About Honda Z50
A massive, roaring bike does not match your quirky, fun personality, which makes the Honda Z50 the perfect ride. Introduced in 1967, this mini bike carries the cute moniker, "monkey bike" because grown-ups look a little like monkeys as they ride, with arms bent and knees rising high. The reason for this ungracious riding position is that Honda created this diminutive bike for kids. The 50cc bikes have enough power to allow children to have a little excitement. However, they are an even greater hit with big kids that do not want to leave the fun of childhood behind. Honda came out with a range of street legal Z50s so everyone in the family can ride these miniature motorcycles. The earliest models are high on the wish lists of many collectors, making then a little harder to find, but there are brand new versions that still have the delightful charm of vintage bikes. If you are lucky enough to find an older model and want to restore it, fortunately, you can find used parts. You might want a Honda Z50 engine to restore the subtle power the bike needs, or a Honda Z50 frame if you want to build up a bike from scratch.
