    Quite gratifying finishing a long restoration, definitely doing it all over again with the 502 now. I can hear the wife moaning in the background :-)

    Not getting another, but have a 502 in shed, waiting.

    Total coincidence with those 2 down south, the seller is the guy I bought this one off in 2009 and they would be a great start for someone, so complete, well from the outside at least, lots of hard to get bits already on one of em. You interested in them Mossy?

    They are well up the list of cool bikes I would like to own.To be honest im handy but im not sure I could do a rebuild like that justice.
    Anything that takes 2 long to finish frustrates me and frustrates my wife even more.Idd buy your one if I had the coin and a large enough house to store it in a man theme room.

    Fair enough. I got distracted with baby and new crap fixer upper house, so was stop start with this.

    I tried getting a cool scoot or two into our lounge, but the wife really is communist and blocked any hint with a swift backhand to the muush and solitary confinement.

    Greetings. I would be very interested in copies of any manuals and service sheets that you have. I have a Čezeta from the Czech Republic (where my wife is from). I want to bring it to California and any manuals in English would be very helpful.

    Please let me know if it would still be possible to get copies from you, and how to compensate you for that.

    Many Thanks!

    Hello,

    I am in great need of a copy of an NZeta manual. Did you by chance end up procuring a copy that I could possibly reimburse you to make and send another copy of? Any reply much appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Website with all you'll need

    Hi Slothrop

    Yes I have copies... but they are available online at www.saveass.com, along with plenty of good info on these scoots.

    Just checked this link and it's not working. I was on this site recently so maybe it has a temporary glitch so keep checking.

    Shout with how you get on, if all else fails, I can email you a copy, just PM me your email address.

    When I was 11 I had a Vespa 180. A guy in town had an NZetta. I could go faster than him - on either bike. He was probably 15 stone. I was probably a third of his weight.
    Seem to recall getting over 65mph on the Vespa - downhill. Think the NZetta went faster. Vespa could wheelie better!

    Many many thanks XRVrider!

    It looks like that site has been down this year, and it seems I don't have enough site privileges here on the forum to PM anyone. However I was able to access the site through the Wayback Machine at http://web.archive.org/web/201106280...://saveass.com

    Cheers!

    502 now completed as well

    Time for an update, has been a long while since I last posted about the 2 NZeta restorations I have been working on.

    Now the 502, from near the start of this thread, is restored as well. Very happy with it, very nearly 100% original, parts, paint colour etc...

    Am about to start the registration process, which is going to be tricky by the looks.

    Check the pics out anyway, it rides perfect, no rattles, behaves well for an old 2 stroke, and is loads of fun to ride.

    Have started another NZeta project, but it is a 350 twin Jawa 2 stroke beast. Am half way through bodywork on that, have the engine and it fits, just.

    Cheers all.
