Registering Moto - New Rule

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

20+ Honda Cubs are worth quite a bit of money, not so much here but in the West.
$1500 upwards for a round headlight pre 80’s model.
Last I checked the pre 80's Cubs weren't more than $500-600 a few months ago.

So anyway. $10 fine and now you’ve lost the bike. Good move batman.
Shit happens. Went out for a burger with $5 in my pocket, came home on foot. Live and learn.
There’s hardly any here but back home they reach a premium.

Have you ever seen a pre 1981 round headlight Cub for sale in Cambodia?
Very rare and there’s no market!

I almost bought one to replace my lost scooter. It was $550 and a 70cc.

And I misread your post, I thought you meant Cubs were fetching a premium like $1500 here, not in the West.

Not true in rural Cambodia. Farmers love them as cheap workhorses.

I just contacted the people sited in the original post CNM motors and was told it is ok to drive the moto with the original owners card.

I think it's a politically incorrect term for he/she, but more hethanshe. We don't use those terms in polite society though. We just say "it's complicated."
