Additional Info Bike is a 1976 Honda Z50j1 Had the bike for around 30 years, it was my first motorcycle. Bike was used by myself and my sister to learn and ride, after we both grew out of the bike it became the rouse-about for the property. It was used and abused until one day the engine stopped and locked up. The cam chain had given way. The bike then sat in the shed for 15 years or so before I decided I wanted to get it running again. I started accumulating parts over the next couple of years, stripped the bike and engine. Had the frame, swingarm, headlight bucket etc painted in 2 pac gloss black. The new tank and fork were colour matched to the original parakeet yellow. The decals were applied to the tank matching the original location then 2pac cleared over to protect them. The engine and the rest of the bike was assembled using 95% genuine new Honda parts. The plan is the get the bike registered for road use.
