Footnotes

  • With the launch of the Z100 in 1961, 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, in the case of the folding handlebar version, 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.

    Sold new in Japan, this highly original Honda Monkey has a delightful patina and is believed to be un-restored showing a recorded mileage of 7580 kilometres. The first monkey model in row with rear and front suspension.
