Honda cub "super cub" 50cc very rare to see one of these in the states,here is what i know for the previous owner, he was/is a truck driver he found this at one of his regular deliveries, he tried to buy it for years... They only rode it inside the factory and it is my understanding only 2 guys were "authorized" to ride it.. It supposedly came with the equipment when they were building the factory in the early 80s and was new at the time... It was there for the plant manager to get around while they were putting the plant equipment together and getting up and running, last year the plant was sold or shut down or cut way back... The truck driver asked what happened to the "little honda" they went looking for it and found it parked in an empty office, made a few phone calls and he was able to purchase it... He was scaling down and was ready to clean up... I drained & replaced the oil, cleaned the carb, drained the fuel tank (it has a fuel gauge on the top of the tank which is pretty cool) put new fuel in it... And it started right up... It is kick start only... It runs really well with a slight hint of exhaust smoke... It shows 23,000 km on the odometer which i believe is close to 14,000 miles all indoors! (except for the few miles we put on it around the house) i do not think the valves have ever been adjusted... Both mirrors are gone and the ends of their mounts are broken off in the mounts... I have not cleaned or polished or even wiped much dust off... It is pretty much like it was when i got it... As much as i'd like to keep it... I have no reason to... I thought it might be cool around campus, but they are not real big on unlicensed motorized "bikes", so i guess it will go into the "tuition" fund... It runs good and will go 35mph and just hummmm along... It looks like it came right off the streets of vietnam, it has a few scrapes as one would expect for a bike it's age... But everything works lights high /low, blinkers, dash lights, neutral light, horn, ect... I'm sure it could at least use a plug, carb adjusted or something... Note: please read!! I have no paperwork on this bike, i'm sure it has never been registered in any way... I have a guy who says he can get me a title in my name for $200 but i just didn't see the need... In advance and refund if it doesn't happen... But i can not warrant that i can do it... I never have, but willing to try... With balance in good funds before bike is moved, i can hold/store the bike inside for 30days as long as it is paid for... Bidders with 0 or less than 10 feedback must contact me before they bid of i will cancel their bid in fairness to others...
