Honda Z50J MONKEY - £2999.99
Honda - Z50J MONKEY
This very much sought after 1984 Honda Z50J Gold Limited Edition Monkey has recently been imported from Japan where it has spent all its life. This and the fact it's only showing 1031 km (650 miles) and has been in dry storage for the last umpteen years have helped maintain its boyish good looks.
We have been unable to confirm this mileage reading. Please disregard it.
The single most important purchase for a classic restoration project is the bike to restore, whether it's going to be a commercial venture or just a hobby interest it all starts here!.
PLEASE CHECKOUT THE PICTURES........As you can see this bike has a few parts missing – Mirrors & screen being the most obvious. It has stood a while, so the battery is flat & it has some rust pitting on the handlebars, front mudguard & headlight hangers.
BUT NOW FOR THE GOOD NEWS.........This is the actual bike you are bidding on – Not library pictures from 38 years ago & it is every bit as nice as it looks here.....A true time warp machine!. The bike has a host of nice aftermarket parts like the fairing, extended swing arm, front & rear disc brake conversions, K&N style filter, custom pegs & rear brake pedal.
The wheels are straight with working brakes. Forks & yokes look straight. Mudguards are both solid. Taillight assy is good as are the headlight & indicators. Instruments & switches look ok. Carburettor is free sliding off the twist grip. Fuel tank is squeaky-clean inside and very presentable. Exhaust is original & solid. Seat is in very good condition throughout. The engine is cosmetically clean, it turns over nicely off the kick starter – sounds/feels great & has compression BUT BEST OF ALL when we gave it a few prods it fires, starts, runs & revs but it is obvious the carb needs attention as it was leaking fuel.
This is only a very brief description….If you are placing a bid reliant on parts that can’t be seen in the pictures being there and/or in serviceable condition or require any further information or more pictures please give us a call or message us.
If you are ready for a new project & have been looking for a classic Gold Monkey to restore, then look no further – THIS ONE COULD BE YOURS!!!
