Hello everyone,
Here is my latest addition to my collection: a HONDA QR 50 from 1991.
I bought it for 500 €. It is in very good condition and almost complete.
The goal is to restore it with OEM parts as it left the Honda factory.
Once completed, it will take place in my living room decoration. I've tried it before and it's pretty cool.

I have a question: this motorcycle was not sold in the USA?
We never see this QR 50 on vital Mx.

Pretty sure it was only for a couple of years, my friend has one, I think it’s an 88, rare find here really. It’s locked up in his garage to rot in peace as he is a hoarder, he also has a cherry 93 cr250 that’s just collecting dust, and a 04 cr125 that he’s got in boxes with about 7g worth of parts for it.... needless to say, none of them will ever see the light of day again.....

I finally found the second exhaust guard I was missing.
I sanded both guards and applied high temperature exhaust paint.

Cool little bike. So strange Honda wouldn't want to bring this in the US to compete with the Yamaha PW50. Thing a little red mixed in with the blue would look good at LLs
