Not yet. I'm going to look into getting one bonded if I actually try and register it. I doubt I can trace back far enough to find an owner who actually had it in their name.
i actually have a Chinese z50 monkey clone bike i bought from a guy in leauge city, he said the title is in his father in laws name as i was told. i asked for the title a when i bought it but did not get it, i have the bill of sale i will give him a call and see if i can get it. if i can ill offer it to you for $.
dont hold your breath its a long shot, but ill try.

got some work done on the other rim last night

yzupy8ym

y5epuva5

both sides have small holes where the rust ate through. I'll see if I can get them to work but will probably end up picking up some 10" alloy rims.

Not to mention the VIN on the bike won't match the title...

Thanks, but if I go that route I'll do it legit.

From what I've seen, a set of steel OEM rims in good shape will run me $100-$125+shipping on ebay, about the same as the alloys. If it's the same cost, I'm going the bling route.

What I'm really wanting for the front end is something like this though:

The rim set is for 4-bolt hubs.

That rim/tire set is about the best deal I've seen, but those rims obviously have the same issue as mine, his have just been painted.

I'm kind of leaning toward and '80's style mag, and just redrilling them for the 3-bolt.

Got my rims wire brushed and sprayed with rust converter, just waiting out the cure time before I hit them with some Rustoleum. Engine, misc bolts/rubber parts, fork bushings, tires and tubes are all here, so now I'm just looking for a chance to start re-assembly. Once I've got everything together and straight I'll be looking at paint/powder options.

It's starting to come together to look more like a bike.

I got the inside surfaces of the rims coated with rustoleum for now, tires and tubes mounted, engine in the frame, and starting to get stuff put together.

10413901 302133416612414 1528600384 n

I am missing SO much as far as bolts/nuts/washers/cables/etc goes, so this assembly is more to make a list of what I'm missing than anything. I guess I should have known this would be the case going into a basket case, but I'm likely to be pushing $100 just in nuts and bolts before it's all done.

Got the front forks disassembled last night, which was quite the chore considering both of the circlips were badly damaged, one missing one eye, the other, both. In the pic they're sitting on top of the plastic "Stunt" bag the delrin bushings came in.

10424558 1479233382313341 1161528340 n

Got new slides and dust covers on order, so as soon as those get in I should be able to get these back together with the delrin bushings. I keep thinking I should go ahead and get the upper powdercoated before I reassemble, but I feel like there's so much to do before I start thinking about getting everything coated. Not to mention that Tim is on the other side of town for me, and it would be easier on both of us if I could drop everything off in one trip to be done instead of doing it a couple of pieces at a time.

Having more and more fun with this... I should have heeded the notes on the website I bought the engine from when they said you might want to purchase the wider foot peg set. Sure enough, there's quite a bit of interference with the engine and the foot peg bracket, and rear brake lever. Looks like I might also have an interference issue with the carb and the gas tank, have to see once I can get ahold of a cable that will work in there.

Anyway, I think I'm going to cut and weld the swing arm to get a 3" (or so) extension and relocate the bottom shock mount to stay in roughly the same location. While I'm doing that I might as well widen the foot peg bracket, just need to make sure I can do it in a way that won't compromise the strength.

Anyone know how to get the cable fitting out of the carb slide cap?

Getting closer....

My parts FINALLY came in, so Thursday night (my 10th wedding anniversary) I got my forks back together. My wife is so wonderfully understanding: not only letting me work on the bike in the house, but letting me work on it ON our anniversary. (Though to be fair, that evening we just sat around watching a movie as we were doing our anniversary celebration over the weekend.)
10358279 1513494558873859 189456685 n

Since I had the sidecar off the tug to use it as my commuter, I had no way to tote the boys around yesterday, so we stayed home and worked/played a bit. Started out the morning working inside while the boys ate breakfast and watched the Croods, and I got the newly re-assembled forks back into the frame. Started "final" assembly to see what still needs to be done.
10453917 246334292222210 680231650 n

So as not to keep the boys inside all day, we made our way outside, they rode bikes, and I put a few more parts on.
926766 252896871583648 176353498 n

I found out that the throttle housing I have is for a bar smaller than 7/8" so I'll have to get all new hand controls. Parts I need to get to finish it up include a clutch lever and perch, brake lever and perch, kill switch, throttle housing, and air filter. Still need to stretch the swing arm 3", relocate the shocks, and widen the foot peg bracket to clear the engine cases. Otherwise, just plastic repair, paint, and a few misc. nuts and bolts. SO close to being able to ride it.
