1986 z50r restoration hellride
« on: Sep 10, 2017, 18:23:49 »
I just pulled in a 9 bike z50r haul. I'm looking to restore as many as three of them, with the 86 seemingly the most solid. Plus it's a classic gold wheel Honda dirt bike. This will be my first actual restoration:

Rust rida. All joking aside this is a cool pickup.

Started a tear down. The jug is actually good to go with a cleanup and hone. The head, on the other hand, I'm not so sure. One valve doesn't spring back. The cam looks good. Everything else with the motor is solid.

I am in for sure. I love the old Z50s.
So many parts for these motors as well.

I have 2 Z50A and my brother has a Z50R. Best fun I have had on a bike was on these little things.

I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

I am envious of that haul. Those gold wheels are too legit.
