The Honda Elite is one of the most common scooters of the 80s. It was introduced in 1984 as a 125cc model, though the next year it became a 150. It was sold in the US for another three years. The “Elite” title was given to a family of models ranging from 50 to 250cc. It was known as the CH150 or the Spacy in other markets. When the displacement was bumped to 150 in 1985, Honda split the bike into two models: the standard and the Deluxe. The standard had analog gauges and a fixed headlight while the Deluxe got a little fancier with a digital dashboard and a retractable headlight. By 1986, Honda killed the standard option.
The 150cc four-stroke motor was paired with a “V-matic” CVT and it was capable of 60-65 miles per hour depending on the size of the rider. Dry weight was 225 pounds. For more information on the mid-sized Elite, check out the Motor Scooter Guide.
This example is said to be all original except for the battery, and everything is said to work. It comes with the owner’s manual, a cover (unclear if it’s OEM or aftermarket), and a trunk. Find this Elite for sale in Pickering, Ontario, Canada for ~$1,415 here on Kijiji.
