that looks like it will be a blast to ride! what are your plans, just restore it back to original or make some modifications to it(stroker motor, etc)? did you get a title for it? that would be sweet to ride around town on!

Good luck with your project

I saw one of those on CL the other day. Was not aware that they were rare. Probably the same post.

I was able to putt around on it before i bought it and i had a grin ear to ear. As of right now, i'd like to mainly restore it to it's former glory. But who knows, i may change my mind down the road and make a few changes. There was no title for the bike. Which i don't really care especially for the price i got it at. I can always get a title for it at some point. Which i may do just to make it street legal again.

but nothing wrong with restoring to back to orginal either
I am really looking forward to putting alot of time into this one. If the engine was shot and not worth a , i would most definately put together a monster engine to put into this bike.

I'm sure you are aware already. . .but planetminis has a huge database of ZB information and parts availability. Nice find, title it and the value goes up!!!

Yeah, the more i've been thinking about it, the more i'm leaning towards getting a title. It will certainly up the value doing that alone.

Thank you again for the bike!! It has gone to a good home and will be very well taken care of.

Thank you for the heads up. I need to put together a list first and i'll shoot him a PM.

Yessir, i'm a member on there and have been browsing for a better part of the morning in the ZB section. That's a fantastic site for mini bike nuts like myself.

are those 10" wheels? i have a set of 1 piece aluminum wheels for a CT70, not sure if they'll fit that ZB though, you'd have to check.

Yes, those are 10" wheels. The tires itself is, i believe, a 10" x 3.5"

Now that I can see pics, I don't think that's the same bike as Yellowjacket. His may have been older.

Congratulations. Nice find.

I would say go for restored and get a title. You would have a lot of fun on it and with it restored and with a title, you would get your money back out of it without any problem I imagine if you wanted to move it later (you probably would want to keep it).

Please update progess as you work on it.
