In 1974 the Honda Motor Company produced a small toy scooter named the Honda Kick 'N Go. It was a three wheeled scooter constructed of a steel frame with plastic wheels and was intended for children under 135 pounds. The Kick 'N Go was produced in red, yellow, silver and blue and was sold exclusively through Honda dealerships.
The Kick 'N Go is propelled forward by kicking the pedal down which turns a chain through a series of gears that turn the rear wheel. Steering is accomplished by leaning one way which causes the front axle to pivot on a rubber mount. The brake is a simple hand brake with a metal shoe that drags on the rubber tire.
In 1976, a larger, two wheeled version, titled the "Kick 'N Go 2" was released intended for larger children and adults . At the same time, a three wheeled Kick 'N Go Senior was released based on the size of the Kick 'N Go 2.
Later the same year two children were killed while riding Kick 'N Go's. It was ruled that children did not posses the strength and balance to ride the Kick N' Go's safely. As a result, production ceased and several units were recalled in the U.S.

Need Parts ?? - I have been receiving several emails a week from people world wide looking for Kick 'N Go parts. Unfortunately, I do not have any.
The springs and chain are pretty universal and most hardware stores can help. There may be a few Kick 'N Go parts left in some Honda parts warehouses through out the world. Remember, these were originally sold through Honda motorcycle dealers and not the Car dealers. It may be worthwhile to attend your local Honda motorcycle dealer and have them try and order the part by the PART NUMBER (found in the part list in the instruction manuals). You will need the part number as very few dealers will still keep the old microfiche on hand to look up the numbers.
