Today's 125 outlook: They are everywhere in Europe. At least one is for sale on Italian E-bay every week. Most are rusty projects. There are about a dozen 125's in the USA. Cosmo never imported these bikes to America. These were privately imported by their owners years later. There are no parts in the USA for these bikes. One has to have an Italian connection to get what they need. They are fun little bikes, but definitely not for today's traffic.
