Your Collection: 1974 Z50Sunday, April 14, 2013 | 6:00 AM
This weeks collection comes to us from Scott Cameron.
I purchased this bike in Stockton, CA back in October 2012. I stripped every item off the bike and restored each component to its original condition as best I could. Every black painted item was blasted and powder coated, and every silver item had the same treatment. I also had every chrome piece on the bike re-plated to match the original as close as I could. I also had the tank, forks and side cover repainted. The only items that are NOT original stock Honda components are the tires, tubes, and cables. Everything is factory stock. I even have the original tool kit.
The bike runs flawless and is in my opinion in exceptional condition for being 39 years old. I hope you feel the same as I do. I am not sure what I am going to do with it in the future but for now it looks pretty darn nice just sitting in my office as a conversation piece. And YES!, I definitely ride it.
