General Two Stroke Talk / Maico-the final answer
« on: May 03, 2010, 03:44:04 PM »
Don't get me wrong,I think all the old bikes are super cool but to compare them to modern day in power or handling is a bit of a reach.
Anyway,two examples.The first is from this months mxa's ask the mxperts.I'm not going to type it all out as I already did and for some reason was unable to post it-likely a Maico conspiracy :D
Paraphrased,the guys asks where he can find a good old air cooled open bike like the maico he raced 30 years ago.Their reply-buy a modern day YZ as it has more power,etc,etc, than your old maico ever dreamed of.

Example two.A real race video of a Maico 490 ridden by Jonathan Belle.Vid lasts about 5 min.Take note of the handling of the other period bikes in the race.As for how this turns out,yes,this was largely what it was like back then as many of us lived in that era.

There,end of discussion.You're welcome :D

General Two Stroke Talk / This is driving me nuts
« on: January 01, 2010, 04:59:37 AM »
A few years ago one of the mags tested a dirt bike where a guy had put a two cylinder air cooled two stroke engine in a more modern day frame.I thought it was pretty cool at the time but can't for the life of me remember what it was called.It wasn't just a one off as the guy had formed a company and would sell them to anyone interested.Does anyone remember the name of this bike or any details?

General Two Stroke Talk / The problems with this site as I see it

#1  Part three of the long term Maico test appears to be missing

#2  It appears someone stole the "Two stroke"  arched front fender stickers from the store

C'mon man,patience isn't my thing ;)
