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.
