About the Author
Jeremy Polson and his brother Chad were introduced to the Honda Mini Trail by their father, Rod, in the 1980s. Jeremy and Chad acquired their first Mini Trail Z50 in elementary school and became thoroughly hooked on the mini two-wheelers when they restored that original Mini during high school. That same summer Jeremy did not have to share the Mini Trail Z50 with his brother for long, as he acquired a mighty green 1975 CT-70 that he still owns. More than 200 small-displacement Hondas have passed through Jeremy’s hands since that time.
The best-selling Honda ever, the long-running Honda Mini Trail, was available in a huge range of models, even within each model year. The Honda Mini Trail Enthusiast’s Guide covers all Honda Mini Trails and Z50 bikes produced between 1968 and 1999. Author Jeremy Polson begins with a brief introduction of the models that led up to the Mini Trail, and then jumps into a thorough analysis of the many models and iterations that Honda has offered through the years.Despite the worldwide popularity of Honda’s best-selling model, no other Mini Trail book had been published, and the accuracy of information found on the Internet is suspect at best. For Z50 collectors and enthusiasts, this book presents facts and figures found nowhere else.In addition to the hard facts regarding each model of each year, this book is filled with many rare photos that track the evolution of the Mini Trail, and unravel its mystery.
