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 it as a basket case and proceeded to get everything back to as original as I could. What’s nice about it, was the original seat and realtively low mileage at about 3,300. It has lots of scratches and bruises from poor storage but looks great when you take a step back. It fires right up and runs great. Everything works. Here is a list of the work completed and other details.
