Post Sale Update: This nifty fifty sold for $5,005 after 42 bids in Fresno, California.
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: P035951) has just 89 miles and it’s got the original CA license plate. The seller basically includes the famous phrase “ran when parked”, but this is in great cosmetic shape and it wouldn’t need much to get running even if it’s been sitting for decades. Plus it’s being sold with no reserve so we’ll see what the market thinks it’s worth.
