We started with a 1971 Z50A, K2 model that supposedly had been restored. Closer inspection revealed a spray can restoration, with most of the original bolts missing. Poorly covered seat with bad seat pan, and a lot more.
This bike is a perfect candidate for a complete  and proper restoration.
Re Assembly
During teardown, we discovered the bike was originally Candy Red. The Customer decided to return it to its original color.
