1991 Honda Z50J Baja Limited Edition
Frame no. Z50J-1700050

With the launch of the CZ100 in 1963, Honda created the class known as 'Monkey Bikes', so called because of their diminutive stature. The power unit was the C100 step-thru's reliable four-stroke single, while an ultra-short wheelbase, small wheels, and a vestigial fuel tank were all features of a machine which, could be fitted into the boot of a car. An important milestone in Monkey development was reached in 1974 with the launch of the Z50J, which featured front and rear suspension like a 'proper' motorcycle while retaining the overhead-camshaft engine and 8" wheels, first seen on the Z50A respectively. Immensely popular as paddock transport the world over, Monkeys are currently much in vogue, and original examples of these charismatic little machines can only become increasingly collectible.
Inspired by Honda's legendary Africa Twin adventure bike, this rare and collectible Honda Baja Limited Edition Monkey Bike is one of only 3,000 built in 1991 for the Japanese market only. A 1st-series Baja, it is presented in effectively 'as new' condition - totally original and untouched - and with only 27 kilometres on the odometer. The machine is offered with Japanese registration documents and Belgian customs document E705 (EU taxes paid).
