Honda z50 project build up.

So a few months back i bought a 1991 honda z50 for the girlfriend to ride. She never rides it so i descided to start doing some cosmetic upgrades for fun on the side. I started stripping the bike down and prepping the plastic, gas tank and soon the frame, forks and swingarm for fresh paint. I also re-did the seat with some pimpin leopard skin styled cloth. I really enjoy these kinds of project on the side.

I'll update with more progress and pics as it comes along.. Enjoy

I got a z 50 / Monkey 110 that I really like, but like yours it's a project in the works. With a later model big cc china motor these things are mean. G/L with the project.

Haha, that seat cover is badass.. It'll look even better with all the fresh paint and good detail.

Thanks .. These bikes are a blast to ride even completely stock. The wide seat over the new xr and crf50s is alot more comfortable to.

2nd round of pics

At this point i've repainted the front and rear fender pieces, gas tank, foot pegs, shift lever, kickstand, subframe, kickstart front tire and front brake piece.

It's all painted a gloss black and by the time i'm done, with the exception of the engine and seat, basically the entire bike will be black.

Here are a few more pics.

Update 10-6-09

A layer of gloss black paint has now been added to the rims, tank, plastics and everything else previously mentioned.

After a bit of blue masking tape i'm now putting a few layers of paint on the forks, handlebars and then the subframe. Last to be sprayed will be the frame.

This is going to look pretty good after it's all done and put back together.

More pics will be posted in a few days.

Update:

Bike is finally finished.. All glossy black from the frame up with a few stickers and pink stripes added by the girlfriend. I'm really happy with how the bike turned out. You can hardly tell the bike is almost 20 years old!

I'll post up some pics soon.
