maico

Here’s a really stylish old Maico 175.


Two things I REALLY love about this bike. First it’s a really cool old two stroke in a scrambler style that I don’t know much about (can anyone fill us in a bit?)…. and second the owner is OBVIOUSLY using it as it was intended! Fantastic!

Thanks again to Astericx!
