We bought 8 abandoned Honda Z50 mini bikes recently, and today, we're restoring one of Honda's Monkey bikes to its former glory. We're doing a low-buck budget restoration on this bike, disassembling it, giving it a thorough cleaning, treating and painting the rust in the frame, repairing the fuel tank, clear coating the bike, and swapping a 125cc 4 speed semi auto engine onto it, making it one fast Z50. Tboltusa.com sent us the 125cc SSR engine and all other components we needed for the swap, and it turned out great!
Thanks for Watching!

You know every single time IKE is using that epoxy putty whether it be to fix a gas tank or anything else he always says I should probably be wearing gloves well bud I should probably wear gloves when I use it also but I never do that probably has a lot to do with our generation LOL we were taught to work on cars without gloves

Well I'm in between you and John generation I'm in my mid-30s could have something to do with the fact that I was raised by a mechanic that never used gloves unless it's on an old rust box that's going to cut your hands

I used our Z 50 and Trail 70 at times to bring the cows in for milking on our dairy farm here in Michigan. It helped to have the handlebars that folded down to go under the electric fence.

Back in the 70s and 80s they made a liquid that would have sealed up those holes really good don't know if they still make it and don't remember the brand and on the outside grind it in spread Marine text nice and even that's what I used to do anyway

A video bun and the moped works very well but what you have done cannot be called a restoration, if you change the engine, you are throwing the motorcycle away just out of boredom, it's a shame, another beautiful mini motorcycle in the trash.

I can’t believe the price difference, to be honest around here in my location you’d get $750 easily in asis condition for those. They are pretty hard to find and bring top dollar no matter the condition. A trail70 sells for $1500 in poor condition

I've been watching you guys for a couple years now restore sevral projects,and I always wanted to restore something like yall did.Well my grandma is moving into a new house,and me and my mom are moving into her old house and taking over the payment. She's had this exact same honda mini trail stuffed deep in her shed for as long as I've been alive and I've always wanted to fix it,well I'm almost 16 now,and I asked her if the bike could stay with the house and I could fix it up.and she told me yes,its the exact same bike tires are flat and dry rotted for sitting for so long its been sitting basically since the 70's.and I cant tell if the original paint is brown or not because of all the rust.but I am so lucky that yall fixed the same exact bike up,I cant wait to get to working on it! Edit:also if you guys see this the bike has no compression on the Kickstart, annything I should try to fix it,or what it may be?

you guys need a sand blaster with all the rust lol and maybe a paint shaker to shake gravel around in the gas tanks . Also maybe Bondo would be a good choice on the tanks ? I mean it's spreadable and dries pretty fast . OR maybe a fiberglass patch kit ?

Kinda disappointing, put a chinese junk engine in a classic. Made bike worthless. AND not a classic. But hey it moves. Cutting corners for a budget is not the way on these oldies. Sell ssr motor and fix oem. That's the way to go. Thumbs up on all the elbow grease work done to get it going.

When I repaired the fuel tank on my '79 Corolla, I used a special type of metal solder for the big holes, filed them down, submerged the tank in water to check for leaks and then used RedKote tank sealer after the inside was cleaned! It worked perfectly!

I'm 99% SURE that I'm the ONLY here that can say that I've owned (thank you, Dad...R.I.P.) both the Z50 and the CT70 as brand new bikes. Fun fact, I still have my 1981 CT70 that he bought new for me at the age of 12. I'm 51 now, and in the slowwwww process of a full restoration. It is 98% rust free as it was kept inside a storage room with HVAC for 24 years before I brought it to my garage 6 years ago. Frame has been professionally repainted Ferrari (literally, using their paint codes) red. "Tahitian Red," from Honda, wasn't red enough for me, so I've gone full custom. Great videos guys.... very fun to watch!
