Honda Motocompo NCZ50 - The build log!

Hello guys,

Thought I would formally introduce myself from way over the other side of the world in Australia. I’ve actually been pouring through this wonderful site for some weeks as there is a whole host of really useful information on NC50/NU50/PA50’s which is somewhat applicable to my bike below.

I imported this myself from Japan, about a year ago now. For some it will be instantly recognisable, but for those not in the know it’s a Honda Motocompo (NCZ50). Specs are a single speed, air cooled 49cc 2 stroke rocket ship! This is of course a fold up ‘trunk bike’, which was designed to fit in the back of a Honda City.

My contact is Japan was able to contact Honda Japan and determine it rolled off the production line on March 10 1982. It was received in quite nice condition. A few bumps and bruises from her 35 years, but nothing too terrible by any means. A nice straight un-rusted frame. And for better or worse (probably better actually), it had sat forever so every jet in the carb was fossilised, but after a good clean she ran first time.

I will attempt to make this thread into a rolling record of updates, as like most, I would love a little more speed. To that end, I tested her in unmodified form and managed a top speed of 38km/h on the GPS, or close on 24mph for you non-metric folk. Not bad for running on an 8” tyre I reckon!

Test Run - 38kmh

It was at this stage I decided it wasn’t perhaps the most sensible idea to run this unregistered, so went through the process of applying for road legality, which it now is.

For the next post, - the Expansion Chamber!
