While there is no shortage of impactful models throughout the history of motorcycling, few (if any) changed the industry quite like the C100. Honestly, one can’t overstate how revolutionary the little bike was when it came to two-wheeled transport.

When Honda first entered the American motorcycle market back in 1959, the entire segment was grossing just 50,000 units a year. By December of 1962, however, Honda had become a dominant force in the industry, selling in excess of 40,000 units a year… by themselves. Put another way — the C100 opened the door to motorcycling for many Americans, and that was even before Honda had released its famous “You meet the nicest people on a Honda” marketing campaign in 1963!

Performance-wise, the C100 was — admittedly — a bit pedestrian. Power came from a 49cc four-stroke single good for 4.5 horses and 2.4lb-ft of torque, and shifting was handled by a semi-automatic three-speed clutch. Though top speed maxed out at 43mph, Honda claimed that Cub owners could expect as much as 200mpg!

And besides, the production numbers speak for themselves. With 100 million units and counting, the Cub ranks as the most successful motorcycle of all time, as well as the most highest selling motor vehicle of all time.

This example is VIN: C100N062276, engine #:  C100E321820. The seller acquired the bike in 2008 and spent two years giving it a mechanical restoration.

The seller reports that he has covered 861 miles since the restoration. However, true mileage is unknown.

Maintenance:
The seller notes that he has rebuilt the front suspension and shocks. Additionally, he has tuned the engine and installed a new gauge cluster, exhaust, and tires. He states that “the case was not opened” and that “the video shows the bike running after a push-start. Mechanically, the kickstart lever has broken off, and the automatic transmission (clutches) seem to require renewal, as it is low on power.”

Modifications:
Per the seller, this C100 is stock.

Inside of the tank:

It is riding on Michelin Gazelle tires with date codes of 4406 and 0308.

The sale includes an original owner’s manual and a copy of the shop manual.

Cosmetic Blemishes: please see the album up top for all known cosmetic blemishes. Here is a selection:
“Cosmetically, it has not been modified – original paint, fairing, wheels, and shows well for its age.”
