LOT #5.1 – 1986 HONDA Z50RD MINIBIKE – SOLD! $13,200

Are minibikes making a comeback? We think so. These bikes were super popular in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and they made their way back into the spotlight during the 2022 Scottsdale Auction. Regardless of the motivation behind their sudden popularity — whether it be for nostalgia, gifts for grandkids or for use as a pit bike — collectors are grabbing every minibike they can. You can even get a truck with your minibike these days, such as the Lil’ Indian matching minibike that came with a 1968 Chevrolet C10 Custom Pickup. It’s no surprise that Honda dominates the gallery below of top-selling minibikes at the auction, as the Japanese marque produced many popular variants.
