These are a few of the original brochures that were available in the UK when the MB5 was launched.
Sad to say, but after looking at this brochure at the tender age of 16, I knew this was the bike I had to have.
Wow look at the pulling power you can have at 16! About all of 2.5 bhp Well it worked on me as a gullible 16 year old!
Its the ultimate accolade! "Rocket Ron" Haslam on a black and gold MB5. It doesn't get any better than this!
The white version was not a popular choice of colour and are now quite rare.
This is an advert from the January 82 edition of Motorcycle Mechanics. HGB were selling the MB5 below list price (£399) and with interest free credit! This is probably due to the fact that it was now nearing the end of its production run.
