Would that be Russ who built it or ferretdax i think it was that bought it from him?

Just found some photos of it being built.

At the time i was trying to build a CZ100 type copy from a Z50K1/2 frame but never finished it and sold the bits on,this was the set of forks i started to build using QA50 5" wheels,CF70 fork body with bits welded on and the top part of the bar risers made from cut down ATC110 fork legs.

Yes was built with the stock Z50 hardtail forks as Russ didn't want to build a solid set like the Z50M.
Russ also made the seat brackets and the tail light/number plate bracket.

Heres a few I owned and /or built in the past.
The z50r was great fun to build and ride esp with the yx140 motor in .
The gold bike was a ornament more than a useable bike ,you only had to look at it ,and it got a mark on it .
The monkey with the gorilla tank on was bought as is , and gave me a few years pleasure riding . :D
Im currently working on a crf supermoto build which is in the c90 thread .

Russ sold it to Richie from Middleborough who sold it on after a particularly hair raising ride, which put him off 5 inch wheels for life
