With the launch of the CZ100 in 1960, Honda created the class of machine known as 'monkey bikes', so called because of their diminutive stature. The power unit was the C100 step-thru's reliable overhead-valve four-stroke single that incorporated a three-speed gearbox with automatic clutch. An ultra-short wheelbase, small wheels and vestigial fuel tank were all features of a machine which, in the case of the folding handlebar version, could fit into the boot of a car. Immensely popular as paddock transport the world over they are currently much in vogue, with a flourishing owners club in the UK. The CZ100 offered here was purchased new by the current vendor's family in 1964. Restored in 2008, it currently displays a total of 3,630 kilometres (approximately 2,250 miles) on the odometer and we are advised that the previous odometer, which was replaced during restoration, showed in excess of 6,000 kilometres (approximately 3,700 miles) when removed. Described as in generally good/excellent condition, this early Honda monkey bike is offered without documents.
