That's awesome! Some how this one made it all the way out to the west coast. :-)

Those are rear foot pegs that are in the folded position. I keep toying with selling this one...but if I do I'll probably never come across another one.

Love old Z50's.

This is one that we had at the family farm, then one day a cousin "liberated" it, never to be seen again.

You could just mask it carefully, or take a well lit hi-rez photo of the sticker to have a duplicate made.

I was thinking about that...but then it wouldn't be the original sticker so the cool factor is lost . I pealed the sticker off today in preparation for paint so it's a done deal now.

Messing around with other projects today but my father and I did manage to set up some painting jigs today. We weren't going for style points but these should help hold the parts nice and steady for painting. Still have to make the jig for the tank.

To hang the frame for paint we came up with a eye bolt that will go down through the steering head tube. The washers are just big enough to slide into the tube and catch on the raised lip inside, install the top and bottom washers/nuts and you have a nice secure eye to tie to without interfering with any paint areas.








For the rear we just welded a couple washers to some long bolts that screw into the tail light bracket. The threads in the bracket are protected and the rear can easily be supported.




Exhaust guard jig.




And jigs for the forks and headlight.




I have a couple more Z50 builds to come in the future so I'll keep these jigs around.

More progress soon.

I know you're a powdercoat guy. If you decide you'd rather use powder than paint, I can hook you up with my formula for Candy Ruby Red powder match.

All very nice. My first was a '68. Second was a '71 Trail 70.

I still have my '71 Trail 90 (my first bike). Its restoration is forthcoming... still collecting parts.

That looks nice! I already have the PPG paint so I'm going the paint route this time. I'd love to have the recipe for the powder though

Not a ton of progress yet as I've been busy with other projects. Did manage to get a little glass beading done though.






A few small dings in the headlight bucket that will need to be taken care of




The paint on the tank is pretty strong and resistant to bead blasting. I'll hit the tank with some paint stripper and then blast it.




More parts waiting to be cleaned up.




More to come.
