The Military CAN-AM motorcycle was originally manufactured in Canada by Bombardier Motorcycles. Used by the British Army to replace the old BSA B40 model. They were supplied under two different contracts the first FVE22A/36 in 1978 and the second FVE22A/88 in 1980 and so referred to as MKI and MKII respectively although in reality there were very few differences.

This bike is a MKII supplied for use 13/11/1980 to 118 Field Squadron (V) and saw service as 34 HG 38 before it was sold 20/01/1987 when it showed 7181 miles as can be seen from the form 654 supplied with the bike. It was then registered on a Q plate 01/08/1987 and is sold with V5C and in full running order. Still painted in Military colours and sporting the odd battle scar.

1977 Honda Z50A Monkey Bike
Complete with French Registration Document
2 x Keys
Frame Number: Z50A 399566
Engine Number: Z50A 445297
Current Mileage Shown:0,323 kilometers
French Registration Number: 6144 JM 76

In the 1960's a Japanese Amusement Park owner called 'Tama Tech' had Honda produce 50cc motocross bikes for children to use, Honda soon realised the enjoyment people got from the bikes and decided to offer their own series to the general public. The Z-100 was the first road legal version which then went on to become the Z50 which was released in 1967.

This French registered bike was recently brought to the country and has a nice patina, with what appears to be mostly original paint. The mileage may be correct and it has the rarer large headlight fitted.

NOVA registered in full running order and comes complete with the correct form to apply for UK age related registration.
