I have my ZB50 for sale right now. Im looking for $2,000 obo. Located in Toledo, OH - local pickup only. See description below. I can send more pictures via email - just send me a pm and we can exchange emails. Currently for sale on local craigslist.

1988 Honda ZB50

I am looking to sell my Honda ZB50. I have had it for a few years and I am looking to move on to something else. I have a clear title in my name and I am asking $2,000 obo (Cash only).

Currently, the bike has a few modifications, none of which alter the original state of the bike. The bike can be converted back to stock with zero knowledge that it was ever modified. Since this bike is so rare, I did not want to lose the potential to return it completely to stock. I still have all of the original parts if you choose to switch it back. Everything is included in the price.

The handlebars that are on the bike now are essentially Honda Monkey R clones that were custom made. The front fender was lowered to match the Monkey R style. It can be raised to the original position. The turn signals are aftermarket also. I choose them because of their size. Again, I still have the originals.

As common with these bikes, there are two dents on the sides of the gas tank. I bought the bike with these already there. The bike also has other cosmetic issues such as scuffs and scratches common with a 27 year old bike.

The original engine was removed temporarily and I put a Lifan 140 engine in it. The Lifan is not included. The original engine was drained of oil and stored away during this time. I recently installed the original engine and it fired first kick. I took it for a test ride and it runs excellent. Due to this switch, the mileage on the engine is perhaps 500-1000 miles less than the odometer which is around 3,500 miles. The engine is a 3 speed clutch-less manual (typical in CT70's and Z50's).

The bike has not been washed in a while, but it does clean up rather nicely. This bike has a lot of potential for a nice restore project or just run it as is.

Here is a little more info on the bike from Wikipedia:
--------------------------------------------------------------------
The ZB50 is a small 50 cc motorcycle produced by Honda belonging to its Z Series family of mini bikes. The ZB50 is very similar to the Monkey-R and Monkey-RT which were marketed only in Japan in 1987 and 1988.

The ZB50 was available in 1988 in the United States, Canada and western Europe. Only 3058 were produced for the US market as the bike proved too expensive to mass-produce. The ZB50 was offered as a street & trail alternative to the Z50R, which was geared more towards dirt track riders. The ZB50 is characterized by a perimeter twin spar frame, giving it the appearance of a miniature sportbike. IMG_0121.jpg

Kitaco exhaust with 3/4" header pipe. It has a bunch of other aftermarket parts on it. It runs and drives great. It'll carry my 205lb self at 45-55mph easily.
