I remember that brake. I'm pretty sure it was the same one that came on some Kabuki bikes. When the bike was in the stand, the brake could stop the wheel spinning. On the road, though, the brake didn't do a darned thing.

Look at those quality dropout connections! Reminds me of curtain rods/hangers.

Sad thing is these death traps are legal in most of the western states if there under 100cc.

NO EMAILS (No phone number listed)
There is a phone number listed if you click on the "contact" button.

I'd guess the seller forgot the decimal point after the 125

Perhaps the only bike I've ever seen I hope is never ridden. It belongs in a museum. Not necessarily a bicycle museum, but as a pristine example of 20th century industrial design. Really is priceless as an artifact if not as a bicycle.

The bike looks like it has been coated with KBS diamond clear finish topcoat. KBS will make a dull paint job look like glass. And it gets very hard.
