Here's another picture from the Honda Collection Hall in Japan.



The bike with the white tank that says "Honda 50" is the Z100, which was the first mini Honda ever made. Few known to exist, and if you can locate one, they sell for $15-$20K! Just above it, the bike with the white tank and black knee pads is the CZ100 that wasn't imported into the US, and those sell for big $$ too. The Z100 was made for one of the World's fairs, and was used as a carnival ride for kids. People thought the kids looked like a bunch of Monkeys riding around on the bikes, thus the term "Monkey" bike came into existance.

You may want to look at the market first before jumping into that venture. The vintage market has tanked completely since 2001-2002. You can pick up bikes for 1/2 of what you could 2 years ago. I've had projects I've barely broke even on, and some that have been loss leaders.



Unless you can find restored 1979 elsinores that go for big money, fix it up for yourself and ride it...
