Congratulations to Doug Rickertsen of Huntington Beach for winning Bike of the Month with his 1971 Honda SL125.
Doug won a plaque provided by Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys.
Doug has owned this Honda for more than 30 years. He finished the six month restoration last month just in time to bring it to our March meet and win second place.
The engine cases we cleaned up with Vapor Blasting by Parts Reborn, www.PartsReborn.com in Orange, CA. Owner Steve Armstrong
has attended our meets.
Many of the parts along with the paint were done by Marble Motors, www.MarblesMotors.com in Texas. Doug said the paint work was done in Indiana.
Doug told me that the SL125 was Honda's answer to the popular Yamaha 125 AT1 that came out in 1969. The SL125 was built for four years.
Thank you Doug for bringing your Honda out for all of us to see. See all the photos in our April Gallery.
