Here's one that showed up in Milton, KY.
Of course I bought it.
Regretted selling the last one.
Pretty sure this bike was last used for a pit bike.
I can see white shoe polish on the front cover.
Common practice @ drag strips.
It sure is beat up like a pit bike.
You know what though,...I like a bike with history.

I also discovered a method by which I get my photos from my camera downsized by posting them on my facebook page, then saving those images into the "download" file on my laptop. Then, post those pix from downloads onto the board...not sure why I hadn't tried that before. I should probably create a thread for those other members who haven't figured it out yet....motor... :urban:

Many a moon has passed since I first saw the MB5.
It was 1982 and I thought, "pretty cool bike".
I've had 4 NS50f bikes in the last 10 years.
It has become painfully obvious that I am too old for the NS.
That's when I decided to sell the NS, and seek out a very nice MB5.
I would still be in the "Shifty 50" club, but it wouldn't be hurting to ride.
Several weeks of searching kept turning up RED bikes,
but I wanted BLACK. Thanks to facebook, an ideal MB5 is mentioned in the comments of a thread.
The rest is history. I had to trust that the seller was being truthful when he told me
that his MB5 was "museum quality". Skeptical, but I bought it anyway.
It arrived yesterday and my patience was rewarded with a "minty" black MB5.

Nice find! Looks cleaner than my red one, and that one is pretty cherry. I assume this means the mega NS50F ride for June 18 and 19 in Nashville is kaput?

Negative...ride is ON like Donkey Kong Vaughn.
I'll be leading the group on my Majesty, and m-a-y-b-e taking the MB out for city-thrashing after the rides.
And yes, this bike arrived in amazing original condition. I got lucky.
I will do a few things before I fire it off.
Then, I'll ride a few days to get a feel of the OEM status.
Then. I'll slam this HPI mini-rotor ignition it in give it a review.
