this model to be the "Scrambler" version which implied some off-road capability. (prior to actual dirt-bikes gaining popularity.) The CL series of bikes were actually street bikes with a higher rear fender, a braced handlebar, and a high-mount exhaust. The CL underwent a change from 2-cylinders to a single-cylinder model in 1970.
