Honda CG125 is a nice practical and not very demanding motorcycle and by “not very demanding” I mean you don’t need that much of previous experience to ride this one. Still, basic knowledge and common understanding of how it functions and how to treat a bike is an indisputable necessity. It doesn’t matter if it’s 125cc or 1000cc – safety always first.

Now, let’s talk more about this build completed in Lahore, Pakistan by Saboor Traders. The aim was to transform the bike into a classic vintage Cafe Racer. Some guys might argue that more changes could be done to make this CG125 even more interesting. Sure – perfection has no limits. But I also believe that if done right, even small things like changing tires and handlebars can drastically transform the overall design of a previously undistinguishable motorcycle.

This bike got many things reworked though. The rear end was rebuilt and got a shortened fender with a simple round stoplight on top. Shortened and thinner than the original item brat style seat was installed to implement the desired lines.

As for the front, there are clip-ons with Harley replica grips and a quite big round headlight with a built-in speedometer. The tank is partially painted in matte black on the sides and the rest is glossy which is only logical considering other shiny parts one sees looking down while sitting on the bike.The tires are both 4.00-18.

The top speed of this model is around 65mph(105km/h) but with engine tuning this one is claimed to reach 117km/h. Not bad at all I would say. A very elegant and neat bike came out of a rather simple looking stock Honda CG125.
