James May reassembles a Honda mini bike, 303 pieces becomes one running Monkey

the Monkey was originally a kids’ ride at Honda’s Tama Tech amusement park near Tokyo.

It became an unexpected hit with adults too, and the name Monkey stemmed from how grown-ups resembled circus gorillas when perched atop the small bike. Honda saw a sales opportunity and began selling them to the public.
Thanks Marc!
