« on: March 21, 2023, 12:20:29 PM »
Hi all, could anyone tell me which bike this lifting handle is off, it may be from an RD 125 but I'm not sure, anyone Know? The distance between hole centres is approx 6 1/4 ".

Hi Rob
I believe all the RD200 and 125 plus the CS3, 5 and AS models plus coffin DX models are 6.1/4" centers. They should be interchangeable.
The Handle you have is the 337 variant used on all the above except the Round tank RD A model which are variant 397.
This is the 337

and this 397

Just to add to Mike's reply, from the parts lists that I have seen (AS3, RD125, RD125DX), all of the 125 models had the handle painted black, not chrome plated. The part to models sequencing is the same, but substitute 307 and 396 for 337 and 397. They are all interchangeable.

The racks that I have on my 125A and 200B use the handle mounting points (ie shock and mudguard), so the handle is removed and the bike is lifted using the rack. On Gr8auntiepat's 200DX, the rack uses different mounting points, so the handle is retained.

Rob, expect to get £40+ for yours, if it's in half decent nick.

Thank you very much for your replies, it is not chrome plated and my opinion is that it is in excellent condition. That's a surprise Alan, I didn't think that it was worth anything like that, and you are always on the ball regarding parts, someone will get a bargain when my wife can get round to listing it unless I get an offer before hand.
