"Honda PC50A"
 
   I just picked up two 1973 Honda PC50A mopeds in really good condition. (one has 400 miles and the other has 750 miles) Anyways... I cleaned the gas tank, sprayed some carb cleaner in the carb and replaced the spark plug and they started right up. Should I have them look at by a professional before I started riding on a regular basis? Are these good bikes?

   I wasn't thinking of selling one of them but who know's, maybe i will.

How much are you willing to pay.

I am located in Texas.

Like I said before, they are running great but i don't know if I should still have someone look at them before I ride them daily.

Are they good bikes?

   350-600$. but I think you have the 20 mph ped.So it may be worth less.

You can mod the ramp plates in the transmission to make it go faster.

   Cool Thanks,

I'm not much of a mechanic, how hard is it to make that modification?

The top speed of this bike is actually 30mph. but fastet is always better....

   The PC50A is a 4 stroke automatic with a chain drive. It does not have a variator with a ramp plate like a PA50, so that mod cannot be made to the PC50A.

You would have to change the front and rear chain sprockets to increase top end speed. Don't know if you can find these sprockets but try western hills honda or Beatrice Cycle (sprocket from a Honda C70? maybe)Your Honda Product code on a PC50A is "063"

https://www.westernhillshonda.com/cgi-bin/findpart.exe?T1=&T3=&T2=063&D1=100&B1=Search

Change the oil in the crankcase and see if you can find a manual. The engine has valves and a cluctch that sooner or later will need to be a adjusted.

Go to Yahoo Groups Honda-C70 and join (it's free) In the file section they have a Manual supplemnet for a c50 that may help you.
