2-stroke mower addict!
I bought 2 utilities a few weeks back and decided to start tearing one of them down today.

Im pretty sure it's a bitsa but I'm new to working on the utilities. It's got the serial number: 27205227 and a 4 on the upper section of the case. As far as I know, that makes it 1972 build. It's got a spark plug that comes out straight like the 160cc but this has a domed piston. From what I have read here that makes it a 125cc.

I'll post pictures, all and any information is very welcome!!!

The other one I'm yet to take apart has the spark plug coming out on an angle like my VC125. But if I go by the serial number the first one I posted pictures of is a 72 build and the other is 71.

Im a bit lost, is this second one a bitsa?

G'day Seanoss

The first ute I would say 1972 but can't see if there is a hole in the base on the muffler side ,may just have the wrong muffler.

The second ute 1971.

A sure way to tell a125 is the bolts. 160 is continuous through the barrel from the crankcase to the head, whereas on 125 they are separate.

Ahh, if only victa had kept producing the thumblatch catcher series, they would be in better shape today!

I would say both are originally 125cc Utes, the first one has been fitted with a earlier top end (barrel and head) as there is no decomp fitting on head or vacuum take off on intake, but has the original deck hole in 2nd last photo

The cowling has the little outward bump for the decomp

Also has a non governed carby

the 2nd one is original
