This little beauty was unknown to me until I saw it at Bonneville. The PC50 first debuted in 1967, according to our friendly neighborhood expert at American Honda, Jon Seidel, and this version is from 1969-70. It uses a step-through pressed-steel frame design like Honda’s popular Super Cub line, suspended by a leading-link fork and a swingarm rear end with dual shocks. This one has the optional leg shields. It has pedals for when the 49cc engine, rated at 1.8 hp, isn’t enough.

Our friend Seidel says only about 5,000 PC50 were sold in America.


    The Spirit bike from Indian is beautiful. The old Honda reminds me of a bike my neighbor had. A lot of interesting machines.

    My votes are for that tractor thing because it has a cartoonish moose hood ornament, and also for the dual engine scout because it’s beautiful and street legal. Flat heads V-twins have a cool blaaaty sound so two must be even better.

    Hey Bob (Lewis) that is one great looking motorcycle. And you ,if anything, you look even better. If i see you around . Drinks are on me if you tell me about how you stayed faithful all those years

  • Great roundup!

  • You missed Steve “Brew Dude” Garn and his record setting 1972 350 RD. Great little bike and he set 3 AMA records this year. Not too bad for 60 year guy from North Carolina! This was great round up of shots from my favorite place.

    A god among men.

    Great to see so many Indians, that twin scout sure is something.
