Hey Schu,
Look at what I got !!!
Oh man...
1969 Penton 125 6-days!
And it looks to be very complete.
The downswept pipe seems odd.
I can't wait to see what you do with that gem.

The guy I got it from has had it for fifty years. I am just going to clean it, make it run, too original to restore. Tool kit is intact. Very cool. Right place right time.

That's a good decision on your part. I have done that same thing with two of my bikes that I acquired from the original owners. Although a proper cleaning nearly required a total tear down.:nerd:

Penton

Hey Burke,

It’s getting there...rebuilt carb, petcocks, got an original tank, spark plug and ignition wire. started on its first kick after sitting for 45+ years. Carburetor is pretty cool it has a “tickler” in it that pushes the float down for more fuel.
Sadly it’s been put aside for now, the hard tail is more important. Riding the SCR everyday. Love that bike !!!

Ahhhh yes, the ol tickler! A staple of many a carburetor on the ol English bikes. A very crude but effective way to get the ol girls to fire up. Sorry! Was that too many " ol"s? BTW, Burke. What's up with your chopper? What is it? Jevers

Next is one of these if I can find one.
A friend of mine in Georgia just picked up this one for 3k. It was restored and parked in some guys office. The guy never even rode it. It took some tweaking and carb work, but he said it now runs great. Of course he is looking for a set of chambers for it. :grin2:

I sent you a PM.

I found one. It's rough, and it's expensive. Says it was posted 4 days ago, so it's probably sold already.

Don't know if you're still out there Burke, but I thought this would interest you.
