This bike was purchased from a friend of a friend living in Lisbon OH. The Maico was a complete basket case when purchased. A fellow from California made the fenders and gas tank for me. It turns out the factory used Volkswagen paint in 1973. I obtained the formula for the Star Burst Orange and a local auto parts store formulated the paint for me. Radelli wheels were imported from Italy and I laced them to the original hubs using Buchannan Spokes. The seals were replaced in the bottom end and the top end was rebuilt using a Mahle piston. The bike has period correct Trelleborg tires.
