"it developed a knock going over beartooth we checked the valves and camchain in Cooke (no internet) He rode it all through yellowstone and grand tetons and it quit making enough power to continue right at the grand teton exit gate."

Update on the ST125. Pulled the carb and cleaned it (wasn't too bad). Fresh gas, had to kick start, but runs. Will put a charge on the battery tonight. Moving on to the 150 to see if I have fire.... Was a good day!

Update on the 150-
The 150 gave me a few fits this morning, but is now hauling my butt around.
1)Battery charged. 2) New fuel and vac lines. 3)No start (missed a vac line hook-up. 4) Tried to start finally. Dug in pulled the carb, cleanded jets and back together. 5) Fired/ran/purred on third crank.
Trying to clean the melted protective wrap off everything is a very slow process. Need to shop for a new speedo gauge and fuel gauge. Got hot enough in the fire that the needles warped (must be very thin) and are hanging up on the inside of the glass. Also wondering just how difficult to title them just having the cert of origins for them.

I really like it also. Feels very firm on the streets. Problem is trying to figure how to adjust the clutch, etc. and appears (at least to me) that gears are very close. It is wicked tight, unlike my CT70H Honda (of course it is a 1971). Any help on the 125 would be most appreciated.
