Brochure: 1984 Honda MBX80 dealer

This is the MBX80 page from the 1984 Honda dealer brochure, basically it is the same as the 83 vesion I already have but with a different header.What is interesting is that the same shot of the white bike is basically used in all of the literature Honda produced.

News: Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show, Stafford

On Saturday 19th we visited the Classic Motorcycle Mechanics show at the Stafford county show ground.

If you have never been to this show I would seriously recommend you do so, busy doesn't describe it, if you are in to bikes from the 70's, 80's and 90's this is the place to be.

MBX80 wise, there was unfortunately nothing bike wise, I was hunting for a mudguard but this time there was nothing. I did also try to buy some oil seals, but they didn't have them on the booth.... Oh dear!

The Guest of honour this year was Christian Sarron, but again a little disappointed there was no YZR500...

Sarron's 1983 Yamaha TZ250
This caught my eye on the Different Strokers stand as my brother had a YSR80 in blue, possibly the only bike I have ridden that could upstage a RC30!
Yamaha YSR 'Gag' bike, very cool!
The MB guys were there again with two MB5's, an MT50 and a pristine MBX50. Love the MB5, as this was the machine I leant to ride on when I was at school!


Our aim is to show my MBX at this show when it is finished...
