c.1970 Honda PS50 Sports Moped
Frame no. PS50-A29241
Engine no. PC50EA-A78455
Built initially with an overhead-camshaft engine but subsequently with an OHV type, the PC50 moped arrived in 1970. A simple to use, 'twist-'n-go' model with single gear and automatic clutch, the economical PC50 was soon almost as common a sight on UK streets as the ubiquitous C100. A rare variant much less commonly seen was the PS50, a sports model featuring a 'proper' fuel tank, 'racing' seat and three-speed gearbox with manual clutch and twist-grip gearchange. Most were sold in France and those that survive command high prices on the rare occasions they are offered for sale. They are fervently coveted by collectors. This un-restored example of one of the most desirable of all classic Honda mopeds has covered only 2,930 kilometres (approximately 1,800 miles) from new and is presented in exceptional condition. There are no documents with this Lot. This vehicle, having completed less than 6,000kms, may be deemed to fall in the NMT category under NOVA if the vehicle is registered in the UK.
