1958 HONDA 50

I have a chance to buy a honda cub with factory blinkers the taillight is original and very small and the front blinkers are amber colored. any idea on the year it could be????

Re: 1958 HONDA 50

post pictures, serial number,etc correct me if I'm wrong, but 1960, 1961 is when they came out with the setup, and now 90 million later,still in production,

Re: 1958 HONDA 50

Anything pre-1960 is rare. Anything pre-1959 is EXTREMELY rare, perhaps even a non-import. Please get a photo.

Re: 1958 HONDA 50

dude, thats the FIRST year they made them. something tells me it's not a 58, i dont think they were even importing yet...

i don't think that's a 1958 model,afaik the '58 had a pale coloured front mudguard but i suppose it could have been changed.

just spotted it doesn't have a front brake torque arm so definitely not 1958.

Re: 1958 HONDA 50

the picture is a mirror image there was a torgue arm on the other side on the front wheel i think.....

Re: 1958 HONDA 50

mine has the same identical blinkers and taillight what other years used those style lights ????and mine was bought in canada new originally if that makes a difference

You can tell the first year by the pale colour front mudguard. The front brake torque arm disappeared soon after, and the tiny rear lamp in '62.

Re: 1958 HONDA 50

I would venture to guess that Jim and Steve are correct, that this is a 1958. A rich kid friend of mine had one when I was kid and this looks identical. His WAS a 1958. We broke one of the rear directional covers and when his father went to the Honda shop they could only replace it with the directionals that protruded on a short post or tube. The original directionals were oval like, but the new replacements were round.

My bet is it's a 1958!

Wanna sell it? It was the year I was born!!!

Re: 1958 HONDA 50

im going to pick it up this weekend and ill put up some good pics when i get it home. im thinking of selling. it runs like a top and started on the first kick with no smoke the only parts missing seem to be the two side covers and the rubber on the kick start. the speedo reads 234.8 miles

Re: 1958 HONDA 50

i just bought this moped for 200 dollars and it runs perfect only im not sure of the year the serial number is C100 P004240

ANY CLUE OF THE YEAR ????

Is the serial number stamped into the frame or on a brass tag that is riveted to the frame?

Very nice! Cool little bugger, great shape!

Re: 1958 HONDA 50

If the serial number is stamped on the frame, I think you have a very early 60's C100. 1960- 1962, there are no good sources for year identification using serial numbers. Maybe the title or old paperwork will have a year on it.
