ebay bike: French barn find MBX 80

I got wind of this bike a few weeks ago with the owner looking for a valuation on  a genunine barn find MBX80, then all off a sudden it pops up on ebay. View listing here

The bike appears to be very genuine with a nice low mileage, its on £828 (reserve not met) with 3 days left, my guess is about £1400? I'll add that if you were to put it on the road in the UK to remember you will just need to swap out the headlight for the MOT.

NOTE: this bike is not for sale here, please follow the link to ebay!

Re-listed as a "Buy it now" at £1650 or offer, here is the new link

Here are the owners notes:

""HERE WE HAVE MY 1984 HONDA MBX 80 UP FOR SALE.
BARN FIND, PLEASE SEE IMAGES AND CONDITION DETAILS AS THEY MAKE UP PART OF THE DESCRIPTION.
TOTALLY ORIGINAL 32 YEAR OLD TWO STROKE BIKE. 9700 KM WHICH IS ABOUT 6000 MILES FROM NEW !!! THE BIKE HAS HARDLY BEEN USED AND I BELIEVE EVEN THE TYRES ARE THE ORIGINALS FITTED FROM 1984 !
I BOUGHT THE BIKE BACK FROM FRANCE AND AS YOU CAN SEE ITS IN PERFECT CONDITION. HAVEN'T SEEN ANOTHER WITH SUCH LOW MILEAGE AND IN THIS ORIGINAL UNRESTORED CONDITION. HOWEVER IT DOES HAVE SMALL AGE RELATED MARKS AROUND THE BIKE WHICH ARE TO THE NOSE CONE, SIDE PANELS, CORROSION INSIDE THE TANK, AND LIGHT SURFACE CORROSION WHERE IT HAS BEEN SAT IN A BARN FOR MANY YEARS.
THE BIKE COMES WITH ONE KEY THAT FITS ALL LOCKS. I HAVE TAKEN PICTURES OF THE BIKE IN ITS CURRENT NON RUNNING CONDITION. I HAVE NOT CLEANED OR TOUCHED THE BIKE IN ANYWAY, THIS IS HOW IT HAS COME OUT OF THE BARN. COMPRESSION IS GOOD AND THE MOTOR IS NOT SEAZED, BUT DUE TO RUST IN THE TANK I HAVE NOT TRIED TO START IT. I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT FRESH FLUIDS, CARB CLEANED AND A NEW BATTERY AND THE BIKE WOULD FIRE WITHOUT A PROBLEM. EVEN HAS ORIGINAL EXHAUST AND I HAVE THE ORIGINAL HONDA SERVICE CARD WHICH WAS GIVEN TO THE OWNER WHEN PURCHASED WITH ALL THE INFORMATION ON. ONE PART FROM THE BIKE IS MISSING AND THAT IS THE GEARSHIFT LEVER? NOT SUE IF IT GOT TAKEN OFF OR WAS LOOSE AND HAS DROPPED OF WHILE IN THE BARN.
FRENCH REGISTERED BIKE, COMES WITH CARTE GRIS ( FRENCH V5) SO CAN BE REGISTERED IN THE UK AND BACK ON THE ROAD VERY EASILY.
ALL IN ALL A CLASSIC BIKE WHICH WILL ONLY GO UP IN VALUE.
IF YOU REQUIRE ANY FURTHER INFORMATION PLEASE ASK.
CASH ON COLLECTION ONLY WITHIN 7 DAYS OF AUCTION END OR CAN DELIVER BUT WOULD NEED TO AGREE BEFORE HAND. I NEED IMMEDIATE CONTACT AFTER AUCTION TO LET ME KNOW YOU ARE GENUINE. (SORRY IF THAT SOUNDS STRONG)
PLEASE NO TIMEWASTERS ONLY BID IF YOU ARE GENUINELY INTERESTED. NO TYRE KICKERS OR HAGGLING WHEN YOU GET HERE THE PRICE IS FINAL.
VIEWING IS RECOMMENDED AND WELCOMED TO SEE WHAT A BEAUTY THIS REALLY IS.""
