True...makes for a good question, too. If it's so easy to get the title, as you say...why didn't you?

Also, is it currently licensed for the street? With no title, I'm guessing not.

BTW, you really should change the part of your CL ad that says you don't need an endorsement to ride this on the street. That isn't true, as it doesn't qualify as a "moped" by the state RCW definition. If you don't believe me, search is your friend...just sayin'.

1982 Honda MB-5 - $850 (Lynnwood)

I am selling one 1982 Honda MB5 motorcycle. 5 speed transmission. It's very clean and well taken care of. This was the only Honda MB bike imported to America, and the one and only year they did import them. These bikes have gotten quite hard to find lately! It's black with a freshly re-covered red seat. The tank and wheels were painted and clear-coated by my friend, and he did a great job. New decals as well. It's a very low miles bike, only 409.7 reads on the odometer, but the speedometer did stop working shortly after I bought the bike one year ago. I haven't ridden it a whole lot, so it's safe to say the engine is still very strong. Gauge lenses are polished and very clear, tachometer works perfectly, neutral light works. front disc and rear drum brakes work perfectly. It takes a few kicks to start if it sits for a few days in the cold, but once it starts it's great. It has chrome clubman handlebars, a left-side mirror, loud horn, and a rectangle headlight (works). I have installed a new intake and intake gaskets, and an authentic Italian Dellorto PHBG 21mm black carburetor with a Dellorto thread-on velocity stack intake. Battery holds a charge very nicely, I have the original Honda key as well. Also I have added a Homoet expansion chamber with new exhaust gasket (I also still have the original Honda exhaust pipe). I have the original carburetor and intake, original side-cover, and original horn and a brand new cone-shaped air cleaner (with clamp) if you would like to put this bike back to stock. This bike is pretty loud, and if you let it rev high, is actually pretty fast and so much fun to ride. Has really nice Avon road race tires on it.

I have no title, but after hours and hours of research, phone calls, and letters, I know how you can get one easily.

Bike is 50cc, requires no motorcycle endorsement to drive on the streets legally.

Asking $850 O.B.O.

Come check it out, but if you lay it down you have to buy it

Call me with questions or to arrange when to come by!

(425) 458-8481, my name is Michael

I didn't look up the RCW, but I did ask my friend who is WA State Patrol, he said they only really care about engine size, and anything 50cc and under you don't need an endorsement for... But I suppose it doesn't even matter that much

With no title and this economy it'll be tough.

If it doesn't sell for a while and you find yourself wanting to sell badly, i've got $400 on it.

Having no title isn't THAT big of a deal.

Buy the bike (btw, i think it's cool looking! )
Take it to the WSP. They run all the numbers (costs around $70)
if there is a record in WA state, it will pop up.
if no record in the state, they give you some papers. take it to the DMV, pay the tax, and you can register it. you get a 3 year ownership paper. if no hits on it in 3 years, you get a title. (but you have to file for it, the DMV won't just automatically send you one)

It's easier if the bike was never titled/registered in WA state.

BTW, i just went through this with one of my bikes. I'm assuming it's the same process for on-road/off-road bikes............If not, disregard all this, lol

Good luck with the sale, and thanks for posting it up! This is a bike i know nothing about, but it's still cool

These were sold as a street bike, so licensing it shouldn't be a problem.
Run it up to about 10k rpm before you let out the clutch, and they take off pretty well.

abcxyz91291, get the title and we'll talk.

True, but only for WA buyers.

Anyone from Oregon is literally screwed from ever getting a title for it. OR requires a title on all out of state vehicles, PERIOD!

Luckily I already did the "hard" work, I had the numbers run, it's not licensed/registered in WA or OR

No kidding? dang. i had no idea.

So if someone did the leg work here, and got the Washington 3 year thing, Oregon wouldn't accept it?


Well maybe it's so Oregon can't get cool stuff. Nobody likes a dirty hippie.

if you get the title/registration done,

I'd be really interested.
I have Cash

Edit:
also,
how fast will this thing actually go with a rider?
you said the odo is broken, does the spedo work?
does the factory oil injection still function properly?

The gauges are perfect and accurate, I restored and calibrated them myself, the reason the odo/speedo doesn't work is the cable drive on the front hub, it doesn't spin with the front wheel. But the cable is clean and lubricated, and the gauges work. The oil injector works. I weigh about 180 pounds, and on flat surface I can get up to about 50 MPH.
