Description

c.1962 Honda 49cc C110 Sports Cub
Frame no. C110D275613
Engine no. C110E-51098

Introduced in 1958, Honda's classic C100 Cub 'step-thru' gave millions of people the world over their first taste of two-wheeled mobility. Better-built, more powerful and more reliable than the majority of contemporary mopeds, while endowed with handling superior to that of the small-wheeled scooter, the C100 set new sales records for motorcycle production. The first sports derivative, the C110 Sports Cub, appeared in 1960. This was a proper small motorcycle, with spine frame and a more powerful version of the C100 motor having a higher compression ratio and an alloy cylinder head. The model remained in production until 1966. Last taxed to September 2001 and currently displaying a total of 10,155 miles on the odometer, this apparently complete example would benefit from detailing and re-commissioning. There are no documents with this Lot, which is sold strictly as viewed.
