I seem to almost always come across those neglected, mixed up motorcycles and give them a home where they can be loved for what they are. The latest find in This TS125 has less than 3500k, still has the restriction plate between the cylinder and carb (bonus) but the previous owners still have managed to weld a foreign kickstart lever onto the shaft, unbelievable.
This 76 TS motor will probably, in the short term end up in a TM125 framed vinduro project.

No that gets cut away then reinforced under the tank and then the motor is mounted the exact same way as it is in the XR,s
