VERY ORIGINAL HONDA C50 WITH JUST 5,700 MILES & ONLY 2 OWNERS - (1ST LADY OWNER FROM 1967 - 2015)
LINK TO LOTS OF LARGE PHOTOS & VIDEO RUNNING/WALK AROUND:
Lovely little gem of a bike in very original condition that needs a light restoration mainly paint & seat (no rust). Runs spot on.
2nd owner touched up paintwork poorly however did sort carb, tyres, and running - but alas only did a few hundred miles and now is too ill to ride (and sadly won't ride again). Original seat is poor BUT original exhaust is great as are fairings.
Obviously MOT & TAX exempt now, is ready to ride or perfect base for restoration if wanted.
I have V5, 2 keys, and clear HPI report showing MOT's from 2015, 2016 & 2017 confirming mileage & that's all. The last owners son informed me she bought it new from "Bob Minion" of Derby going since 1925 (who apparently even remember the lady who bought it!) and then she put it away in 1973 and never rode it until selling to the last owner who lived in Nottingham so in 53 years the bike never went far!
I have taken lots of high res photos which I can send a link to PLUS a video of the bike starting up & walk around. The quality of images on CarandClassic aren't really very good so paint looks better than it is in the flesh.
Now with the current Corona situation I am happy to deal with people on the gov recommended way with social distancing, payment via bank transfer & V5 online so neither of us are exposed to anything.
Any questions please ask.

FOR SALE £5,995 (NOW SOLD) Triumph Street Twin Café Racer that has had a superb "Blacked Out" job
2nd time of owning this as I had to have it back again. My personal favourite bike that has been done beautifully. So many tasteful extras, low mileage & pristine example - the TEC mufflers are to die for & I rode it last summer & again today - just the BEST example & so docile to ride. I also love the HEIDENAU knobblies they handle a treat!
FOR SALE £4,995 1986 Honda XLV750R having had 2 year restoration by Honda Specialist in Italy
Walk around & quick start up of this beautiful old XLV (now 35 years!!!) having been restored in Italy from the ground up including work done to the engine I believe & then imported to UK in 2019 & done 700 miles since. Cracking bike that was a bit of an Enigma in its day but the pre-cursor to the now fabled Africa Twin & Transalp. Lovely looking livery & a great piece of historic nostalgia.
