Z50 restomod with sidecar!

This will be the next project on my list to get done, i allready got a great start on it. I tore it apart and was gonna use the stock engine but its really messed up. i will probably part some things on ebay. The frame is good and the tank in awsome condition after i got 40 years of dirt and dust off it! This is gonna be a custom build with a modified motor and custom exhaust so keep watching this one will excite and suprize you!

dahhmmm, I just stuck that that 110 I had for sale out to the curb yesterday, no one wanted it and I was tired of it being in my way..... I have the head yet, it's almost finished ported (E22)....

I have a bad azz 170cc engine too (clone of a Honda 50)... it's all new with a 28mm mikuni,ported and polished head, oil cooler, only prob is the block needs to be heliarched, I had a kicker that was too wide (stuck way out past the eng) and with the high compression it put too much bind downwards on the kicker shaft and it cracked the block..... I have over $800 in it, I'd sell it for $350 or trade for???
