Having conquered the world during the early 1960s by producing millions of 'step-thru' mopeds based on it's original C100 Super Cub of 1958, Honda went on to expand greatly its range of similarly utilitarian machines. Introduced in 1966, the P50 (also known as the P25) represented a complete break from the Super Cub concept, mounting its 49cc single-cylinder four-stroke engine within the rear wheel assembly. BSA's 'Winged Wheel' was similar in layout and Honda itself had offered a 'clip-on' of this type (the F model Cub) back in 1952, though both of those had been two-strokes. Producing a giddy 1.2bhp at 4,200rpm, the P50 was capable of a top speed of 25mph. This particular P50 was first registered on 1st October 1967 and according to the accompanying V5C registration document has had only two former keepers. James acquired the Honda in April 2014. Last used in 2013, the machine will require re-commissioning, including curing a fuel leak from the carburettor, before returning to the road. Accompanying documentation includes the aforementioned V5C, an expired MoT (October 2014) and a DVLA Form V55/1 vehicle registration application, completed by the immediately preceding owner and endorsed by the East Anglian Cyclemotor Club, membership of which (or of the National Autocycle and Cyclemotor Club) would be the ideal way to enjoy such a machine. An instruction manual and spare parts price list are included in the sale.
