BFS Honda CZ100 1964 Original 1177 miles
BIKE IS SOLD
1964 Honda CZ100, this is the little bike that started it all. Honda built these bikes to test the small bike market and wow what hit they made with their mini bikes. If you are a collector them you know that this is the holy grail of the Honda Mini Bikes. I know of only 4 of these in the US and this is the only original condition one that I know of out of these 4 bikes. As they say in collecting, anything can be restored but they are only original one time. Original grips, handle bars, throttle assy, handle bar knobs. foot peg rubber, fuel cap, fuel tank, fuel tank side panels and rubber side tank panels, seat cover, headlight and taillight, tires, paint, motor, carb, kick starter and rubber, not sure about the chain and sprockets, but they sure look original to me and on an on.
I will try to list everything that I know about the bike from the time that I purchased this bike in 1997. The gentleman that I purchased the bike from lived in Virginia, as you can see from the vintage tag. He told me that his father was serving in Vietnam and on his way home, he purchased this bike in England and put it on the transport plane back, with him. When the bike arrived in my possession, I cleaned the carb and rode the bike down the street a couple of time, top speed, 27 mph. Muffler was covered in holes and I purchased a replacement muffler form a company named Monkey Bike UK, I think that they are now out of business. I also had the muffler guard and handle bars re-plated about 10 years ago. Everything else on the bike is in the condition that it was when I purchased the bike. I do have an NOS rubber seal that goes between the carb and the frame, that is pictured but not currently installed on the bike. The tires hold air and are in very good condition for 52 year old tires. There is a small pad that has been attached to the frame on the rear section of the right hand side of the frame. I am not sure what this is or its function but you can clearly see this in the pictures, not sure it if is factory, I do not believe so as it has flat head screws, which the Japanese did not use, it was there when I purchased the bike and I have left it as well.
This bike is a piece of Motorcycle history and it is not something that you would ride or give to a child to enjoy. With 1177 miles on it, this is something that would be displayed in a collection as I have done for the past 19 years. I do not have a title for this bike as it did not when I purchased the bike and I am selling this item the same way in which I purchased it, BILL OF SALE only
