c.1966 Honda 49cc C100 Super Cub 'Rally' Project
Frame no. C100-P036008
Engine no. C100E-340975
The C100 Super Cub offered here is one of the rare examples fitted with the 'Rally' kit of special parts produced by the Japanese manufacturer's Honda Custom Group. Intended to widen the appeal of the humble 'step thru' and thus boost sales, there were four kits available: Roadster, Rally, Boss and Student. These kits included custom fuel tanks, seats, instruments, mudguards and handlebars but, sadly, no tuning parts. Honda's hilarious US advertising copy for the Rally ran as follows: 'The competition look is a winner everywhere you ride. With its sharp, slim-line tank with racing insignia, flashy accent stripes, big contoured seat and high bars, this bike has a real racy feel. The only thing more impressive than the styling is the performance that Honda's famous four-stroke engine delivers. Watch the girls rally 'round when you ride up!' A challenging but potentially rewarding project for the serious Honda collector, this incomplete US import is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. There are no documents with this Lot, which is offered without reserve.
