It's not "vintage" at all, but still pretty cool! If I didn't have so many projects, I'm pretty sure one of these would be in my garage right now.

I have been eyeing those since they announced them. I started building my own version some time ago. It is getting closer . . .



Still a ways to go. I have a custom seat and fairing for it . . .

Yes, I've seen these. I think you can get the same yellow / white color as my 71. Anothere one I'd really like to have. I think they're really cool.

I had that exact bike, with the lights added in 1969! Those were the days!

Amazing the Z50 was street legal. Imagine sitting at stop light next to a big rig. Be like stepping on a bug.

Interesting. While they had lights on some models I didn't know Honda intended them to be street legal in the USA?
