Hi

The carb is probably easy to fix. They use a 32mm flat slide Dellorto (very similar to the 34mm one used in a lot of Aprilia RS125s). Oddly the carb floats slide up and down pins in the carb rather than pivot on a pin.

They are going up in value.

Big problem is the plastics. Those ones do not look bad, but they are not that thick or heavy duty, and go brittle with age.

I know of someone building a Vincent engined special using a CX125 front end.

Katy
