"Hi Gloria & Jesmond, I would just like to say a big thank you for the recent purchase of our classic car. Granted this vehicle was probably one of the lower priced vehicles in your extensive and stunning range of vehicles, you treated us just as well as I imagine as you treat anyone in your dealings. The way you conduct business and treat your clients & vehicles makes it a very memorable and wonderful experience. The passion you have for classic and “pure” vehicles is amazing - alongside your knowledge! We can see why you have long-standing clients and hope to continue to purchase from you ourselves in the future. Thank you both and thanks for finding us such a lovely car that makes us smile, it is a pleasure to drive"Neil & Maria Clarkson, Christchurch, New Zealand
The Honda SS50 is a 50 cc motorcycle manufactured by the Honda Motor Company.
I would have been in primary school when the first four speed SS50’s arrived on the scene. Honda had updated its SS50E originally from 1967 to gain some traction in ‘sixteener’ moped revolution that swept the nation in the early 70’s.
It became the reluctant choice of parents who realised they weren’t going to win the moped v cycling/bus/lift or walk argument but also considered keeping their neighbours as friends a priority.
Yes, the two-stroke brigade were considered far too noisy and rapid; thus, if the parents finally relented, it was only after accepting the promises the SS offered that is reliability with less performance plus reduced decibels when their young off-spring arrived home at midnight.
Sure, I had a Raleigh Chopper but talk of mopeds was banned in our house and so was staying out after midnight. It would be another two decades before motorised freedom visited my abode; maybe that is why five decades later the chance to own an early SS50 has become important. A couple of hundred quid wasn’t small change in 1970s either, the average wage was bugger all, but Honda priced the SS just under the other (more popular) peds of the time.
Things have changed now - our generation are all grown up, but finding an SS50 in the first place would test anyone's patience; those that remain are either restored and rather pricey … or rotten and will one day be restored and become even more pricey.
