    Hi everyone,
    Can anyone help me figure out what year this bike is?
    this bike is sort of an odd ball to me, It has a lot of stuff my old mini trail didn't have such as turn signals and removable front end.
    The tag at the front of the frame has a Z50A, and a small silver tag has NO. Z50AE 103196 on it.
    Any help would be appreciated.. Thank, AL

    it looks like it's a 1968 as you already know, with the engine number, 1 of the earliest 20,086 made

    i posted in your other thread too,
    have a look at the back of the frame near the axle for another set of numbers/letters too

    thanks.. I looked at the rear frame sections and didn't see anything.
    I'll have to do a little more cleaning to see if I find those numbers.

    I've been beating myself up looking at pictures and I.D. numbers. I think this bike was brought overseas or something. It has all the features of a JDM z50z. 6 volt system, signal lights, removable front end, etc.. Anyone else here have a z50z that I could compare this one to?

    It is a 1969 because of the hardtail and lights. The 1968 was a hardtail, but did not have lights. I have a 1968. My post, 1968 z50 info needed, has a photo of it. CHP Motorsports has a chart on their website to identify the various years.
