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.
