Introduced in 1958, Honda's classic C100 Cub 'step-thru' gave millions of people the world over their first taste of two-wheeled mobility. Better built, more powerful and more reliable than the majority of contemporary mopeds while endowed with handling superior to that of the small-wheeled scooter, the Cub set new sales records for motorcycle production and continues to be immensely popular today. One of the more short-lived variants was the C240 Port Cub, which featured a slightly different frame and did away with the plastic leg shield, leaving the engine exposed. There were only two-speeds in the gearbox and the end result was a model that was cheaper to make, expanding its appeal to wider markets. Produced during the 1962 and 1963 seasons only, the C240 is as rare a classic Honda 'step-through' you could hope to find. There are no documents with this incomplete example, which is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. A great winter project for the more experienced restorer of classic Hondas. No reserve.
