1975 MAICO GS400– ALL ORIGINAL SURVIVOR! 134 ORIGINAL MILES, FRAME # 341016, ENGINE # K407112, TWO OWNERS FROM NEW, TITLE INCLUDED, RUNS AND RIDES 96 Normal 0 false false false EN-US JA X-NONE Maicowerk A.G. was a West German motorcycle manufacturer. Founded in 1926 by Ulrich Maistch as Maistch & Co, the company originally manufactured 98 and 123 cc Ilo two stroke engines. After Worls War II, they began producing their own unit construction two-stroke engines, selling complete motorcycles. Maico made a brief foray into the automobile business with their own line of microcars in the late 1950s. Maico have also made go kart engines. The road motorcycles were named after winds... 'Blizzard', 'Typhoon' etc., but the company was better known for its purpose-built Motocross and Enduro machines, and for its 'Maicoletta' motor scooter, both of which sold in higher numbers than the road motorcycles. Maico Racing Motorcycles: Maico motocross (MC) and enduro (GS) racing models proved very successful in both European and American competition throughout the 1970s. While lacking the financial capital and big money race-team backing like that of the Japanese factories of Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, and Kawasaki, Maico riders such as Adolf Weil, Ake Jonsson, and Willy Bauer proved to be a serious challenge to the Japanese factories and produced numerous top three finishes in the Motocross World Championships. The firm also experienced some success in Grand Prix road racing competitions with rider Borje Jansson winning three 125cc Grand Prix races between1972 and 1973. American publication Motocross Action called the 1981 Maico Mega 2 - 490cc the greatest open-class motocross bike of all time. The 1974.5 400cc and 440cc GP, 1978/79 250cc Magnum and 1981 490cc models along with any year 501cc motocross bike are also some of the most sought-after vintage MX and twin-shock motorcycles to this day. One of the visual modernizations of the Maico off-road motorcycles was the move from a "coffin" style tank in 1974 to a "teardrop" style tank in 1978/79 on bikes like the 250 Magnum. The bikes later moved to plastic tanks in 1980 with the Mega 490. One of the largest contributions to the world of motocross suspension technology came in the 1974 season when the Wheelsmith Motorcycles team in the USA and the Gunther Schier teams in Europe forward-mounted the rear shocks on the Maico factory-backed motorcycles, immediately increasing the travel and ability to trump the competition. This initiated a frantic effort on the part of factory teams and privateers alike; chopping up their frames in a desperate attempt to remain competitive. Maicowerk AG filed for bankruptcy in 1983, but continued to produce small numbers of motocross and enduro models (re-badged as M-Stars in the United States due to legal issues) up through 1986. Subsequent manufacturers have purchased the brand name and applied it to their own limited production motorcycles. Modern open-class dirt-bikes are still being produced under the Maico brandname. The ATK Intimidator dirt-bike (reportedly the most powerful production 2 stroke motorcycle available aside from Maico's own motorcycles) features a Maico motor. After the company went out of business in 1986, its assets were taken over by a Dutch company, but to this day retains a strong cult following. Many riders restore vintage Maicos for display or to take back to the track.

Thiss 1978 Yamaha YZ250 is a true low hour unrestored all original barn find that I purchased it from the original owner 3 years ago. The original owner told me that the bike was lightly and sparingly trail ridden in fields and pastures for a while when new and never had any work done to it except that way back when he had the seat cover professionally replaced due to it getting a tear in it when it was in his garage, its a perfect job. The original tires actually are a perfect indicator of the hours this bike actually has on it! The bike sat idle for the better part of  30+ years and when I bought it, I cleaned the carb, new plug, new air filter and oil in the gear box and it fired up on the 3rd kick. It has basically been stored in my garage since for the last 3 years, and has always been stored inside since new. It usually starts in 1-3 kicks, and it runs very VERY strong and perfectly, and even idles well. (I race a modern 450 and vintage 1981 Maico 490s) The trans and clutch are perfect. Still on its original IRC tires. The rear shock feels like new, firm with excellent damping. The forks hold air and function as they should (feel like crap compared to modern forks!). All original plastic (still decent), and fork boots (no tears), and even straight unbent original handle bars. The pipe has some minor dents in the lower front head area. The original chain and sprockets are still nice. Even still has its original kick stand (remember when MX bikes came with them!) The original frame paint is still in nice shape with just some minor ankle rub wear on one side and on the underside of the engine cradle. If I was restoring it I would not repaint the frame and just do proper touch ups where needed. This would be an amazing start to do a museum 100 point restoration, or just go over it and prep it to race some vintage Ahrma motocross events. This is the true Bob Hannah era YZ 250, the year he dominated motocross and supercross in the 250 class. PICK UP ONLY. I have a full 1 1/4 mile modern motocross track at my house and any serious buyer is more than welcome to come and ride it and go over the bike in person, actually I would prefer that! Again this is a 36 year old MX bike, so there is age related wear from just storage as well as minor use. There are NO warrantees on the bike as they did not even come with one when new!!! Please feel free to call me and ask any and all questions or ask for additional pictures,  Rob 315 298 6797
