Apples and oranges in the end with the one I brought forward...$10,700.00 final price on this one. Guess to buy a 1200GS for $5K it needs to have over 100K on the clock.

You don't see whole running Maicos much, but an old Maico frame with a Yammie motor in it doesn't seem too kooky, or rare.

Good thing it's only a 250 looking at the brakes and the kinda weather you get(wet brakes suck)it may be a good red light runner.

Ha, ya I have an 8 mile commute to work that is half dirt. The trails around here would be a lot of fun on a trials bike.

That is an xr200 engine. As for braking in the wet, just brake early
