After a few $$$ and several hours worked I am about complete.

It now has a 110 motor and all is new except the frame,seat and forks. I now have the factory colors on this 1976 Z50 and all the original parts are in a box incase I get ready to put it back factory


Man I have created a monster with myself as this little thing is fun to ride and yes I am proud of it

Very nice, indeed!

What are the yellow and red machines in the background on your first pic?
Other projects?

Those in the background are not mine. They are 1969/1970 restored and were also for sale at the time I bought the orange one.


Thanks, Mike
