1988 Honda 49cc Z50J Gorilla
Registration no. not registered
Frame no. Z50J-1803370
Engine no. to be advised

An important milestone in 'Monkey Bike' development was reached in 1974 with the launch of the Honda 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. In 1978 the Z50J was extensively revised with a larger fuel tank, front and rear racks, 12-volt CDI ignition, a manual clutch and a four-speed gearbox, becoming the more aggressive looking 'Gorilla'. Honda in Japan ceased production of the existing Monkey and Gorilla in 2007, pending the arrival of new fuel-injected models for 2008, making early original examples of these charismatic little machines all the more collectible. Immensely popular as paddock transport the world over, Monkeys are always in vogue. A collector's item, this un-restored Z50J Gorilla was purchased in Japan and imported into Belgium. The vendor describes the machine as '100%' original, while the optional front luggage basket is said to be very rare. There are no documents with this Lot. Keys present.
