  1. Rode my Chromoly Mongoose BMX bike all over the Jersy shore with this unit on my shoulder back in the early 80s. (what would kids today who complain about their smartphone being too cumbersome at times think of about 15lbs on their shoulder just to hear good music. lol)

    If anyone has or knows of a very good or better condition RX-5080 for sale please feel free to contact me. I would love to have one in a case on my wall for nostalgia.
    Those were some “Good ole days” for sure…. (Amazing website for us gen-Xrs btw. Thank You)
