1986 Honda Aero/NB 50

Post by TheHondaMan » Wed Sep 06, 2017 9:01 pm

So I got an 86 Aero 50 from my cousin, and am currently Restoring it. It's in almost perfect condition with only 302miles on it. I am pretty much just cleaning and repainting some dirty/rusty parts. All the parts to the scooter are there except...for the rear tail light cover. And I can't find it ANYWHERE. Which is horrible because the bike is 99.9% complete it just needs that cover! It's out of stock on every site I've found it on and no one is selling it in places like eBay, Craig's list etc..If anyone has one that I can buy or knows where I can possibly find one, it would be greatly appreciated!!!! All I need is the light cover. On most sites with a diagram of the rear combination light assembly it is #6. It's literally just the upside down T shaped cover for the center light on the back of the bike.

1987 white n blue Aero NB50 are rare, but you can find 5 of them easier than 1 piece taillight lens.

I can't believe it, and yea I've now realized that I'm not the only one in this position. I've seen many pictures and videos online with that cover missing on the scooter. Maybe I can get it 3D printed or something?? I need to find something to cover that area or else to me it won't be 100% restored

I got it from my cousin, so he must have had it sitting outside for a long time. The rest of the plastics are all showing signs of wear from the sun also. But they're not damaged so, I'm working on restoring them as much as I can. Well actually restoring the entire bike as much as I can

Just fab one up from aluminum and paint it Krinkle black, don't tell anyone and most people wont know. Then you can take your time and search.
I have made several panels for Gyro's and even rear bumpers, nobody knows unless you tell them.
Ever try to find a Gyro rear plastic bumper ? Easier to find a unicorn.

Late to the game in the thread but buy one of these:

Vision was the Aero across the pond and had a one piece instead of three. Used one on my 85 Aero and it was a pretty good fit. Completes the look of the bike imo.

Thanks man! I saw that before on Ebay but didn't think it would fit, so I held off on it. But I guess I'll just have to give it a shot and see what it looks like. I actually finished the rebuild of it and took it for its first ride....but about 10min into the ride it started losing power and now it won't start lmao. So when the weather gets warm again I have to take apart the engine again lol, when that time comes I'll pick up the piece you linked me.

Heres a pic on my old scoot:

I had to dremel a little bit to make it fit comfortably but waaaay better than hunting down an intact original imo. Hope you get it running good. Once I cleaned mine about 10 times it was the most dependable vehicle I ever had. Damn now I miss her :cry:

Shoot, I was going to ask if anyone knew of 1984 Honda Gyro body parts anywhere. Or, a "parking brake" lever. I just got two Gyros and one rear flap/bumper is missing and one has a broken parking brake handle. I like your idea on making one and painting it black.

That actually looks really good though! Im definitely going to buy one of those, still keeping an eye out for an origional piece though ;) And I thought about selling mine too since its in such good condition, but I know I'd miss it as well so I just cant do it. Going to just fix it up amd keep it prestine for years to come.

Heres what it looks like now.

What a beauty. Thanks for sharing. Do you mind if I use one or two of your photos on the main Aero 50 page?
