The iconic bike was sold for a record price, even after it emerged another motorcycle had claims to be the genuine article.
The Honda Kick ‘N’ Go scooter was a scooter produced during the mid 1970s by the Honda Motor Company in the United States.
The Kick ‘N’ Go range of scooters were sold exclusively through Honda car dealerships across the United States. They proved successful until 1976, when two children were tragically killed in an accident whilst riding them. A safety committee decided that the scooters were too powerful to be controlled by children, and they were discontinued. Several thousand existing scooters were also recalled by Honda.
All three of the models featured the same mechanism, by which the scooters were powered by kicking a pedal which in turn pulled a chain attached to the rear wheel.
How much are Honda Kick ‘N’ Go scooters worth?
Vintage Kick ‘N’ Go can be popular with specialist collectors and buyers who restore old scooters to be ridden. Working models can sell on auction sites such as eBay for between $50 and $150 depending on their colour and condition.
