Dave, I couldn't see ether the zerks or the top cap. I suggested this to allow Matt to further define the date of the frame parts. Doug

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.
