My eyes were drawn to this bike for sale with just 1900km that's just 1179 miles.... The asking price is €2250 or about £1923, top money, yes, but show me another one? Holland isn't far away either....

On a web search I found a Dutch website called Brommer Classics and they actually had a brand new old stock fuel tank in white, this I had to have....
I spoke a couple of times via email to a chap called Rob and the deal was done and the money transferred. They shipped on Friday 5th April and the tank turned up on Monday 8th, not that's service! The tank was extremely well packaged and was completely as Rob described, New, New New!
Brommer Classics have a selection of new and used spare parts for the MBX as well as a few bikes for sale, check them out here.

Sadly the company who host this site (posterous) have decided to close, so this site will be deleted immanently.
The site has now migrated to Blogger and so has the domain name www.mbx80.co.uk – as always if you have an MBX that you wish to share drop me a mail with some images and a description of the bike with any restoration tips I will get it up. You can also join in with the forum located at http://mbx80.proboards.com/index.cgi

The first bike wore the same colour schemes as the rest of the world, red, black and white. Second generation bikes had the large MBX logo on the tank with the rainbow graphics, the wheels also changed to a forged Italian made type.
The MBX75 was replaced with the NSR75, which was in effect a re-dressed MBX and shared many parts.
