Interesting combination in a old school dirt bike. Montesa with a Maico engine. Looks pretty clean ??

That has got to be a tractor with the size of the rear sprocket

This reminds of something I read in a dirt bike magazine decades ago - that Maico designed the tranny shafts to spin faster, thereby putting less load on the gears, and making them more reliable. Also puts less load on the chain. This required big rear sprockets to slow it back down. Necessary for lots of HP and not so good materials. That may be why Maicos always have big rear sprockets.

Is that a Vetter chair? Don't see a lot of those - I know a guy that owns three of them, will send him the link.

Justin,

It's a Vetter Terraplane, the later model so I believe that has more mounting points. My limited research tells me they made about 1,000 of them, if your friend wants to contact me he can send me a mail linny999@hotmail.com

It really is quite a piece, I have bought and sold a lot of Goldwings in my time but I've never come across one of these. Somebody spent a lot of time and money on this thing.
