How much did ya weigh in 1957 compared to what ya weigh now? Wiki says 50 mph, but I think they were just looking at the speedo. The fastest I have got a fresh rebuilt 125 (1951) was 45 mph

My recently restored "125" will only go 35 mph. In 1957, my first "125" would top out at 50 mph. The Wikipedia listing for the "125" lists the top speed as 50 mph.

The clutch seems to be properly adjusted.

What can I do to increase the top speed?
