Hey Tpro it looks like you're a Maico fan as well. The avatar pic is me on my '82 Maico 490 playing around at some vintage rides in the last few years. Bought the bike in '82, raced it and it sat in my basement waiting for me for twenty six years. That bike was my first true love, the wife came along a few years later. Three years ago I did the complete restoration in hopes of getting into the vintage stuff and having some fun. Between my realization that I don't heal very fast after a few soil samples and my fondness for IDPA/USPSA shooting the darn thing is sitting in my basement again! If I get the urge to scare myself shit-less I know the "Big Red Sled" is right next to my reloading bench, patiently waiting for me once again.
