Honda's road/trail styled MB/MT 50s arrived in 1979 and were sold in the UK as 'Sixteener Specials' suitable for 16-year-old learners. This meant that they were restricted to a maximum speed of – nominally – 30mph, whereas in foreign markets the MB-5 roadster was good for 60-plus. Mind you, removing the inlet tract restrictor swiftly restored the lost horsepower. Attractively styled and built to Honda's traditionally high standard, the MB/MT (there was also an 80cc version) was unusual for a small-capacity two-stroke in employing a balancer shaft within the engine. Acquired by its late owner in July 2005, this Honda MTX is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. The machine is offered with Swansea V5C document. No reserve.
