Post Sale Update: This Ascot sold for $3,438 after 32 bids on eBay in Aurora, Colorado.
Named after Ascot Park, a former flat-track raceway in Los Angeles, the Honda Ascot (also known as the VT500) was a V-Twin standard that was styled after flat-track bikes.
It didn’t sell well, but owners are passionate about this bike – an excellent Motorcycle Classics article suggests that it’s a “tight handling, urgent machine with seamless power and acceleration.”
This example has 4,974 miles and it’s said to be all original (including the tires, so replace those before you go riding). It will need a new battery and there’s a dent in the left side of the tank.
