Hey guys first post here. Ive loved the Zb50s for a long time. A guy I work with has one and will not sell it. So im on here to get one. Im looking for one that has not been repainted and is in pretty good shape. Ive been scanning ebay and cannot find one. So if you have one please email me with pics. I live in Phoenix AZ. Or if you know where to get one let me know where I can pick it up. :eek:

If the seller used genuine Honda parts, he probably has over a couple hundred in the topend and crank. Ask him if he has the keys for the entire lock set(ignition, fork, helmet, and gascap) and if the condition of the inside of the tank is good. If all that is good and present, then he might get a decent price, especially if he has a title.



Just to give you an idea of price, I bought a roller with a basketcase motor for $250, but it did not have a speedometer and the tank was nasty inside. Cases, stator/lightcoil in good condition.

ask him if the speedometer works. Another discontinued part from Honda like the gas tank.

i do have 90% of the parts you need for this bike.

What parts does the seller have?

Nice ZB50 d0n! There is a big difference in value between hot rods and stock bikes to collectors. A simple paint job on my ZB's with the correct decals added and a few parts replaced = original restored bike. Higher value. Collectors want original. Not modified. Buy all the $1500 ZB'S you want. Try to restore one now. Parts are gone. I know of people who have paid $500 for a nos ZB50 gas tank. That bike on Ebay, you would go broke trying to restore that basket case. Buy that to hot rod. Too many parts missing or ruined. Do you have the original motor for yours? Turn signals? Exhaust and cover? If so hold on to them. Your will be worth a lot more in the future than as it sits now. You built a hot rod for you. Ride, enjoy it! Also make an bracket, tap the swingarm, bolt it to that last bolt hole on the Monkey rear hugger so it not flopping around.:) :) :) :)

Good luck finding a nice one for $1500. 99% of ZB's were either trail ridden or street ridden hard by kids. No one really cared for them when they were brand new so not many mint ones exist. The only nice ones left are either owned by the people on this board (hehe) or have been rebuilt. And with so many crucial parts no longer available, the mint ones are slowly disappearing and those for sale are commending very high prices (1800-ish). I think in your budget range will be something that is mechanically good but not good cosmetically or maybe missing some parts.



I kinda regret modding my first ZB (it was absolutely mint, had only 112km's on it and all the original parts but this was like 8 years ago and I didn't think I would find another ZB in my area or find a community that loved the ZB so much.) Now that I have 3, I've kinda given up on keeping anything stock and am just modding to my heart and budget's delight. BTW - I completely redid one of the ZB's this week and I'll post pics tomorrow....it's quite a shocking/different look from stock!
