The Honda 50 Motorcycle

Honda 50 Motorcycle
According to wired.com the Honda 50 or Honda Cub is “the best-selling vehicle in the history of internal combustion, and there are now more than 60 million of them on the road”.

The Honda 50, its variants and competitors from Suzuki, Yamaha and Kawasaki are everywhere in Thailand. The Honda 50 was a major factor in giving rural people mobility and freedom. Even the very poor have one available and they go on for ever.

I like this old Honda 50 with the single seat. I saw it outside Chatuchak Market in Bangkok. I wish the owner didn’t cover it with stickers, but apart from that it looks great. Every time I see an old Honda 50 or similar bike I take a picture.
