This is not a true restoration, more of a refurbish. I am 46 and have owned this bike since 1979. It was my first motorcycle. It has been in pieces for more than 20 years, this year I finally decided to get it riding again.

This is how it sits. I need a rear axle and f/r wheel spacers. Like I said, it was not intended to be a 100% original resto. Lots of stuff is "incorrect" and will have XR75 purists cringing lol. I just wanted it mechanically sound and looking decent.

FWIW, the rear axle is 12mm in diameter, and I've used early '80's XR80 swingarms on mid '80's Z50's and used the stock Z50 rear axle with no problems. Picking up a couple of these and cutting them to length should work for you.
