he was a tad eccentric. at the time he had yet to get it running. claims he couldn't get a starter with enough oomph to spin it. this was taken at Mid Ohio 2007. there was a clip on youtube where he talked about it.

still is!

Jim was a character. He was a great resource for old Maico's.

Hammer dropped at $8500, I'd call that a good buy considering what it was.

works 250 MX bike

Back in 1971, I bought a Kramer motor 250 Maico from east coast distributor ( I worked at large Maico dealer in NH) , it had radial head,aluminum swing arm and tank, cunutts, thicker seat and titanium bars . was ridden in trans-am by one of European riders. Raced it myself for few years then sold to a man in great Barrington Ma. Sorry no picture. Anyone ever heard of its whereabouts ?

This is a 73 440 "barn find" that is in line for restoration. A friend (at the time) won the summer expert open summer series on it at a local track in 73:

Hard for me to look at it now.

Yikes,that may not all buff out. Looks like it has the classic "snapped off kick shaft" issue? A friend had one of those back in the day,nice torquey fast great handling bike,he could fly on it but wasnt a real good wrench,always something disintigrating or flying off on the trail.
The kickbacks were spectacular,he didnt keep the comp release working so broke the cases and nearly his ankle.
Old bikes required some know-how.

I remember those bikes,the Banana frame Jawa's. Supposed to be tough as nails and designed to be fixed at trailside easily. Cant be many running around today.

Yeah, it would take a lot of love to bring it back. I got it back in shape in the early eighties, then loaned it to a "friend" who wanted to get back into riding. When I tried to get it back I got a run around. Finally it showed up when I was at work and it was apparent it had been left outside for at least a year. I try not to find it when I go into the barn where it has been since then.
