I really like my '86 CR125, the only thing to watch for on those really is the clutch cover corrosion around the water pump impeller. Shock bodies weren't hard anodized yet either so wear can be present there. The '87 was graced with cartridge forks and an all new case-reed engine which was still the foundation through at least '95. The '87 also came with a rear disc brake which makes it unuseable in the MOVMX series I race in so that why I have an 86!!! Another good alternative for a 125 from that era are the Kaws....
