FOR SALE Excellent quality Model JZR CX500
Long cockpit model with Honda CX500 Engine
Registered as Honda Tricycle on original 1982 registration (not Q plate) and MOT’d to September 2016
First constructed as a JZR in 1992 although by the time I purchased it in 2006 the vehicle was showing some signs of age and some light rust at the rear of the chassis.
Rather than patch and repair I spoke with John Ziemba and decided to re-shell using a new chassis and panels which John Z kindly manufactured for me.
The car was then fully rebuilt in 2007/2008 using all new parts essentially making this a new build vehicle, since when it has only been used in the dry and covered a very modest mileage At the time of re-build the new parts included:-
- Complete chassis and body panels from John Ziemba
- Full respray
- Full braking system using braided hose throughout, new master cylinder and including the all important hydraulic rear brake conversion (done by John Z)
- Engine overhaul including new clutch with heavy duty springs (better for foot operated clutch)
- Replacement carburettors, air filters and hoses
- Bespoke wiring loom, fusebox, ignition and lighting by professional auto-electrician
- Chrome wire wheels at the front and laser cut disc solid wheel conversion at the rear
- Dashboard (crinkle finish) and switchgear
- New aero screens
- Bespoke stainless steel exhausts shaped to the body and giving an exceptional sound. The exhaust also has a balance pipe conversion at the headers for smoother running
- JZR lead bonnet badge in the style of Morgan wings – very rare
- Full and half tonneau covers Since then the vehicle has undergone a continuous programme of improvement and upgrade including:-
- New gear linkage and alloy transmission tunnel cover
- New carpet throughout
- Full professional re-trim including replacement seat pads and ‘Bentley’ stitch finish – blue with grey piping to compliment the silver paintwork
- Wood rim steering wheel
- New tyres and inner tubes
- New rear shock absorbers
- New battery
- Service kit with filters and oils
The car comes complete with an extensive array of spare parts including a spare CX500 engine (part dismantled), swing-arm, rear diff unit, clocks, radiator, coils, carburettors, electrics, CDIs, aero-screens, wide track JZR wishbones etc etc
I also have the JZR CX500 workshop manual, owners handbook and original JZR sales leaflet
The car drives superbly with a nice crisp change from the sequential gearbox, excellent acceleration and torque from the V-twin engine, outstanding handling and a superb sound from the stainless pipes.
I have thoroughly enjoyed owning this vehicle and had resolved never to sell it having invested a huge amount of time, care and money over the years.
However, with a number of other vehicles at my disposal this JZR has covered only a few hundred miles in the past few years and it is becoming increasingly difficult to justify keeping in the garage.
After a lot of deliberation I’ve decided to let somebody else enjoy it and to take on a new project.
Hence the opportunity for someone to acquire a superb genuine example of one these sought after vehicles – all the fun and look of a Morgan at a fraction of the cost of an original!
I am looking for around £9000 which represents excellent value for a vehicle of this standard and given the level of money which has been lavished on it.
Please call 07789 952591 or email for any further details or to arrange a viewing of the vehicle

JZR wanted by enthusiast Preferably I am looking for a complete JZR, but don't mind if some cosmetic or mechanical work is needed.
