Maico 400 Mega 2,  Just a Beautiful Racer

This is the little brother to the fire breathing 490.  Maico made some of the best twin shock Open Class Motocrossers ever built.  This one is a great example of the breed.

The CZ MX has been a popular racer for decades.  Many of the biggest names in motocross raced a CZ at one time or another

This CZ has some really high end components.  The tank is a work of art.  The welds are incredible.  The photos can't capture the quality of the carbon fiber fenders.

The RM was Suzuki's weapon against the other Japanese bikes in the small bore MX wars

This RM has a custom reed valve, high performance head, and a tuned exhaust.  With fully adjustable shocks and works style fenders this one is a show stopper
