The 760 Maico's were built to compete with BMW 800 GS's in the ISDT from what I was told. Only 6 or 8 were built If If remember right & it used a Porsche piston! They also build some 504's -508's don't know much about them.

Yup! Just a big Maico motor, go look at a 83 Maico 490 & you'll see the resemblance. Don't know who developed that motor Maico or Zabel? But the 700cc is a low revving torque motor, I heard from a friend that the 620 would rev out & pull like ... more »

I had Adam do the lousy C4S forks on my 14.5 Factory Edition KTM 450 & they work great! Adam knows his stuff on the KTM & Husky's. I've heard he can get the AER forks working.
