The '''Honda PC50''', also known as the "Little Honda," was in production from 1965 to 1970 and was only imported to Canada for a single year in 1969. The PC50 replaced the Honda P50, which was imported into North America from 1966-1968.
The PC50's design was actually based on the Belgian C310, with a pedal-equipped stepless-transmission modelled closely on the [[Honda P25]]. It was sold in Japan, Europe, Canada and the United States.
The engine is an air-cooled, four-stroke, single [[OHV]], with a 49cc displacement. "The PC50 engine featured an overhead camshaft motor derived from the [[Honda P50]] motorwheel which ran from December 1966 to April 1968, being replaced by the PC50 ([[OHC]]), which continued up to April 1970 when the [[OHC]] engine gave way to the [[OHV]] (pushrod) motor in the same cycle frame, and the new model being re-designated as the [[Honda PC50K1]]."[http://www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~pattle/nacc/arc0456.htm 1]
The Honda PC50's [[four-stroke]] engine has an output rate of 1.8bhp at 5,700rpm, and an 8.5:1 compression ratio. The top speed of a PC50 is approximately 35 miles per hour, or 56 kilometers per hour.
