    Z50 Book

    Found this new Z50 book. This paper copy book is 144 pages of rare photos of each model and shows the evolution of the Honda Mini Trail over its lifespan. For the Z50 Enthusiasts, this book presents facts and figures found nowhere else.
    It covers all Z50's from 1969-1999 in color.
    You will not be dissapointed in this book. A few Planet Minis members are credited in the book. There is no ZB50...

    1968-1999. I don't have the book but I believe it is for US market bikes only.

    The book has the 1967 Z50M too and it mentions the CZ. Here is a pic of the table of contents and the acknowledgements.

    I had been wondering if he acknowledged Gary Lewis of VHM. Good to see that he gave him a nice mention.

    The bike on the cover looks exactly like the one I had when I was a kid. Same color and everything.
