I find it hard to believe that you bought a bike with 8 miles on it for... $125. :bsflag: Especially with how rare the ZB50 really is. Your lucky if you find a nice speedometer for that price.
Can you please post a pic of the bike the way you got it 8 years ago in perfect condition in the same surroundings ?

Just relo’d to Avondale from Houston. Kids race a couple CRF-50’s in minigp so I’m sure we have stock throttle cables, carbs, bars and exhaust.

Got your parts. I’ll even give them to you for free. Throw that unicorn in the trunk/truck and bring it to Avondale. I’ve got to see it in person.
I sent you my personal information so we can get it going let’s get your kids riding around on it

Hello my little my friend!

Not my bike but I’m in nostalgia heaven. We will get this kitty to purr again. Of course with some tasteful engine mods.

Got so ahead of myself, we installed cable, new carb, spark plug, fresh oil then had a bit of a let down.

No compression.

Stay tuned!

Really cool to see something like this actually be recovered and sort of intact. I'm sure it was a rough 8 years for the ZB but neat that it found its way home! Congrats with the project.
