Each wheel gun mechanic has to push a button when they've tightened the nut. This activates a green light for the chief mechanic to see, and when all four lights are showing green the car can be released. The system used to be automatic, but was changed ... more »

Added reply in a thread Looking for help tracking down an old magazine article (best races in the USA) early 90's 3/11/2021 7:05 AM

If the article was in Dirt Bike, Dirt Bike Rider, or Motocross Action, there's a good chance I've got the back issue somewhere. I won't be able to look for it immediately, but give me a few days and I'll see what I can find.

Thanks FTE, that's very interesting. Over the coming weeks I'm going to be stripping the bike down to see what lies beneath the surface. It's a nice voyage of discovery to be on.

Thanks for the additional input everyone. It's great to learn more about this bike based on your collective knowledge and expertise.

Some great work showcased here. Do you - or Brandon - restore pipes as a service for customers? I've got a Pro Circuit Works exhaust for a '91 KX125 which needs to be brought back to life. We can discuss by text if it's easier.

Here are some photos taken today following a quick clean. The engine number is U405086, which points to the motor being a '73. The frame number is something of a mystery. It looks like 389625, but I haven't been able to match this to anything yet.

Thanks, I was hoping you'd see this and weigh-in with some observations. It's in a corner of the garage at the moment. I'm looking forward to going through it properly. I will add more pictures soon :-)

My Dad gave me this Maico a few years ago. It's been in storage until recently - the picture below dates from the 1980s - and I want to understand exactly what I've got here. I'm 99 percent sure it's a 1974.5 MC400. Dad bought it as a box of bits and
