That looks like a nice little beauty there.  What happened with the .50 over that you're wanting/needing to swap over a Lifan?  Also, does the '82 model use the internal throttle assembly as earlier CB models do?  If so, how did you get the controls to work with those bars?

This CB125 does not use an internal throttle assembly. It uses a throttle tube connected to the right OEM controls.

The bike needed a bit more power for our California roads. The 200cc fit the bill and has enough power to scare me a bit.
