Post Listing Update: This Monkey did not meet reserve despite 48 bids up to $6,200 on eBay in Chicago, Illinois.


While Honda’s newest miniMOTO is called a Monkey, the model was always previously called the Mini Trail in the US. The “Monkey” on this tank lets you know that is a JDM model, which means it also has a removable front end that US bikes did not get.

This example has 837 miles and it’s in impressive original condition – even the original Nitto tires are still on on it. The seller notes that “the year of manufacture is technically 1972, although I have it on eBay as a 1970 model, as it more closely resembles a [Mini Trail from] that model year.

Everything on the machine is original, down to the Nitto tires. It has not run in a few years, but the seller says: “if the new buyer would like a running motorcycle, I’m happy to get it running before it is picked up or shipped.
