2003 Honda SL230 & Super Cub 50: $2,600 & $950

Post by AE86 » Sun Oct 26, 2014 12:49 am

Hi all,

***I am in the U.S. at the moment, but my wife has stayed behind in Cambodia to take care of things with the family, so if you need to see anything beforehand, she's local and speaks English well enough. You can PM me through K440 and I'll try to check up on it if I can remember... :|

***I also consolidated two posts because some corrections were needed, and it was also confusing because I sold one bike on each separate post. Anyway, I figured it better to start a new fresh thread.


Firstly, the Cub 50. Two changes from the original ad (below). One, I hit a pothole and dented the front rim. The bike actually rides straight and the wheel doesn't wobble at any speed, but it's dinged. I dropped the price $100 even though a Japanese rim is only 18 or 19 dollars labor included.

Two, the bike has another 300 km ish on it (now at 7,000 something on the odometer). I took it to Neak Leoung on a long ride and back and it performed flawlessly, even made it up to 70 kph which is really good for a 50cc :)

Other than that, everything else is the same.

Honda Super Cub 50 (square lamp)

1999, 4 speed, **electric start**
6/10 condition, no mechanical or electrical problems.
Never registered in Cambodia, I am the first owner.
Ready to ride.

Currently asking $950.

Headlight switch wired so you have both low and high beam options, compared to the Khmer "cut and bodge" way.

Image

Pipe is a little ugly and scratched up.
Image
Image

Image

Original swingarm plate (no overspray paint marks, paint original).
Image

Same story here on the chain guard
Image

It's cracked but I can get you a new one.
Image

I believe the petrol tank has been repainted in it's life but I am not sure.
Image

I also believe the covers were resprayed, but again, not sure.
Image

Luggage rack a little faded and tarnished.
Image

Lots of fun actually, 10,500 rpm redline and with a short geared 4 speed it has more pep than people expect.
Image


Never registered in Cambodia yet, all papers in order for new owner (tax form).
-Reworked/jetted carburetor plus new fuel lines and fuel filter
-Replaced fuel sending unit (gauge)
-All electrics have been gone through and repaired (Khmer bodges mostly)
-New drive chain
-New battery
-Few other misc bits are new

**Everything even from the helmet lock to the speedometer cable has been gone through to ensure EVERYTHING works properly.

**Bike includes brand new in box Japanese timing chain, spare drive chain (higher geared), Japanese clutch plate set, and spare set of Thailand made brake shoes.

**Bike also includes a C70 cylinder and piston plus Japanese made timing chain (not installed) if you choose to upgrade.

EDIT: Comes with white legshield, was removed for engine pictures.

Ready to ride and enjoy.

Was asking $1,050, now $950.

My last two bikes for sale (that I picked up this month for fun) :mrgreen: In case anyone is wondering, I bought 5 bikes since I returned on vacation. I know, I'm an idiot.

**Pics to come after I get the bikes to my house on Sunday**

Bike looks like this (color wise) but the rear rack is black. I apologize, I managed to somehow forget to take a picture of the actual bike...

Image

Basic info

2003**, Honda SL230
Original import from Japan, I am the first owner in Cambodia.
5.5/10 condition (in my opinion) although the importer said "99%"... :roll: A 99% bike to me is something with 100 km on it, not something that's 10 years old with 40,000, no matter how good it looks...anyway.
Some scratches and small dings, but paint is shiny and it's completely solid mechanically.
All taxes (minus $1 road tax sticker) are paid
29,000 miles/47,000 km (mostly the actual mileage, odometer reading is straight)
223cc single cylinder 2 valve motor
20 horsepower (Honda Dream 125s have 9 horsepower and weigh 10 kg more in comparison)
6 speed manual
Hydraulic front and rear disc brakes
106 kg dry weight
30 inch seat height (lowest I've seen for a dirt bike)
No mechanical or electrical problems (all repaired/fixed after I bought it).


**I am not entirely sure it's an 03' I've tried to decode the VIN but wasn't able to. The stickers on it seem to indicate an 03'-04' though, so I'm going on a limb here.**


The story

Bought off an importer for $2,400 after haggling down $120. Spent another few hundred on replacement parts/reconditioning it, and also am tossing in a bundle of leftover new parts (maybe $50-100 worth?) I have from when I had my three previous SLs.

Replaced/repaired the following:
New clutch (genuine Honda OEM set)
Replaced the headlight circuitry with a switch/harness from another SL. Someone chopped up the previous harness to prevent the low beam from coming on (to avoid the cops).
Replaced the drive chain/sprockets
Replaced the battery
New stator cover gasket
New fuel filter and fuel line
All electrical contacts gone through, inspected, cleaned, rewrapped/shielded and tucked away.
I did a few other things to it like new light bulbs and oil change etc, but can't remember all.

Comes with the following spare parts for backups:
-Spare front and rear brake pads (Thailand versions, moderate quality)
-Spare clutch plate set (aftermarket Thailand)
-Spare front and rear sprocket (aftermarket Thailand)
-Spare headlamp bulb
-Spare clutch cable (used original)
-Small set of extra spanners and tools
**few other things I'm probably forgetting

Rode it for two days and parked it. I haven't even gone through the original 3 liters of fuel I put in it since I bought it. Just lost interest in it.

Here's pics added for when the clutch was replaced

Image
Image

This is how the cover looked BEFORE I cleaned it. The whole motor was incredibly clean inside, I was quite please when I pulled the covers.
Image

Of course new gasket
Image

Was feeling like putting new bolts too
Image

Image

Image

You can call me an idiot (which is true) but I completely forgot to snap pics of the bike itself before I left Cambodia. Feel free to ask via PM though and I'll ask my wife to take some, might have her do that anyway.

Okay, any questions as always, ask away.

Thanks,
AE86/AK87 (Akira S.)

My wife just calls it stupidity. :)

Sorry for lack of pics, I've been admittedly lazy and didn't go to get the bike yet.

I updated the original post.

The 90 sold, and so I consolidated the 50 ad that I had into this one and made one ad. These two bikes are what I have left.

**In the U.S. at the moment, but my wife is behind at our place available to show you the bikes. She speaks English well enough, and if you have questions in the meantime, shoot them my way.

Thanks,
Akira

Hi,
I am tired of driving bicycle and am looking for a cheap but reliable motorbike to drive around the city.
Noted that you are asking $950 for your Year 1999 super cub. How much can you lower your price?

Sorry francis138, I ended up selling the Cub for $925. Funny enough, when I came back to Cambodia for a quick stint, I bought another one. Not for sale though.

You can find just imported 50s for around $750-$1,100 depending on the year/condition. I paid $800 for the C50 I just bought but it is in so-so nick.
