    Default 1974 Maico MC 440

    I have this MINT 1974 Maico MC440 that is AHRMA legal for the vintage class. These bikes dominated the open class during the 70's and early 80's and continue to dominate at the AHRMA national vintage races. I have not run it for 2+ years since there are no vintage races within 500 miles of me in Minnesota. Nice Maico's and CZ's are rarely seen for sale anymore. NADA book value is $5,600.00 I'll sell mine for $4,500.00 obo Jocko

    Wow, small world. That has to be the same Chris Carter I knew from when I was involved with the Coastside Motorcycle Club. He would show up occasionally and ride some of our events. I always liked him, cuz he was a very fast rider without a cocky attitude. I want to say he's maybe 5-10 years younger than me (a kid to me back in the 70's!). I checked out Motion Pro's website and I think I'll give him a call. Thanks for the tip! Dave

    Yep, man I spent so much money at Selby Motors. I wonder if Roger Selby is still around. Hate to say it, but he was a walking heart attack. Neat guy tho.
    I loved those smaller shops like Bob Sangalli's South City Cycles and the Maico only shop in of all places snooty Burlingame called Pappy's.
    OK, I'll zip it now....nothing worse than an old geezer talking about ages ago! Jocko

    Very clean bike! I had a 1974 YZ 250 back then, raced at the So Cal tracks, we would practice in the mornings with the open class bikes..... I hated the Maico open classers, you guys would just roll on the throttle leading to the jumps and throw sizable dirt clods right into my path...destroying my helmet visor, goggles, joffa, etc, not to mention multiple bruises........ah the good times

    Yep, Maico's and CZ's were the s**t back in that era. I remember when the new '75 Yamaha YZ (not the crappy MX) 360 monoshock came out everyone had to have one. I bought one and proceeded to crash on it every way possible. It was a bullit in a straight line but had wet noodles for forks and a crap front geometry, so it would just NOT turn. I sold it 2 months later to a guy who just wanted the motor for his Champion flatrack frame. The Maico's allowed many a average rider (myself included) win MX races. How's that go.......the older I get, the faster I was!

    Actually my two choices back then was the CZ 250 Falta replicia or the YZ 250, back then some of us read motocross action and believed what they wrote, they said the CZ's ignition and carb was junk, but handled like a dream, the YZ hauled ass but handled like a jap bike, so enter a kid that wanted to go fast and thought he would just hold on.... we have a winna...YZ.

    Nice bike. I rode a 71 Suzuki TM 400. Talk about a suicide machine.

    Had a Bultaco Wombat, and a Montesa 250 back in the day... Anyone remember the Penton's..

    Is this a flashback thread

    Good luck with the sale, nice looking bike
    I'd agree with you, but then we would both be wrong
