1969 Honda Mini Trail Z50

Honda's Mini Trail 50, the cute little 'monkey bike' that taught so many Americans how to ride starting in 1968, would go on to become one of the company's best sellers, with in excess of a half-million units sold. Prior to Honda joining the minibike market segment, available machines tended to be crude, lawnmower-engined affairs with marginal brakes and dubious handling. By comparison, the Mini Trail was a technological tour-de-force in miniature, featuring an overhead-cam engine, three-speed gearbox with semi-automatic clutch, cable-operated drum brakes front and rear, and working telescopic forks.

This 1969-model K1 Mini Trail, with correct one-year-only battery and rectifier setup, is largely complete and has been the recipient of a 'running restoration' which includes a rebuilt engine and some repainting. More work would be required to bring the bike to concours condition, or simply have fun and ride it as-is.
