I am currently fascinated with Japanese "Monkey" bikes. A lot of bikes get lumped into this category, but the Monkey is the name of an actual model produced by Honda. They also make the Ape and Gorilla, and then other companies produce a few more.
This one has a lot of parts from "Over Racing". You can just about build an entire bike from their catalog, and they make parts for normal full-size motorcycles as well.

I'd love to pick up an XR50/CRF50 and build something crazy, although the frames on those are very different from a Monkey/Ape frame. It might be easier to just get someone to buy an Ape for me in Japan, disassemble it, and ship it to me in a crate.
