  • Imported Z50JS

    Hi,

    Been a while since I had a monkey to show picture of. Here it is. Bought it on Saturday. It's my first complete, usable bike. Needs a little attention to the rusty guards, but apart from that it's tip top. Just a quick polish and degrease. Of course I'd like to do the usual mods, shocks, bore kit, etc. But I'm skint so it'll have to wait a while.

    Nice and clean, is that a stock rack on it?

      I’m pretty sure it’s a stock rack. It doesn’t look like the bolts have ever been removed. They have the correct patina (rust) on them. It’s different to the Aust delivered models.

              Got this in the mail. Pretty impressed with the record keeping. Pretty unimpressed with the price £30, but need it for the import and registration documents. No more searching around for little date codes stamped on frames etc 209BCD3E-D1D8-4BF0-88FF-9594C9CA6744.jpg

                I assume Honda Australia don't offer the dating service? Any chance you could share who/how you contacted them?

                  Is this something like Tinder for bike owners ?

                      Not 100% sure myself, but the kiddies seem to like it.

                          I’m not sure how it’ll work for Australia. I had it done because I’m on a gap year at the moment in the UK and want to bring the bike back to Aust in the future.

                          But here’s the info: (I originally phoned them, but they returned via email)

                          Please note that this can take up to 6 weeks if the information needs to be sourced from Japan.

                              Spent a little bit of coin. When I say little, I mean little. Got a GCraft look alike swingarm and wheels. Swingarm is keepspeed and the wheels are mad munk. Swingarm is ok for the price and the wheels look like theyíll be trouble with offsets and fitment. Will look into that later. But hereís some pics. Swingarm came with a cool little shifter keyring. For less than half the price of the brand name stuff I reckon it may be ok, but Iíve only just unwrapped it. Like I said once I go to fit it, thatís when the swearing may begin.
