I think you could get a much better rs125 for 1100. It doesn't look great in the pics.

The paint just look dodgy to me and the Tax and MOT is about to run out!

maybe if he re taxed mot'd it before the sale it would be a lot safer choice only way to really see what condition it's in tho is to go and have a look at it is he far away from you?

the thing is, its very close to where i live, and its going to be painted anyways, and its had the top end redone, so yeh its got that single seat bit on it so thats less for me to get

If it's gonna be repainted and stuff it doesn't matter too much I guess, make sure that top end rebuild is genuine tho! Looks like its been dropped on the RH side if you ask me

yeh will strip it and rape it whilst i have a look on the weekend,
the guy sounds genuine, but cant trust no one these days.
im thinking gloss black all round, with some decent aprilia decals.
plus a DB tinted screen.
anything else?

Get a bright colour or something that stands out!

I like the new Honda Fireblade colour scheme, is pretty tidy!

just a thought your going to have the 125 for that 2 years at most till your 19? why not keep the money and when you get your next bike you'll have that for quite a few years spend the cash on that dont sink it now wont really affect the price you sell the bike for just my thoughs.

Most ppl on here have modded their 50's which they keep for a year so 2 years = spend as much as possible on it? haha!

its a kwak zrx1100 atm it has the engine in, and the wiring is in.
the only thing we need to get it ridable is the rear shocks, which are going to be 2 inches longer, which jacks the back up a bit

what do u mean keep the money?

well either save it to spend on your next bike or spend it on having a good time now either way i think it's money better spent if you spent 500 alot of money to use on other things.

well the thing is that i wont be able to ride this bike legaly untill 19th feb, so i have some time on my hands to sort it out, kinda like a mini project, i dont want to spend every penny on it, cos that would be shit

If you have a Look at it first have a Look at the Fairing Bracket things and see if there bent in anyway and that will say its been on the Deck

Looks good to me , find out if its had a bottom end rebuild. He seems legit, every single rs125 ou come across has been sent down the road lol its up to you to fix it tho...

wow , i never knew the rs125 was a zxrr! You would just look like a bell end on a rs125 painted like a kwak, Its a aprilia. Kinda like painting a ford sierra likle a ferrari 355 or something.

rs125's dont have fairing brackets. They just screw directly into the frame.
