Restored: Honda RS125

In CRMC, News, Tech

LAID up on the mend following a freak accident at Donington Park, Phil Atkinson has been spending his time building up a few toys – including this beauty.

It’s a 1994 Honda RS125 in classic HRC colours, courtesy of Kenneth Sturgeon, that the South African has been plugging away at for a while, and which he has just recently pulled the wraps off.

“I have really enjoyed this project, as it brings back great memories for me,” he said. “This was the first real Grand Prix bike I raced back in South Africa in 2001.”

And while it won’t be raced this time around, the build is a labour of love nonetheless for the reigning ACU 250GP National Champion…

“The CRMC allow up to 1986 – there’s no class for it, so this will just be a parade thing for now.”

Atkinson is somewhat of an RS125 afficionado, as he also takes the liberty of engine and bike preparation for defending CRMC Post-Classic 125cc champion Steph Waddelow.

With his shoulder rehab on track, the Ducati Cup / 250GP / Supermono / Classic / anything-two-wheels racer plans to be back out in the mix for the British Superbike Championship’s visit to Snetterton at the end of this month.
