9-7-19 Update: This adorable Honda has actually made its way to my new auction site, and it has met reserve with the auction ending in just a few hours. If you want to snag it for yourself, head on over to Iconic Motorbike Auctions Powered by Bike-urious, where you can find it in Marina del Rey, California with bidding up to $2,500 (plus 7% buyers fee).
Post Listing Update: This EZ-9 did not meet reserve despite 25 bids up to $2,650 on eBay.
This is one of the coolest, quirkiest two-wheelers I’ve ever featured. The regular EZ-9 (known as the EZ-90 Cub in the US) is already interesting enough with the 2-stroke motor, enclosed bodywork, and swingarm that doubled as the rear suspension. But this JDM version has an aftermarket street legal kit and it’s adorned in a Rothmans livery that matches the iconic replica paint job that Honda applied to the NSR250!
The seller (who has offered several cool JDM bikes through Bike-urious in the past, such as this Suzuki SW-1 and this Yamaha SRV250) had two examples of the EZ-9 with scratched and faded bodywork, so he had them both painted in the Rothmans scheme you see here.
This bike has an aftermarket street legal kit (headlight, mirror, turn signals, etc) and it was imported from Japan with paperwork that makes it street legal in the US (in all states except California due to the Japanese 11 digit VIN). It’s currently plated with “clear US title and registration”, though it’s not clear what state the bike is plated in. Everything is said to work except for the turn signal relay. It just got a new battery and the carb was cleaned. If you’ve already got a Rothmans NSR250 in your garage, how can you say no to this?
