We have had numerous readers ask us to do a REAL budget build. Most magazines and companies (us included) start a “budget build” and it tends to get a bit out of hand.
With this 2005 KX 125 we will make it an affordable race ready machine. It won’t have all the extra goodies our YZ 144 project had, but it will be a mechanically sound, competitive bike that almost anyone can afford to build, maintain and race.
We will be starting the tear down today and begin getting our parts list together. Stay tuned to TSM for details and progress on the KX.
Here are the before pictures, just how we picked it up on Craigslist for $800
