i slipped my TS 125 motor straight into an rm 125 S frame for a cool trail bike back in the late 70's corked teh crank on the ts, tried the rm pipe but it didnt work until the ts ran out of ports and carb so used the stock ts pipe. was great to ride....the rm 125 s motor in the ts frame was a weapon! especially as it had no rear brakes ( i had to use the cable on the rm) ..i was giving it a run at a local riding spot when ol mate rocked up in a car full of hoons and wanted a ride....after 3 hard gears he went for the brake.. panicked pulled the front on hard and bit the ground hard :o.. no helmet.. he was in loose tooth city for a week ;D

Good to see they are still made as it means new parts are still available. This ER model first  came out in 1979 actually and the same motor came out in 1977.

Pokey, your bike looks really good. Needs a Webco head.
