my 1971 Honda Z50 K2 was created by Bigdog302

Here is my very rough 1971 Z50. parts for a change are very easy to find and even the paint is easy to get. it has numerous missing parts like the carb, exhaust, and other pieces big and small.


I am planning a resto-mod but no worries as it can easily be returned to stock. It will get a 108 cc big bore and stroker kit and a few custom items here and there. there is nothing that can't be reversed even with the engine mods. if anyone is interested I will post the build thread here. one thing that will be stock will be the stock candy red and white paint scheme.

I was thinking of getting the 108 kit for my 50, I watched Cars and Camera's take on one of these kits. sure like to hear that little 108 snarl.

I think these bikes are really cool. I wish I never let the CT70 go and I wish I could had my uncle in Texas sell me or give me the worn out yet intact SL70.

Thanks for posting pics of your 50's, I am really blown away by all that nice machinery!
