Recognizable by its sunburst cylinder head and leading-link Earles-type fork, the Sachs 125 was at the forefront of small-bore enduro competition in the early Seventies.
Introduced in 1968, the Sachs was designed to be a competitive turn key entrant for privateer off-road racers with an equally competitive MSRP of $600.The Sachs engine was reliable but not fancy – it put out 12.5bhp and required premixing for the oil. Riders also got a leading-link fork and Magura levers. In 1969, Joel Robert rode a Sachs just like this one and won the World 125 CC Championship.
The bike offered has been lovingly restored and presents beautifully well. On static display it will likely need a little fettling to return to reliable off-road use
