I just joined the list today. My unit is #2707. I've owned it for several years now and ride it in the True Grit 50cc Fun Run out of Suches, Ga. In 1999, I won the overall Galaxy Championship aboard my little monster. I am using the Honda engine, highly modified and having to run on race fuel only. Still, I have fallen well behind on my cheating and will probably join the multitudes next year and stick a big Chinese cheater motor in it since my time bomb engine may go pop at any minute. I was running at 75MPH in spots and having the Derbis and Aprilias blow by me. I'm considering a 150cc Lifan. Any insight will be appreciated.

The reason I joined is that leaving the last check on the 62 mile romp through the Georgia mountains my tank sprung a leak. I may try to fix it or maybe get the Chinese knock off. I know the Japanese steel from the 80s is pure crap but it did last 22 years. Any thoughts there?

Can you explain why the Lifan 150cc engine is $400 and the Daytona is $1,000?

I'm not complaining, I just don't know the difference.

Tmas brought something to my attention about the Canadian models. Apparently they have a different consecutive serial number on them and can be identified from the US Models.



Look to position #12 on the vin.



Pos 1-3

JH2 - Honda Motorcycle, Manufactured in Japan

Pos 4-8

AB220 - Honda ZB50

Position 9 is the check digit This is based on an algorithym and these can be different.

Position 10 is the year

J - 1988

Position 11 is the plant in which they are built

S - Suzuka Factory in Japan

12-17 are the serial numbers.



US models have a 0 or zero in this spot.



00XXXX



Canadian ZB50's have a 5 or five in position 12 of the vin.



50XXXX



Tmas is going to see if he can dig up additional information on how many of these units were made for the Canadian market. Plus, their speedos are in KM/h rather then MPH. My guess is less were made for the Canadian market and are in addition to the 3058 made for the US market.



I have no idea on the ZB50's made for Europe.




Just to complete information of the Europeen ZB50 version.



All official imported ZB50's from Honda Germany show the type e.g. AB22 - 100XXXX to AB22 - 101XXXX



I don't know how many ZB50's are in Germany, but I guess it's a quantity below 1000.



There's no mark for plant in which they are built and no production year in the fin.



I have two ZB50's, one for riding (142cc) and one collectors bike for sale with only 166 km on speedo.



Another one is now offered in ebay with only 68 km.
