    Stunning and beautifully kept blackbird, some money has been spent on that ride:Wub::Wub::Wub::Wub::Wub::Wub::Wub:. I will wait for you to list all the mods on that stunning ride.


    I do have a sweet spot of the MSX125 Grom,its the mordern age Monkey bike :Hooray:if you mate wants custom bits for it look no further than tyga performance they have a superb collection of tweaks and mods for the MSX.It’s a tuning outfit run by brit expact based in Thailand and I cam 100% recommend them as I have a few bits from them for my bike.:Niceone:

    Hi all
    This is my good friends bike. He has had it from new 2002. It was originally silver but a few years ago had a dream machine paint job to copy the brilliant old80's icon the cb1100r.
    Anyway I would guess there is nobody on here could guess the mileage of this old bird. .......go on have a guess.

    Hi cj
    Roger is well informed re his msx and has lots and lots of trick bits on it. Not shown on photo this was when he first got it I believe.
    The bird is standard apart from paint and pipes. He still has originals in his loft. It may have a beefed up rectifier and I think thats it.

    nice looking bit of kit!!
    On average most bikers with kit like that tend to use them as garage ornaments and I guess as it's 12 years old, probably no more than 18K. Please prove me wrong! :Photographer:

    Hi steve
    You are sooooooo wrong. Add another 100k and you are nowhere near. Have another go.

    Hi
    Hi cj
    150k is way out..... try a few thou short of 200k. Original motor.
    usual servicing nothing over the top and it will still just about smash through the national speed limit......

    Your mate needs the Hondakarma gold medal for outstanding motorcycle craft and going above and beyond the call of Honda duty. Just made my day thank you for sharing the thread . There is a few cars with a 200k here a bike doing that is staggering.
