Just finished the restore last weekend (1978 Maico 400)
All new except the frame paint which was so nice I decided not to repaint it. As you can see by the front forks, footpegs and rear brake pedal, it was in fairly good shape for a 34 year old bike.

It's been 26 days since I crashed at Etown and I'm still hurtin, haven't even been in the garage working on the bikes. Longest time I have been off a bike in 2yrs or so, first time I have felt old. This sucks!

got a new toy to hurt myself on. thought you guys would appreciate it.

it belonged to a coworker who used to live in sacramento and race the golden state nationals in the late 80s. had some cool trophies from carlsbad, sacramento raceway, glen helen, and i think one was porterville? its been sitting in his garage ever since he moved here about 15 years ago or so. ive been bugging him about it for about 3-4 years. he finally caved knowing it would be going to a good home.

has spark, tons of compression, needs a solid going over though.









sudco?


this jug is hugggge








hey pv where did you get parts for your 89?

Thats actually a great bike! Sudco sells carbs and jets etc.
You can get most parts from Honda, plastic is available from a bunch of places, seat covers, seals, all available. let me know if you need help with anything? I probably have stuff that fits it as well.
Nice find!!!

Decided to take my race doctors(Kenny61) advice and try and "un pinch it" today and go for a ride. It's been so long my man card is at stake and my testosterone has dropped so low that I'm getting moobs again( there real and not spectacular).

So I'm sick with a cold, my ribs still hurt, my hip is half numb and half hurt but at 53 if I only rode when I was 100% I would never ride again....ride report to follow.

ouch. and I feel sorry for myself (:ymca) every time I go out taking pictures and my right elbow ends up hurting from lugging that heavy damn thing around. I feel your pain, though only a little bit of it. but heck, you're still young!

Good day! I was able to ride with no problem at all, I was super tight for awhile and my ribs hurt everytime I went through the whoops because you have to pull back and wheelie but I was fine after awhile. NICE!
