Maybe you will also make a career out of coming up with unique designs for the next Nanoblock motorcycle kit like the one for the Honda Super Cub.
This Nanoblocks motorcycle kit is part of the Sights to See series. When assembled, this detailed motorcycle kit fits in the palm of your hand. The kit comes with detailed instructions in English.
The manufacturer is the official Kawada company in Japan. The distribution of the kit is by the authorized distribution company of Bluefin in the United States. It was featured in the 2019 Kawada catalog on page 24-25.
Nanoblock Motorcycle Set Dimensions
The Nanoblock pieces have dimensions as small as 4 mm by 5 mm (0.16 to 0.20 inches).
An article posted on the Medium Blog says that,
“With the construction elements 4 mm by 4 mm by 5 mm, Nanoblock® is an incredible game. It allows building mini figurines of an unequaled precision.”
When complete, this kit stands about 75mm (2.95 inches) tall at the handlebars, is 60 mm (2.36 inches) tall in the back, and 140 mm (5.5 inches) long.
There are 570 tiny precision pieces in this set. You may find it helpful to use tweezers to assemble this kit. Be careful handling the small pieces because they are easy to drop and lose.
Another fun kit to assemble is the Lugia from Nanoblock’s Pokemon Collection. It is just under three inches tall and has 187 pieces. Read my review here.
This video, produced by Reviews, Tutorials & Tech, shows the older version of the motorcycle kit with only 440 pieces that the narrator says an eight-year-old can assemble.
You can see how the kit comes with tiny pieces in little plastic bags and compare them to the size of a U.S. penny. The video also briefly shows the included instruction page.
The Nanoblock motorcycle kit has a difficulty level of four out of five, with 570 pieces to assemble. It is suitable for children ages 15 and older. There is a choking hazard for small children under the age of three. It takes an average person about 30 minutes to finish this set.
There are custom designs made by Christan Design and others that have many more pieces and take much longer to complete. Their designs include a McDonald’s, a Seven-Eleven convenience store, corporate logos, movie characters, Pokemon, and more.
The biggest challenge is working with the tiny pieces. Many find having a magnifying glass with a light attached to it on a flexible stand helps them put the pieces together more easily.
When you are ready for a big challenge, then try to make the Himeji Castle. It is a beautiful historical Japanese castle.

The best way to understand how to put this kit together is to watch a video of how the pieces are assembled.
In this video, produced by Harmony Hut, you can watch a sped-up tutorial of putting the pieces of this motorcycle kit together.
You may want to slow the video down by adjusting the playback speed settings in YouTube to see more clearly the actual steps if the video goes by too fast.

Final Warning 😉 Once you start putting this Nanoblock set together, you can easily get addicted to them. I am really happy with this motorcycle kit. It looks nice on my shelf next to the Nanoblock Space Center kit that I reviewed in this article.
