I'll start a thread of the resto.
Year they still cool the old school Z fiddys a. Me n brother got one each.
this is the zedder that has been in the family for 25 or so years ... just had valves and seals done for the first time ever lmao was lacking a tiny bit of go hehe
custom seat lol... used to have springs for that extra bit of comfort
I love the tank on that model .... are ya gunna do it up and get her on the tar ?
um, dont quote me on this, but im of the belief a z50 doesnt need a compliance plate.... depending on the year of manufacture, and what else? a "letter of compliance" for other ones...
just remember reading that soewhere on the rta.... i know none of my posties had compliance plates...vin numbers, yes,though not the same as modern ones, anyway.... but not compliance plates...
all z50s should be registered
is that a john dear ride on lol
nice z50, don't know about the seat looks dickie to me..should get it rego'd
haha right now its the 'family' run-around for the property we got near jameson on 'lake' eildon lol... so no tarmac for it for a while unless i replace it with another one..
dont remember what the ride on is bully its one of 3 or 4 dads acquired... got 1 or 2 at eildon and 1 or 2 for his place... and the seat would look dickie lol cant remember where it came from but when the old one sh@t itself 15 years ago or something we got that for nuthin... being the run-around and lasting for 25+ years with almost no work done on it ya cant fault a dickie seat lol (old one sat at the same height as the tank )
i tell ya i would love to get her on the road it would be a good project to get it looking schmicko, it doesnt look a great deal different to when we got it 2nd hand all those years ago.. i dont even know what year it is or any other details about it, till i got on miniriders i never really knew how popular they have become over the years.
also got a frame with bars and wheels i think from a scrap metal dealer in mansfield that seemed like a zedder but was bigger almost 90 postie bike size i think but with same style handle bars (one reason we got it since originals have been welded more times than i can remember) i'll take a photo next time i visit the olds.
cash (as usual) will be the main issue in doing anything to it but my interest has certainly flared since i been here, especially with the vids from Snitchy... lovin them mate keep em coming looks like awesome fun.
oh yeah and bully the seat really came at a perfect time since when we changed it i had started having trouble catching branches and tee-tree and all likes of foliage having kinda grown 'a bit' and needing to hang my knees right out
I seemed to have bumped a well and truly dead thread
Here is my newly acquired monster death machine.... a 1981 Z50R with 125cc replacement engine.
I really have to put extended swing arms on to tame this beast going slow and fast. It has a knarly 4.80-8 rear tire for roto-tillers that is super aggressive with the knobby tread.
I believe every American should own a machine that they can lift over their heads and that will take them down the road at 55 mph. ( my machine = 115lbs.)
