Here is a picture of my newly aquired 1967 Z50M Small Wheel (5inch) Monkey Bike, it has since been fully restored.
And boy was that a challenge, many of the parts, came from Monkey bikes UK: link on the first page.
The engine rebuild by: Jeff Tuttobene in Walnut, Calif. To reach Jeff: call 909-595-1739...
Well here is a picture of the completed project, it took only 4 weeks from start to finish. There are only a couple of items missing, and they are on their way here, and will be on the bike soon.
* SO PLEASE RETURN OFTEN, AND SEE MY PASSION & HOBBY, AS IT GROWS *
I ONLY STARTED REALLY SERIOUSLY RESTORING MY BIKES, ABOUT 4 OR 5 YEARS AGO, WHEN I WAS RENDERED DISABLED, FROM SOME BACK SURGERY COMPLICATIONS.
I NEEDED A HOBBY & SINCE THESE BIKES HAVE BEEN MY PASSION FOR OVER 35 YEARS, SINCE GROWING UP IN SWEDEN, IT SEEMED JUST A NATURAL, TO RETURN TO MY *ROOTS* OF THIS ADDICTIVE PASSION..
IT GIVES ME THE CHANCE TO EXPRESS SOME OF MY PRIDE IN MY WORK & ALSO TO HELP HUNDEREDS OF PEOPLE, LIKE YOUR SELVES, EVERY MONTH VIA EMAIL AND PHONE CALLS, WITH RESTORATION TIPS.
IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A BIKE OR SOMEONE TO DO IT FOR YOU, PLEASE CONTACT ME & I WILL SEE WHAT I CAN DO FOR YOU.
The hardest part was to locate NEW and USED parts, I will share with you the great sources I found, as well as some SUPER people to deal with for restorations, paint and engine rebuilds.
