HONDA SS50 & HONDA MB50

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Dream Garage -

A ratty 1977 T-reg Honda SS50 was the first mo­tor­cy­cle I ever owned. It had a badly-sprayed pur­ple fuel tank, a ter­ri­ble ca­ble-op­er­ated front disc brake and cost me £90 in 1981 (which seemed like a lot back then). It did over 50mph and my sec­ond bike – a much more mod­ern two-stroke Honda MB50 – strug­gled to hit 30mph thanks to its re­stricted mo­tor. It looked the part though and as a 16-year-old look­ing cool was a big part of bike own­er­ship.
