Honda Cub 50

The Honda Super Cub debuted in 1958, ten years after the establishment of Honda Motor Co. Ltd. The original 1952 Honda Cub F had been a clip-on bicycle engine. In 1966 the C50 appeared and remained in production through the mid 80s, becoming one of the most widespread and familiar versions of the Super Cub. When it was imported to the US, the name was changed to Honda 50, and later Honda Passport C70, and C90, because the Piper Super Cub airplane trademark had precedence. Similarly, in Britain they were only badged 'Honda 50', 'Honda 90' etc. as the Triumph Tiger Cub preceded.

Honda Cub 90

Similarly the CM90 was replaced in 1966 with the 89.5 cc, 5.6 kW OHC CM91, which a year later on 1967, got restyled forks and headlamp like the C50, to become the familiar C90. Though the basic design of Cub remained unchanged, new styling and improvements included enclosed front forks. The C90 Super Cub was to go on being produced, almost unchanged for 34 years, finally bowing out in 2002.

1980's Honda Cub C90

Honda Cub C90’s build is simple – a handful of tools will cover most maintenance tasks, though the robust nature means little repair is needed. The engine should need little more than faithful oil changes and valve clearance checks.
Modern scooters are much better – fact. But then so they should be, seeing as the Cub can trace its heritage back to 1958, it’s hardly surprising. Today’s scooters have underseat storage, bigger tanks, smooth CVT transmissions and more assured brakes and handling. But then they completely lack charm
