I thought Project CL125S was…well, not “done,” but just about roadworthy. All the electrics are done, fuel lines and shutoff in place, and I’ve been finishing up the new mounting brackets for the relocated seat. There I am, thinking I was about ready to put fuel in it, when I see a puddle under the front tire, fork oil just running down the left side fork. [Ignore the messy bench in the background.]

I rebuilt these forks less than 60 miles ago, including buffing the tubes, but I guess they’re just too far gone. I ordered some Chinesium replacement tubes, which are all that’s available.
