Question
Hello again Bill,
         Can you tell me where to find anything about production numbers and any re-pro or original workshop manuals about my 1870 K3. I have searched the net, forums, clubs and even my local libraries. Thanks for any replies and thanks again for your help with my 1967 CL77.
Best regards,

Terry  (Derbyshire U.K.)

Answer
Terry, glad to help out on the CL77 questions... something I know pretty well.   

CB125K3???  Not so much....  

http://www.cmsnl.com/honda-cb125k3_model8199/partslist/?model_q=cb125k   gives you an idea of the variations in parts for the different series.  They were kind of a mashup between the CB175 chassis and the CD/CL/SS125A engine, except for the dual carbs, 5 speed gearbox and the mini-CB77 speedo-tach on the early ones.

I think they were primarily Japanese domestic models, with some filtering out to Europe/UK.  We didn't have anything like that here, just the CB175K series  http://www.motorera.com/honda/h0175/sport175.htm

http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C590914  that went for a pretty price...
