    Z50J was initially the same as Z50A, started in 1973 but they made them for many years after 1978, when our z50s became Z50Rs.
    The Z50Js were made for the European and Japanese market. as I recall

    They're known as J1's here in OZ. The J1 was pretty much what the rest of the world got between 73 (75 in OZ) and early 79. We didn't get different paint jobs for each year, they were either white,yellow or green. I have one that's dated 10/77 with a frame number z50j-117xxx so safe to say its a 77.
