Maico / MAICO 4speed Squaries and Radials,, Legendary Handling
« on: December 07, 2017, 01:13:47 PM »
I believe a few things would have contributed?

I had a NON ltr 73/74 Radial as a whipper snapper.
I had already owned and had my bum on a lot of different bikes.

The Maico just blew me away,,,,
by the way it steered and its ability to "forgive" under(out of control) acceleration.

Lived near the old abandoned dump between Waratah West and Shortland.
Basically flat, finished in ashes from BHP waste.
Could do the Maico in top hole at full noise, back of just a bit to let it come back on its giddyup curve
then pull the trigger back on and launch it sideways,,, did that a lot
Felt at risk on other bikes, but to the Maico it was a walk in the park.

Went to Rutherford and Heatherbrae this arvo.
Heard  at both, total doors close on 11/12/16 if not before?

Bought new CIG, comweld WF,ever ::) acetylene reg $33 instead of 100. Etc.
Some things way better discount.
Like silver solder ;D 75% off brazing rods etc.

And no, a beer fridge wasn't the answer for me ;D

Aiming high for VMX, but I find the the hardest Resto is my own body and mind.
I am thinking it is easy for a busted mind to follow on after a busted body.

I know of a few in this community, who deal with body injuries replaced body parts and still manage to get their shit back together and on the start line. Big K for one has dealt with a lot of this(good luck with the new hip too).

I have been doing heaps of proactive health, diet, etc, etc etc,
I found a new addiction this morning and no doubt a clear path help my VMX dreams, come together.
YOGA, no not YODA, but a thing called Yoga.

Yeah, yeah, its for girls hey :o
Yeah, yeah, no sit Sherlock ::) ::) I am the only bloke in the class ;D ;D ;D
He, he, so  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Competition / Dual Leading front brakes on a Pre82/Evo Legal or not?
« on: October 19, 2016, 11:11:51 AM »

Before I finish my build, is it OK for me to put a Dual Leader drum of another bike on to my 81 Maico for Racing? NSW?
Say from a bike that never had linkage, water cooling etc ?
Like from an early 465 Yammie?

Please, I don't want to start another shit fight.
I just want to know if what I am doing is OK? to save turning up and being told no.

Thanks in advance

Something positive :) 8)

Been trying to sell some unwanteds on Fee bay to fund the too many projects Gig.

Installed the app on my phone,
It just did a audible "Ca-Ching" thing, as a notice came through that someone just instantly paid for an item.

I am liking it, sound of project advancement ;D  ;D ;D

Saw a promo for Blokes World, only out the corner of my eye?
But I am pretty sure it was about the left hand handle bar Brake/Clutch that this bloke invented/pioneered?

I maybe wrong,  ::) ::) ::)
