    Default Honda 50 Model 1975 Needs a New Heart

    Honda 50 Model 1975 Needs a New Heart - c90 1
    Trusty Old Cub Needs repair:
    I think 10 years back or so, my father bought a Honda Cub 50cc model 1975 in mint condition for Rs.33,000/-
    After 10 years of service the engine needs some work...... need new pistons, rings...... new gear set for its 3 speed gear box........total cost estimated by the mechanic is 5,000.

    Repair or replace:
    Money is not an issue, as my father uses it...... we need a tension free motor.........therefore i'm thinking of replacing the whole engine.

    Mandatory requirement:
    I have just 1 mandatory requirement, it has to be an auto-clutch or automatic transmission. Father cant handle clutch, we bought a 50 in the first place for this reason only.

    Preferences:
    Wouldn't mind a self starter.

    Things I dont care about:
    I dont care abt fuel economy........ I dont care abt replacement cost.......

    Things I care abt:
    Tension free running........ reliability....... easy maintenance.

    Decision:
    Should I rebuilt the old motor or replace it...........im more inclined towards replacing it.........what shud I replace it with...... has to be an auto clutch.

    Well thats exactly what I was thinking....a 100cc quad engine...... they have auto transmission and will fit the chassis of this cub. These engines cost like 7k or so...... I'm sure I'll end up spending this much money repairing the engine....... It will need new piston.....rings.....weight...... 4 speed gear set.....clutch plates......pressure plates....and several other items......

    The thing is I want a hassle free motor...... thats why im inclined towards a 100cc quad engine. My younger brother on the other hand wants to repair the old motor. Lets c who wins.

    one of the key reason for cub being famous was that it was cheap it still is..

    i think @YamahaYB100 has also seen it sitting there .. I saw it a year ago... dont know about current status it was just a road side mechnic at the corner of the market..
