There was a stand with some of the nicest 2 strokes on it all mint and all for sale it was some shop . they where asking fortune for them but the price may have been over the top but bloody hell they were as mint as you could get and I bet they sold one or 2 .
Did anyone see the Walter Wolf RG 500 that was outside, the bloke wanted £14000 for it, the fairing was cracked as well. I did like the NSR 250 and the other bikes on that stand, but would have bought the SP2 I think which was reasonably priced. Rob

Fastline Superbike from Preston, they wanted top price, but quality ain't cheap. That NSR ain't no ordinary NSR its the SP model.

I had an mb 80. True, it was no RD beater, but a lovely bike. I rarely see them now. Certainly in 80cc anyhow. Love the photos. Some dream bikes for my aircraft hanger sized garage when my lottery numbers come up
HERE FOR THE LONG HAUL, ENJOYING THE WORK AND DOING IT MYSELF.
Red MBX 50 brings back memories my first geared motor bike wish I still had it would love another :-)
I thought that was a rarity in the UK and was an import from foreign climes, didnt think the 50 was an official UK bike?...only the 80s(MBX and MTx)
Mid 1980s I was living in Northern Ireland and the MBX50 (and 80) was pretty common there. Insurance was hideously expensive compared to the mainland hence although legally you could still have a 250 as a learner, a lot of people chose 80s and 100s.
It was MTX 50s around our town as there was several areas of woodland not far away to trash them in. Duke of Bedford wasn't impressed. these Hondas are well liked over here in Belgium and Holland as most people will know. Plenty of parts about and still see the odd person riding them in original condition along the cycle paths. Often feel like pulling them over. Especially the middle age guy on the mint looking AP50 yesterday! I have 2 MTX50s in my collection. Looks like I should have made an effort for the MBX80 I saw advertised last month, absolute gem. He has more but they are the ugly full fairing and late 80s colours.
