The most produced motor vehicle in history, Honda’s Super Cub is still in production (and just got a 125cc facelift with the powertrain from the Grom). These wonderful bikes, which changed the face of motorcycling in the United States in conjunction with the famous marketing campaign, “You meet the nicest people on a Honda.” It was a motorcycle for the people, with features like an underbone frame to make mounting the bike easier, an enclosed chain that kept clothes clean, and a leg shield that blocked road debris. All this plus the semi-automatic transmission turned the Super Cub into an appliance, as opposed to a hobby, and opened up motorized two-wheel transport to a much broader consumer base.

This example (VIN: C100R091341) has just 2,965 miles and it’s said to be in great running condition/good overall condition. It was bought new by someone in the military, then sold to the current owner’s uncle (who was also in the military) with a few hundred miles on it. The owner’s uncle commuted on it to a job at the post office for years, eventually gifting it to the seller in 2005 “on the condition I would keep her running. I have done that and much more but it’s now time for her to move on to a new home as my family has little to no interest in maintaining her.” The bike has covered just 10 miles in the last 15 years, but it’s a good runner that you can enjoy as is or use as the basis for a restoration. I’m hoping the next owner does the former! The seller calls it a ’66 but notes that it’s titled as a ’68.
