The Honda ST-Series minibikes are known as the Dax in Japan and Europe, and the Trail 70 in Canada and the US. The ST50, ST70, and CT70 were introduced in August 1969 and produced through 1981. A key feature of the ST-Series is the pressed-steel ‘T-bone’ frame that distinguishes it from Honda's other minibikes. As a general description, the ST-Series bikes have a bench-style saddle, small fat tyres, and folding handlebars. They have an air-cooled four-stroke engine with either a three-speed semi-automatic transmission, with an automatic centrifugal clutch, or a four-speed manual gearbox. Due to the diminutive wheel-size and limited speed, the ST-Series bikes do not always qualify as road-legal vehicles and were sold in some markets for off-road recreation only. Their licensing status varies with locale and time period during their nearly 40 years of existence.

Presented in its original paintwork, this ST50 boasts an uprated exhaust and despite being small,  it packs a punch from the four-stroke air-cooled engine. This example is road legal and is offered with V5 registration certificate.
