Description

"The Monkey bike is the name given by Honda to one of their small, low powered motorcycles introduced in the 1960s. The first Honda Monkey was the 1961 Z100 with later Monkeys designated Z50. These vehicles all had a 4.5hp, 49cc single horizontal cylinder four-stroke engine and a seat height of less than 22”. The very first Monkey bikes did not have any suspension, but this was soon added to the front forks.
This extremely rare example of the eponymous Monkey Bike is offered in stunning blue with a chrome tank and was first registered in the UK on 10th July 1970. The bike is presented in great condition throughout. These cheeky runabouts are great fun but are becoming difficult to find and therefore a very collectable item.
