Scotty’s NZeta 501

A piece of New Zealand history.

Restored NZETA scooter with a bit of history. Used as a workshop runabout for a few years then sat in a shed from around 1980 until 2008. Restoration started 2008 and finished in 2012. Has done approx 1500 Miles since full restoration. (Speedo in miles not kms).

Lots of new parts fitted and all chrome work redone. Has performed well since restoration and now has a few blemishes and chips in the paintwork.

Look around the front headlamp, rear brake lever and the rear handle.

Converted to 12 volt and has the original electric starter. Comes with the original tool kit, pump and owner’s manual.

Has even done a ride to the Cold Kiwi.

I have the original number plate which could be put back on as a personal plate if required. Also have some spare parts that will go with the bike.

Scotty recently sold his NZeta 501 for $10K, so lets get building / restoring out there!

About Jim

I like the simplicity of scooters, their classic design and the quirky people that ride and restore them.

    Hi guy’s my name is Steve Watt I own a 501 that I have striped down to bare metal and renovated . I am in the process of assembling the scooter I took loads of photo’s, but not enough of the engine and drive train mountings. I know that some of you have done some great renovations of your own and I was wondering if anyone could provide me with some photos of the engine and drive train mounting I really need to get her back together and back on the road I will post a series of pics once she is back up and running. Many thanks guy’s.
