When Honda introduced the P50 in June of 1966, it was the first Japanese moped to make its way to American shores. Coincidentally, it was also the last hub-motor design the Big Red put into production.

It featured a step-through frame to make it an approachable ride, with leading-link front suspension and a fuel tank hidden above the rear fender. Due to its bicycle-like form factor, all of the drivetrain components were contained within the rear hub.

In characteristically Honda fashion, power came from a four-stroke, 49cc single cylinder engine. Unlike the two-strokes typically used in such applications, this made ownership much easier — no need to mix oil come time to fill up.

This example is VIN: P50A173015. The seller acquired it from a collector one year ago.

There is no odometer, true mileage is unknown.

The seller reports that he has replaced the spark plugs and performed an oil change.

He notes that the “horn works intermittently, the light switch is loose, and sometimes fuel will leak from the float bowl if the petcock is not closed.”

The seller reports that this P50 is completely stock.

Inside of the tank:

It is riding on tires that have aged out.
