    Seems like early Honda XL and SL small capacity trail bikes are very much like some of the more popular 2 stroke road bikes of the same era... 2 stroke trail bikes were all the rage in the 70's because of their peaky power bands, sound etc so there were less 4 stroke small capacity (100cc & 125cc) Honda's sold.. (my best guess).
    The small Honda's now demand a premium price... as shown by this ad in Gumtree... $2999 for a 1972 model that hasnt run in 15 years... please. I mean is the original 19 inch front wheel model as well. The later 21 inch front wheel model was much better on road and off road.

    Yep... I would really like to won a late 70's SL125 (21 inch front wheel model) but they are hard to find... there was one on Marketplace for $1750 but I wasnt fast enough.. (still too dear really). I will just bide my time... eventually something will come up.

    $50 each is a fair price. Be plenty of usable parts.
