When Honda introduced their mini bikes in the late '60s, they were a smashing success. Affectionately called “monkey bikes”, they were actually street legal with headlights and taillights. Most original riders, however, did not have a license as they were too young to obtain one! The first ones were also known as “hard tails” due to their lack of suspension. The later ones such as this bike on offer became known as “soft tails” because they now had a swing arm with conventional shock absorbers. Colors and graphics would change throughout the years.
