I must say the fairing is exceptional quality Well I will tell you what I've done in order to get this bike back from dead and enough power to create an unbelievable fun ride.
Port polish
New carby with larger capacity
New bigger fuel line and filter
Custom made stainless steel air stacker with filter
Bigger front sprocket
Removed pollution gear
Removed catalytic converter
Replaced exhaust with cocktail shaker
Racing digital igniter
Reduced weight down to 74kg by cutting frame and removing most body parts
Relocated battery to under hump
Replacing ignition leads with better and higher capacity one's
Hotter spark plug
Oil radiator installed
All in frame indicators, as you can't see any, but they are there.
Raised tank 10mm and replaced most wiring harness as well.
Lowered seat 10mm
Lowered headlight 40mm
New speedometer that is actually accurate.
Custom seat upholstery and removal of most foam.
Full stainless steel hoses on engine, with silicon breather better capacity hose.
Removed cable choke.
Replaced all brake and clutch levers with lighter more durable ones.
Double clutch cable as they chew through them.
Removed all unescecary wiring like side stand kill switch ect and pollution wiring.
Oil filter inline to radiator, plus the oil radiator has increased oil amount by 300ml.
And that is a good thing.
And of course spent a **** load of cash, hah a haha but the bike now kicks arse for a 125. Top speed of 120kph, but 0 to 60 kph very fast.
Keep in mind it's not built for comfort, and not practical as an every day ride, but sure as ****, runs, performs, and looks awsome, can't go anywhere without attracting people to it.
Has won 1 show so far.

Hi CR,

Definitely not everyone' choice but great job and you're happy with her, that is what counts.
I do not understand some of your terminologies but those are probably re-builders things.
What is "new carby"?
What is an "air stacker"?
I am pretty interested in how you installed an oil cooler and where you connected the in- and outlet to.

As long as you are happy with what you ride.

Carby is carburetor
Air stacker is the type of air intake funnel
The oil cooler came as a kit, with fitting into sump via 32mm oil filter plug. Common plug on Honda's. The engine is from CG 125. They have an unused port for oil external oil filter. Inside behind plug is wire mesh filter screen only. It has inlet and outlet now with adaptor.

Also made the Indicators, as could not buy any that are nearly invisible whilst at the same time being the brightest ever made. Used 10 watt led eagle eyes. Very very bright, no excuses from drivers saying they could not see them.

You can Attatch oil coolers via removing your oil filter and getting adapter to screw in its place, then the oil filter is inline to the cooler, so the cleaned oil flows through radiator then back to engine.

No it looks like it's a 'Skyteam Ace' but it has an orangey frame so it still counts
