I was thinking on the lines of a RS 125/100 or maybe even a 50

Are you sure?

Maybe the model names in UK are different than here in Sweden? Here the RD is a strict road model (half faired sporty) while the DT is the offroad one. 50 cc might be correct anyway.

Nearly. It's an RD50MX, you can tell this 'cos of the cast wheels.

No, before anyone asks, MX in this case does not mean motorcross/

Glad to be of service.
