Not quite finished yet but here it is anyway. Have less than $1000 into this bike and I must say that it is the best running stock cc bike I have ever had. I forgot how much fun a super stocker could be



-Stock displacement

-custom garage built exhaust

-Lightspeed C/F glide plate, chain guide, and fork guards soon

-K&N filter

-Joker Machine choke shaft eliminator

-Takegawa head breather w/ K&N filter

-Fast 50's bar clamp, billet Throttle, dipstick, magnettic drain bolt

-Pro Tapers

-Heideneau K75 tires (love these!)

-IMS super stock pegs

Ok, I'm afraid we're gonna have to make a call here. Although Pax's bike is pretty cool it is not a Z50. It's a CRF50 with 8" wheels. The whole idea of having this was because the stocker type Z50s didnt fit well into the "Fifty of the month". Now we have basically a tricked up CRF50 with Z50 wheels. Again, really cool bike but not a Z.

Her is my 1986 z50r, it is on it's way to Vegas and i'll be meeting it there in a couple of days. Finished it, then put it in the trailer. I didn't even get a chance to ride it. ibwhalen's 1988 z50r is on it's way to Vegas, also. They will be in the line up with the Hutch Motorsports Team bikes.

I'm out of my league on this but here goes...



I built this bike from an '84 Z50 that I originally bought off of ebay. I bought the bike for my nephew who pretty much thrashed it. It laid on it's side semi-exposed to the weather for about a year after that. I got it back from my brother who had no interest in it and it sat in my garage buried under stuff for another year.



Last year I decided to do something with it. It is my first build. The idea was to make it something an adult or a kid could enjoy.





1984 frame w/ K0 engine

TB 88 cc kit and china head

TB 26mm carbeuretor

Stripped the frame and primed/painted black

Carlisle snow hog tires

Fast 50's bars

New springs in front forks

New brake pads all around

New tank w/ chrome Honda decals

New seat

Daytona Grab Bar (Monkeybikes UK)

TB Performance Exhaust

New rear shocks (chromed springs)

Slowpokes Z50r christmas special is the sickest one of those ever! I've never seen a modded one before as most have kept them stock. Nice job Slowpoke, very tasteful!
