Sold May 20, 2020

This first and only year 1984 Honda Elite 125 was purchased last year. The Honda Elites are the only scooter ever made with a pop up headlight. The 125 was only made in ’84. Honda continued the popup headlight in the 150 Deluxe for ’85 and ’86. The added power was a welcome addition before Honda discontinued their mid range scooter in favor on the 250cc and 80cc.

I bought this one from the 2nd owner who only kept it for one season. He purchased it from the original owner in 2018 to replace his Honda Ruckus for commuting. However, he moved during that time and didn’t like the truck traffic on his new route so he sold it to me after hardly using it. It has low mileage at about 3,360. It fires right up and runs great. Everything works. Here is a list of the work completed by me and other details.
