Honda Z50R Budget Restoration | Transforming a FORGOTTEN Honda Mini Bike

We restore Ike's Honda Z50R while he's out for his Honduki injury. This classic Honda Z50R was bought as a chassis- it's powered by a 125cc clone, and came with a painted frame, fenders, and a seat. In today's episode, we install new whees and tires, a new exhaust, and get the 125cc Lifan clone running.

    Superglue breaks down when it gets hot, around 250f, so, the first time you hit the brakes at speed, those shoes will break loose. You might try Devcon.

    china motors shifting quality is not to compare with japanese bikes. i had problems to find neutral even with manually operating clutch and so my bike dealer told me i should shift to neutral before roll out lol. never had such problems with my xt350.

    The superglue might work for show, but machinists use CA glues for workholding when you can't bolt down or chuck up the part without getting in the way of the tool. To free the part afterwards, you use a solvent or heat, generally heat because you can break the bold all the way through at once. High temp glues exist, but basic superglue ain't it.
