1974 Maico MC400
Germany's Maicowerk AG was founded in 1926, but Maico is mainly remembered today as one of the leading motocross-bike makers of the 1970s. Renowned for their good handling and grunty power, Maicos gave an excellent account of themselves in international competition with riders like Adolf Weil and Ake Jonsson. With a reputation for razor-sharp turning, Maico 400 and later 440 models were a favorite choice of Open-class riders in America, especially on hard-packed tracks like Carlsbad and Saddleback in Southern California. They are still popular today in vintage racing.
