WIGIG – When it’s gone it’s gone. Our team in Japan has been hunting for a decent CB50 for absolutely ages and a few months ago we found this wee treasure. It has now arrived with us and we are extremely happy to show it to you. This classic early café racer is incredibly hard to get and we can’t promise to find another like it any time soon.
Ours has only done about 5,700 miles and, apart from some damage to the left side cover and some age related marks, is in nice condition. It is totally original, unpainted and unrestored. The CB50 has that lovely stretched look of 60’s and 70’s racers with twin shocks, lipped seat and elongated tank. It’s the thing Dream 50’s are made of – but rarer.
Ours is the 1978 CB50J in an early version of the Honda tricolor colours and with the disc front brake. Roll up at your nearest bikers’ café on this little beauty and nobody will be looking at the Ducati you parked next to you. All eyes will be on this wee slip of a thing that they, or someone they knew, cut their teeth on (sometimes literally) back when petrol cost 16.77 pence per litre (yes, I checked) and litres hadn’t even been invented yet.
All jokes aside, the CB50 is an iconic bike, one on which many young people all over the world first learned to ride. There are precious few examples still around and we sincerely hope to find a good home where this one can be enjoyed and kept for future generations to appreciate.
We would be delighted to show you this bike in person and we can send a video if distance is an issue. Please get in contact to book an appointment or for further information.
This bike has been through the NOVA system. We can arrange registration and delivery. Registration is a 3-step process: obtain a dating certificate from a DVLA accredited dating officer; MOT; registration with DVLA. This costs £150.
