Kick started the custom 8" Z50JZ Supermoto project a couple of month ago going through the parts stored away from previous builds. Using a MIC = Made In China "cheap as chips" frame for test fitting custom and modified parts.
A mate had to relocate back to his home country and left me his kids Jincheng Z50JZ replica bike behind, good starter bike for the project as the bike is already rego'ed and fully licensed….

Metal fabrication shed down the road milled and cut a few stainless steel axle and stainless steel bar ends for the custom bike projects.









Had a few screws modded as well while over at the metal shed, looks great after some spit and polish….

nice build have you fitted a bigger motor in the bike like a 150cc or 160cc to give it more top speed and power.

Let's move on with the Supermoto build. Fastway foot pegs installed, they are by far the best footrests I have come across so far.

Very cool minis you've got there. The quality of some of the mini bike stuff that comes out of Japan is amazing. I had an nsr50 converted to and nsf100 fully outfitted with all the goodies. I have to say my favorite par of that bike was the gale speed forged wheels and gcraft triples with rs125 forks. Looking forward to more pics.

Beautiful work. That Takegawa build must be pricey!

What type of figure is it to import one of those Honda engines from Thailand?

The only thing holding me back from getting a CT-70 is the lack of speed keeping up with everyday traffic.

Keep posting. These bikes are amazing.

Are there any ride reports involving these cohorts?
