    That's a Chinese clone...knockoff Z50.
    Might be fun if it's cheap and easy.

    The guy wants $300.00 for it and says it runs good. I can recover the seat. What do you think? is it worth it?

    Since you asked I’ll give my opinion. It’s not worth anything. But, it is worth what your willing to pay as long as you accept its only value is the fun you get out of it. Don’t mis understand my comment I have purchased a clone and had a lot of fun with it. I did end up replacing more than I wanted to for safety reasons; hubs, axels,swing arm bolt. the clone versions of these parts were not something I wanted to risk my well being on.

    I had one of these...i purchased it from a guy that was in 9/10 condition and payed 150 for it in the northern va area. It was a non runner, but that was because it had sat for a long time and carb was gummed up. I rebuilt that carb, new battery, and new signals from being wrecked and the bike was a lot of fun. I ended up selling it for 500 after 2 years and gave my daughter a trx70 instead. She wasn't quite ready for red panda yet, so now she has "smoothie" her 1986 trx70. Oh, and mine also had a street legal title and wasn't missing all the parts this one is missing.

    As said above, it's worth whatever you want to pay for it and if you can extract 300 of fun from it, that's for you to decide.
