Rare and super cool, ah to own a works bike!
Original Post on Ebay:
Genuine Honda factory works Mugen 125 MX GP race bike. Not a kit bike, like some on the internet! Two of these bikes were sent by the Honda factory to Holland in 1981. One was for Peter Groenezeld, and the other one was for Henk Stepenwoolde for only that year. The bikes then went back to Honda. For 1982, both 1981 bikes went to Henk, with a bike later used by Teo Eggens. Please search the internet for more history. Frame number ME03-2014666, and engine number JE01E-ME125RE - 3000208. This bike was considered the "A" bike during the GP race years. The "B" bike sold for 17,000 Euro a few years ago, and unfortunately required a more complete restoration, and is less original now. That other bike is still within our circle of friends and could also be available in a future eBay transaction, if there is interest after this eBay auction.
This bike is extremely original with the FIM control paint markings, original sponsor stickers, works forks and swing arm, and magnesium hubs. The original builder's initials "WR" Willen Renson are machined into the engine, as shown. Only the radiator shrouds are not original from the factory. The original shock could be rebuilt and is included, as shown in photos. Quality Euro item is now on the bike. Engine rebuilt by Honda expert Bill Clem in southern California. Minor flat spot on original front rim, but otherwise ready to race, with new chain and sprockets.
