"We brought a Vauxhall off Jesmond a few weeks ago. We never sighted the vehicle owing to us living in the north island. We had to rely on Jesmond's description and honesty.After we brought it, it arrived at our house in Tauranga a few days later in the condition described. Since then we have had it at several club runs and a trip to Auckland. It gets a lot of admiration wherever it goes and is very reliable and a pleasure to drive. Thank you for the gift that was in the car."Willy & Jan Whittingham, Tauranga, New Zealand
With more than 60 million sold worldwide, it is the best selling powered vehicle of all time and thus the best-selling motorcycle of all time.
This 50cc Honda is still produced today, 50 years after its inception. Out of all the brilliant bikes produced by Honda, there is little doubt that the most important of all of them is the Honda C100 Super Cub of 1958. The first one was sold in August 1958.
If there is one motorized vehicle that can be said to have brought mobility to the masses it is the Super Cub. It can be thought of as the first scooterette, a totally new type of machine that had many characteristics of a scooter but featured large 17 in wheels and stability of a motorcycle proper.
It featured an enclosed drivetrain, step through frame, and protective leg shields clearly derived from scooter designs.
The most innovative feature of the Super Cub was its plastic front fender and leg shields, the first use of plastic within the motorcycle world. Plastic proved every bit as functional as steel in these applications, but with much less weight and at a considerably lower cost. After two years of production Honda was the world's biggest manufacturer.
