The bike is powered by a 499cc OHV single paired with a 4-speed transmission and has been updated with an electronic ignition and a new 21″ front wheel. An oil change was carried out two months ago. This B50T is sold with a North Carolina title in the seller’s name.

Developed as the successor to the 441 Victor, the B50T was the dual sport variant of the B50 and featured an aluminum fuel tank, motocross-style handlebars, knobby tires, and a high pipe. This example features black trim on its polished tank and side covers as well as chrome fenders. The seller notes a ding in the rear fender, and other blemishes are shown up close in the gallery below.

The front wheel has been replaced with a new 21″ wheel, reportedly due to the difficulty of sourcing stock-size 20″ tires. Both chrome wire-spoke wheels are fitted with Kenda dual sport tires.
