It weighs about 200 lbs, I guess. 1974 Honda XL70 frame; early '80s XR100 swingarm and forks; tank, bar, seat and fenders from a 1981 XL80, front 19" wheel from an early '70s XL100, rear wheel (with overlay sprocket for a mountain gear) from a late '60s Trail 90. The engine is a Jialing/SSR 125cc with manual clutch and 4 speeds. It gets 80+ mpg if I run it like I'm trying to kill it, and over 100 mpg if I putt around at 25-35 mph. It is tagged and street legal.
I'm thinking about putting a 140cc Piranha engine in it.

Must have been quite a scavenging hunt. Bikes reminds me of the CB-100 I once had:

CB100 was a neat bike. So was the CB125. Sym sells a 150cc clone of the CB125, called the Wolf Classic. I have more fun building my own stuff, though.

That is a nice bike. I thought it was pretty funny though when he said he had only put a couple hundred miles on it because he had only had it a couple months. In southern California where it's always nice riding weather? I'm pretty sure I would have a couple hundred miles on it before the first weekend!
