Anybody ever ride a Honda NS 50?
One popped up on Craigslist. I'm intrigued, but $2200 is too pricey for my tastes.

I'd buy that in a heartbeat if I had the money. That thing looks dope!

borderline bike like this begs the question regarding a license and a bigger bike. $2200 is about 3x more than one should pay for something like this. I don't care how rare it is.

they're rare, especially if it's a street legal one vs the race bike.


cheapest i've found a running remotely not trashed one was 1100

Not that rare, I know of 4 of them personally here in San Francisco. They are all beat and slow as dirt though.

I have a NS50 and it is great,though I will say I would not pay $2,200 for one. One remark was that they ARE slow, remember they are a 200 pound 50cc bike, I have know complaints with the way mine performs.

I'm planning on selling my ruck for one of these street legal NS50F's... then it's off to a 80cc OEM swap w/ an aftermarket big bore kit, airtech full race farings, NSR50R rims, street tires, disk brakes and an upgraded front/rear suspension... durring our track day in stockton we got to see a few of these bikes tear it up with incredible speeds lapping our 50cc rux like we wern't even there... i do wanna see a NSR50 go up against some of these darksided rux...

not quite, the bike would have costed a lot of money, time and effort to get back to running status and that doesn't even include the cost to upgrade the bike... so, as for now, it's a waiting game to find something a little more suitable... also, I'm thinking of just going bigger...
