Classic Honda 50’s Australia is the trading name for Tama Tech Pty Ltd. The founders of this company are Jaimie and Nichole Dodds. Established in January 2008, Tama Tech Pty Ltd shares its name with the amusement park in Japan where the Honda Monkey bike was first introduced at the start of the 1960’s.

Where It All Began

“It was back in 1961 that a curious mini-motorcycle was seen putting around Honda's "Tama Tech" amusement park in Japan. One of the most popular rides in the park, it sported a red frame under a white gas tank, tiny 5 inch tires and a peppy 50cc engine. Riders were said to appear, of all things, simian, and henceforth the motorcycle came to be known as the Honda Monkey. Looking more like a toy than a motorcycle, the compactness and fresh appearance of the Monkey scored high with fans of all ages. Honda revamped the Z100 park version for use on public roads, and brought out the CZ100 model which began to be exported in 1963. The first model to be marketed in Japan was the improved Z50M Monkey, which featured folding handlebars and seat for easy stowing in a passenger car.”
