A tiny bike with a lot of character.
In as much as modern-day high performance machines with fire-breathing engines with sky high revolutions are extremely fun and exhilarating, the fact remains that small bikes offer a different kind of unadulterated fun. Basically consisting of two wheels, and engine and brakes (if you're lucky), small bikes are tons of fun partly because you can max out their performance without putting life, limb, and the law in danger.
A perfect testament to this would be this 2004 Honda CB50R Dream. Built as a replica of the classic 1962 Honda RC110 racer, the CB50R Dream has extremely friendly underpinnings. For starters, a massively tiny 49cc DOHC single cylinder engine provides power to the back wheel. Equipped with a racing piston and uprated valves, the CB50R dream is a peppy little machine breathing out a whopping seven horsepower. Equipped with a six-speed transmission, the CB50R boasts a higher top speed than many other 50cc bikes of its time (not that there were many of them to begin with).
Acquired by the seller from the original owner in 2008, this CB50R Dream is one of only 440 examples ever produced. In all original condition, this bike sports unmistakable racer aesthetics from machines of the 1960s. The bike features a set of raised clip-on handlebars mounted below the top triple clamp. Similar to its racing counterpart, the bike does not have a starter. The engine must be bumped to life, which shouldn't be a problem given how tiny this thing is. It features a tachometer with a sky high 18,000 rpm limit.
As far as condition is concerned, this particular example is in pristine condition, having been kept on display for the better part of 12 years. Finished in silver, and featuring racey aesthetics and ergonomics, this bike is a perfect addition to the discerning motorsports enthusiast's collection. The current bid stands at $5,500, so if this 2004 Honda CB50R Dream is of interest to you, be sure to visit the original listing and place a bid!
