Thanks for the compliments, but....

Yeah, it shakes, if it was European it would have "lots of character"

It is a cool little bike for running around town and a few back roads on a sunny day.

That is a nice looking bike and it looks fairly unmolested.
This one, my 350F, was smooth as glass. It also had a sweet power band. Honda was pretty good at building those small displacement 4's. This was my college commuter.

I camped at Panhead City last Thursday. Very cool spot. Good grub and lots of beer.

Cheers,

Yep, that's when I took that shot.
It was a great run.

1976 honda




Honda Kick 'N Go History:


In 1974 the Honda Motor Company produced a small toy scooter named the Honda Kick 'N Go. It was a three wheeled scooter constructed of a steel frame with plastic wheels and was intended for children under 135 pounds. The Kick 'N Go was produced in red, yellow, silver and blue and was sold exclusively through Honda dealerships.


The Kick 'N Go is propelled forward by kicking the pedal down which turns a chain through a series of gears that turn the rear wheel. Steering is accomplished by leaning one way which causes the front axle to pivot on a rubber mount. The brake is a simple hand brake with a metal shoe that drags on the rubber tire.


In 1976, a larger, two wheeled version, titled the "Kick 'N Go 2" was released intended for larger children and adults . At the same time, a three wheeled Kick 'N Go Senior was released based on the size of the Kick 'N Go 2.


Later the same year two children were killed while riding Kick 'N Go's. It was ruled that children did not posses the strength and balance to ride the Kick N' Go's safely. As a result, production ceased and several units were recalled in the U.S.

Thanks Kevin, the Monkey originally came to me as a 250 with a baddly bent wheel and frork. It now has a 350 engine in it because the original one went bang. Yes the hack was built by me with the help of my brotherinlaws welding skills. I should be starting on it in ernest when the snow starts flying, and since I now know how to post up pictures I'll keep a log of the progress.
