I don’t normally feature scooters, but you’ll understand why I have to share this with you once you take a look at how nice this Elite is.
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 has just 1,127 miles and everything is said to work. The only non-original aspect is an aftermarket LED light bulb – even the tires are original. The bodywork is in great shape for a 32-year old bike though there are a couple of small scuffs and the seller includes close-up photos of the damage in the listing. It’s ready to display (if that’s a thing that people do with Elites) but if you want to ride this regularly you should replace the original tires.
