Renovation of Honda Z50J
Honda Z50J pulled up from boiler room and Suzuki just after summer maintenance.

Suzuki got new mudguards and freshly painted engine covers. Everything else is just scrubbed clean with cloth.

Honda has had some improvements including 124cc engine and 20mm Keihin carburettor and new tires.

Bought this one over year ago for 30eur. After countless hours of work and a lot of money it looks like this. It's a real shame that I didn't take any "before" pictures of this moped.

Now it has been fitted with new tires and a 124cc engine.
