    Dave mac,
    Thanks for the compliment

    Guard is homemade. it is a 1" aluminum strip from Home Depot. 1" X 1/8" x 48". Cut to fit. Round the ends to desired radius then speed holes drilled out for fun. (Always use an odd number of holes - looks best with odd versus even numbers) Primed, painted with cloud silver as a base coat then several coats of candy red. Tank is the same color. Some rubber washers, red anodized washers with stainless bolts - red guard done for the time being. Will be clear coated when I have some other items ready for clear too.

    Had so much fun with the first tank/guard combo, red, that I scored another tank. It and another color coordinated guard "in the process of".

    I like the way your build is going, Very tastefully done. Are those CHP fork lowers for the disc brake or something different?

    Thanks, loop.
    The upper tubes are the stock Honda z50's. The internals and disc set-up are the red fork set from CHP. The caged bearing set provided w/ CHP forks works on the hardtails. The CT70 fork bushing discussed above is needed. The CHP fork assembly is loosey-goosey in the stock tubes.

    By switching parts around I've created some issues with the hardtail, BUT, the whole fork setup as sold by CHP (red tubes and internal components) isn't loose. The suspension is firm and there is no slop where the fork slides up into the tubes. Its tight on this set and has dramatically improved this z50r's overall feel.

    David R,
    I never had a mini growing up. My dad was an insurance adjuster and saw a lot of motorcycle wrecks. He saw a lot of blood, guts and broken body parts. There was no way he would condone me riding motorcycles much less buy me one (even if we were just going all of 10 mph bouncing around in the fields and woods around the neighborhood). I can remember crying like a two year old baby girl around Christmas and my birthdays knowing that I wouldn't be getting a mini bike. So, 50 years later, I finally got one.

    dave mac,
    Seat is a Honda part. I splurged and bought an original from CHP a while back. It is a split seam one with the "Honda" logo already on the back of the seat in silver.

    Lots to do, but having fun, Rick

    Funny what your Dad thought, my Mom was the same way, but now after looking back on a literal lifetime of riding all types of on and off road motorcycles and minis (also snowmobiles, jet ski, boats, ATC, on and on and on) I know FAR, FAR more people who have been injured on BICYCLES than on ALL of the motorized machines I mentioned combined. In fact my own Mother got hit by a car on her bicycle despite her resistance to me getting a mini back in the day for safety reasons. there's risk in EVERYTHING in life, even just sitting on the couch...might as well go and ride something cool and have some fun!

    Amen ad well spoken. I like to think that because my dad didn't let me have a mini back then as a kid, I never had the opportunity to "grow out of it" or get "burned out" on motorcycles. Thus, now, in my mid 50s, my passion for all things two wheeled and motorized is never ending. I've always enjoyed playing golf with family and friends, working on the landscape around the house and practicing/playing guitar, but motorcycles by far takes up most of my leisure thoughts and time. It has always been, and probably always will be my favorite hobby (whether riding or wrenching). Again, because dad said no back then, I now have a several motorcycles of all different genres, dirt bikes, street bikes, motards, dual purpose, even a kart and now mini bikes out in the shop.

    Speaking of shop. Mock up of front number plate. Will be white plastic with black background. Like them both, but.....

    Been lurking but not doing much mini work last several months, BUT things are moving again. Motor halves, TB 88cc cylinder and stock head at machine shop for case bore (skirt a lil to wide to fit down in cases) and head clean. In the mean time everything else is good and ready for install.

    Once motor parts make it back to the house, new seals, gaskets, kicker shaft and the below TB parts get installed. The fore mentioned cylinder and piston kit, 20mm intake, carb, filter and ignition kit. Excited to say the least.

    Great build so far. Gives me hopes for my 71, and I would venture to say I picked it up in slightly worse conditions than yours. I am sure I will end up asking you questions if you do not mind whenever I get the chance to actually start mine.

    94dcls, thanks, questions don't bother me at all, but I'm not the expert by any means. Many very knowledgeable and talented guys on here. I've just taken a little from some of the cool builds already done and mixed in what I wanted.

    Because motor parts are out, I had some shop time earlier this week, new Honda front fork pistons were installed in both lower legs. Actual forks had to be ground down to get pistons on, but once on fork legs and then reinstalled up in the fork tubes, ALL slop is gone. Bouncey yet stiff. CT70 fork pistons are the setup!!! (post #29 above)

    Stock headlight wont fit b/c of the Fast 50's top bridge and handlebar clamp setup (the last picture shows how far forward the clamp is). That setup extends to far out over where the stock headlight is mounted. Since the headlight wasn't going to be used, I had to fill the void w/ something, so homemade number plate it is. I made up a little aluminum bracket and hacked up an old Yamaha YZ number plate I've had floating around here for the last 20 years. A little cutting, trimming, grinding, anodized washer, some black number plate background material and a mini Honda sticker - BOOM! - done. Quite content w/ how it turned out.

    Some more pic because everybody likes em:
