Marysville 1980
The CBX Made in America!

In April 1980, Honda gave their dealers a tour of their newly opened motorcycle manufacturing facility outside of Marysville, Ohio. At that time the plant was producing only two types of motorcycles, the CR250R Elsinore and the CBX Super Sport.

As part of the promotional material distributed that day were two 8X10 glossy B&W photos. Here they are!
