Awesome! I have been wanting to redo a z50. I have a handful of rupp minibikes that I tinker with, and am in the process of picking up a pipe bender to start making a few custom pit bikes. (nitrous wheely mini-bike perhaps...???) Now all I need is time haha.

Anybody else into these old minibikes?

Too bad you're not closer, we could go riding minis together.

What drives us to do this??? Look outside - 4 more inches of snow and 30mph wind.

The bike is looking good - I like the green! You can't beat the compulsive energy that comes from reassembly.

Watch out, I hear that there is lead in those bikes. Please resist the urge to try to eat your minibike...
