I want to say Honda XR250, as the cam cover and rocker caps, clutch arm and clutch casing would match, but not sure about the shaped trim cover over the oil filter.

CL400
I dont think they sell them in Europe.
Based on the old XL crank cases , it looks with XR400 top end?
It's a nice bike

Must have missed this post earler - the "TL125" Tank is actually a CL250 tank, and was one of the sweetest little bikes I've owned - bought it for my GF and ended up riding it more than my Spada. Here's a post I did on it:
