The Appeal


The P50 is certainly one of the quirkier classic mopeds, partly in thanks to how it houses the majority of the driveline components within the rear wheel hub. 

What also helps set the P50 apart is Honda’s desire to pursue 4-stroke as opposed to 2-stroke, as was more commonly preferred by its rivals. 

Due to the sheer age of these vehicles, there aren't many P50s available on today's market, let alone near-pristine examples such as this one. This moped has been extensively restored in the past and has since been treasured as part of a collection. 

If you’re looking for a superb historical showpiece, or a quirky bike to pop to the shops on, this P50 won’t disappoint.

The History and Paperwork


  • 9 Former keepers
  • Previously restored
  • Well maintained and cared for
  • V5C document present

Rather remarkable for the age of the vehicle, this P50 has just 9 former keepers noted on the V5. 

As these mopeds don’t actually feature an odometer, it is hard to estimate just how many miles have been covered over the years, but the number is rather moot anyway, given the restoration. 

As the photos reflect, the restoration has clearly been carried out to the highest level, leaving nothing to be further desired. 

Throughout its time with the current keeper, the vehicle has barely been used, instead being stored as part of a historic collection. That being said, the bike has certainly been cared for and kept in tip-top shape.

Should the new keeper wish to maintain the vehicle themselves, a previous owner has carefully collated plenty of useful information in the included notebook. Details such as part numbers, advice for certain tasks, and diagrams provide all the information you would need to maintain such a moped.

Also included are the V5C document, and a workshop manual.

The Exterior


  • Restored exterior
  • Stunning finish
  • Classic 60’s styling
  • Originally grey/cream

As this P50 benefits from a thorough restoration, courtesy of a previous owner, the exterior condition is absolutely fantastic. 

Having covered very few miles since being restored, this Honda’s exterior is near-perfect, and can hardly be faulted. All trim pieces and detailing follow suit, showing hardly any signs of use. 

Although this bike is fully functional, there is no doubt that it would make a superb showpiece in a historical collection, due to its near-concourse finish. 

The Mechanics


  • 49cc 4-stroke
  • Performs as intended
  • Well maintained example

By modern standards, the P50 is hardly a good candidate for the daily commute, but will gladly tootle along at low speeds, making it the perfect means of transportation for local journeys. 

Although hardly a complex bit of kit, buyers will be pleased to know that this P50 performs exactly as intended, without a single known fault. Throughout the current keeper’s time with the vehicle, the tiny carb has received some love in the form of an adjustment and now performs brilliantly.

Summary


This little Honda presents a superb opportunity to own a rare, restored example of the iconic 60’s moped. 

With a freshly resprayed exterior, plenty of new components, and a history of caring owners, there is very little you could further ask of this stunning P50.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.

Anti-sniping

C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are Commission bids?

A commission bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
