I've had several Z50 K1's during my
Marblesmotors days, but I always wanted to put together a
very nice one to remind me of the one I had as a youngster.
In May of 2012 I finally came across one that was worthy of
the restoration that I wanted to perform. The bike I
bought looked as though it had never been wrecked or abused
with perfectly straight handlebars and no dents in the tank.
What you see here is the finished product after a complete
teardown, repaint in Candytone Blue, engine rebuild /
restoration, fork rebuild, rechromed bars and careful
assembly using all original Honda
nuts/bolts/screws/washers/clamps etc. Bike still wears
the original tank badges and I put a NOS Stanley taillight
lens on it.
Picture of the bike as I found it.
Very unmolested and no dents/dings, original seat, muffler,
