Were they 2 or 4-stroke? It looks like a 2-stroke but I know Honda preferred all of their models to be 4-stroke back then 23

Even my Puch Maxi in the early 70's had more power than that, well I think it did as it got to 22mph on the flat.:lol:

there is a fault with it , bike was last running 7 yrs ago , he had it in storage and rode it to new house , stored back in living room

the free wheel , or pedals to start it are not , looks like a ratchet pawl is stuck , looking at grease in steering stem , like treacle , so suspect its affecting the pawl thing

Going full circle eh Alan.:thumbup:

Funny how we all started out on stuff like that, couldn't wait to get a big 'proper' bike and then often end up going back to a few hp, or less, in our dotage.:lol: Remember trying get a Puch Maxi past 30mph and failing miserably.:lol:

When I was 14 I fitted a Puch Maxi engine to a go-kart & the thing would hardly even move from stationary until I removed the silencer baffles (consisted of a rod that ran the full length of the silencer with a load of perforated discs along it) ...it was one of the very rare occasions where removing an exhaust baffle actually improved engine performance :lol: But by Christ was it loud 2507

Luxury. Our Puch had a broken throttle so we tied the cable to the handlebars and pulled on it to go faster. Fine till you came to a bend and the throttle cable went tight from turning the handlebars.

You could take the seat off and have a more secure fixing point for bumpy roads and such like.

as cool goes , this honda is cool £27 per yr to add to insurance free tax free mot and almost 200 to the gallon yes we know top speed is 30mph

I have been looking at electric bikes , , anything that can go to near 30mph is classed as a motorbike for insurance purposes , I looked at that supersoco http://supersoco.co.uk/ts/ ,mmm £3k (almost) and very few insurance Cos will touch them , a quote I got was almost £300 , PS: t595 is about £120


wicker basket to go on front has been ordered , perfect for beer runs then


as a side note James may sold his p50 2 yrs ago, his name wasnt even on v5 ,, £1495 https://www.bonhams.com/auctions/22727/l... and there is a USA imported one on ebay , not UK reg , 3 bits missing , bits you cannot buy , carb cover , rear lens and battery cover (US spec) , thats £1200 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Honda-P50-P-5...

Yes great. But you already have no friends so it doesn't matter that anybody riding one of them, all their friends will stop speaking to them,,, just look how the other top gear that's don't like speaking to James may and how they call him names.:smile:
