1969 Honda Z50 Minitrail Restoration
1969 Honda Z50 Minitrail Project Background
This little classic came to me from Maryland in need of some work. The bike arrived partially assembled. With a specific budget in mind, we set out to create a nice piece while still maintaining a lot of the original parts on the bike. A lot of the chrome pieces were maintained including the front and rear fenders, the gas cap and the chain guard. There were a bunch of new parts as well. New handlebars, grips, graphics and few other odds and ends were supplied by the owner.
Once I figured out the motor would in fact run, I tore the bike down and began the rebuilding process. The motor was cleaned and painted, the frame was blasted and repainted, the gas tank was repaired and painted, carb cleaned and rebuilt, new cables and a host of other new items finished off this little scoot. Having an early model Honda Mini Trial will make a great addition to the owners already large collection of small Hondas.
