You got eagle eyes! The fork tubes are definitely 1951. The number in the triple tree is still a mystery. Maybe it's a 1951 bike that had a heart transplant - I guess we'll know when we see more pictures.
That 175cc Scat engine has a lot more power than a 1951 Model 125 engine does. Maybe that's not such a bad thing...
...I recently lead a short road ride with my local AMCA chapter. They clocked my mighty 125cc Hummer at a blistering 49 mph. Of course, that was going downhill with a tail wind.

The 51 forks are a 1 year only item, grease zerks for lubrication near the bottom, and solid top caps, no fill the forks with oil plugs on the top.
