If your friends bike was actually a '63 it would have been either Tango Red or Hi-Fi Red metallic.
The 165cc's were two-stroke engines and you had to mix your gas with oil via a measuring cup located on the underside of the gas cap.
As you might imagine they were low power machines,but what they lacked in performance they more than made up for in "fun times".
I had several of the 125's, a '48,'49 and a '52.
The '52 was bored .0020" and I thought it was a real screamer back then.
I learned to ride on these machines, which I think was a real benefit, before I got my first
XLCH, a 1961.
If you want more info. let me know and I'll see what I can dredge up.
