Kawi triple in something I never thought possible: an even worse chassis than they came with.

Looks to have an automotive type distributor. Was that normal for these old 750 two strokes?

Imagine that thing when the rear end breaks loose and it gets a little (lot) sideways.

The only thing that would make it more comical would be to put ape hangers on it.



Empty a bag of skittles into the toilet and then flush. It's like watching a five second long nascar race.

I'll be the weird one--I think it's beautiful. Impractical, yes. But I know what it would sound and smell like and I'd like to rev the engine on main street one night around a crowd of v-twins.

And a hand shifter..... With WWH in the saddle! I can picture it in my mind. Just like the comic books when I was a kid.

When I got back into Vintage\Evo bikes in 2000, I was on the Maico Brohters web site.

I asked a question about my 82' 490 Maico & got a call from the Gentleman that built that 3 cylinder Maico.

He sent me tons of information on setting up the Maico engines & some other Maico tricks.

00' BMW K1200 RS
83' Maico 490 ( The Project bike)
81' Maico 490
03' KTM 525 SX (In ICU)
14.5 KTM 450 Fe
