Against my better judgement (since I don't think this bike will ever do the Ton), I'm going to post it anyway-

I thought I retired last year, sold all my beaters & basket cases, stopped taking client work. Last month, out of the blue, my 13-year-old daughter asked me when I was going to teach HER to ride? Then I remembered this FORMER jewel in my friend's back yard; since I last saw it, the elements have NOT been kind...



For those who don't know, it's an '82 Honda MB5; very trick little bikes. They'll take an MB8 top end; but even better, you can swap out the engine for an H100 (although probably more than the chassis can handle.

Already received a decent (but split cover) seat. Ordered today: Gas tank, Engine bottom end, Top end, rear cowl, chain, battery, carb, master cylinder, caliper overhaul kit, brake hose, base & head gaskets, and petcock. Tires hold air, so I'll hold off buying new tires 'till it's running. Probably in too deep, but I can't stop now...

That should make a pretty slick little unit for her.   8)

Love the MB5s. I keep an eye out for a cheap one ever since I was following Perry's build from like 10 years ago... lol

Had a great opportunity to get out on my almost complete " winter project "

Class of 82 " Barn Grab .CB650 SC " Nighthawk. One year only bike! Last year for Honda's great SOHC engine.

1085 miles! All " freshened up and restored to look like a low mileage example. Cool little bike! Runs smooth and pull hard. Did about 50 miles.. afternoon and evening.
