Maico M200S

In the cell-phone picture below is Wilma on her Maico M200T which is a bit earlier than the S-models.
The engine is the same but the frame and rear suspension are different.
The picture is from a camping trip to Wales in 2009.




Cheers,
Piet.

Sure, I'd appreciate it if you let me know if one becomes available...

That has to be an early 1950s bike, with the plunger rear suspension. The small front brake always defined the 200s.

I owned a 1957 250 motocross bike years ago. 22 PS....

VH1's 18th sexiest artist of all time, closer to #1 in my book. So hot she traveled through time to pose with an Enertia.

And mum and dad on the Bantam.

There's a blog entry with another photo of the Bantam at this link.
Thanks Clarissa for these beautiful pictures.

From the same era here is one from a real lady adventurer also on a Bantam.
Last summer I read the reprint of her book on this trip. It is a good read.

That's no dog - it's an Airedale. The King of Terriers!

Our two wouldn't have sat on a motorcycle for long.

Maico in Wales

Yes you are right. The picture was taken in England just before crossing the border. From the moment we entered Wales it started raining and it didn't stop until we left Wales a few days later by crossing the Severn near Bristol (M4). It was not until we spend some time on the south coast of England that we dryed up completely. Still a very nice trip though.

Cheers, Piet.

And then, a few years later, in 1954 another Brittish lady, Brenda Collins made a similar trip with her Bantam;

Love the lady with the Airedale! We've just ordered the book.

Here's a story worth reading, Marjorie Cottle, ISDT rider.

That ad was done by Cooper Motors, the West coast importer in 1965 or 66. Gray International was the Eastern importer and was in Detroit. I worked part time for the owner uncrating and assembling bikes he retailed directly.

I have a friend who raced Maicos from the 1950s through the 1980s, and he still has two 501s, one of which is still in the crate.
