I was to bring in the head to a machine shop for a valve job, but something happened (don't really know what) and it never made it.
My daughter e-mailed her other 13 year old buddies about her prowness on a motorcycle and that she rides "Motocross". My daughter has never even seen an MX track let alone rode on anything other than my lawn and the street.

I have made this claim numerous times: "Z50's are the best motorcycles ever made!"

Go figure. He let us race at his house back in the day. We had a Taco Race. Eat, ride a lap. That was before he was worth so much!
If you can pimp the Idea right to a promotror you can get a pretty good gig going.

I just came over to the WR side and saw this thread...and had to tell you guys my experience w/these cool little bikes!
My friend who has a 1985 z50 (for a play bike around his house)...decided one day that we should jump his little 50 into the pond in his backyard. So we cut his Halfpipe in half, so now it he has 2 quarter pipes. Then we put 1 quarter pipe by the edge of the pond and staked it into the ground. Then we gassed up the ole z50 and got a good starting distance away and hit the quarter pipe going about 25 mph and soared into the air about 20-25ft high.
Then the fun part began...getting it out of the pond. So, we welded a piece of old rebar onto the swingarm and hooked 3 tiedowns to it and pulled it out with his tractor. After we got it out we turned it upside down and put it in gear and turned the wheel to pump the water out. This bike has been "ragged" on by his older brothers for 13yrs and still runs perfect and is on the stock top end.
This shows how bulletproof and fun these little bikes are. I wouldnt dare do this to my YZ426 but that z50 is a blast to ride. Hope I didnt bore you guys too much LOL!
I get my kicks on a 426!

My buds are basically the same except their cranks have been stroked and have been changed to a 12 volt total loss system. Theirs are more along the lines of 100cc.
Almost unridable until the steering dampeners were installed.
