Having conquered the world during the 1960s by producing millions of 'step-thru' mopeds based on it's original C100 Super Cub of 1958, Honda greatly expanded its range of this type of machine during the 1970s, offering a bewildering variety of models catering for every taste. Built initially with an overhead-camshaft engine but subsequently with an overhead-valve type, the PC50 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 gear change. 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. Believed restored, this example of one of the most desirable of all classic Honda mopeds was first registered in the UK in March 2013 and purchased by James from marque specialists David Silver Spares (sales invoice on file). Last used in 2014, the machine currently displays a total of 2,939 kilometres on the odometer and is described as in generally very good condition. Only minimal re-commissioning should be required before further use. Additional documentation includes a dating certificate, expired MoT (2014) and a V5C.
