I've been watching this Honda Mini Trail on eBay for a week or so, but not because I plan to buy it. I just love the nostalgia -- it's pretty much the exact model of mini-bike I had at five years old, except fully restored and looking awesome. I'm also fascinated by the obvious demand for these little wonders, because years ago I dreamed up a vague business plan to collect old Honda mini-bikes, restore or repair them and sell them like this. At the time I wasn't sure whether I could make any money at it, but with a few hours left in the auction, this one looks to be going for close to $3500. It might have been worth about $200 brand new in 1970, and it could now be worth three times as much as the much fancier 2008 model. But guess which one I'd rather have?
Update: Now I want to buy a 1975 MR50, for a much more reasonable price. We had one of these too, and it was one of the coolest mini-bikes ever.
