MAICO 490, 490cc , Manual 5 speed, 1981, Red. MAICO 490 REED VALVE TWINSHOCK MOTOCROSS BIKE This special machine was built for Ex Pro Motocross rider Alex Rach to race the national twinshock series but actually only got used in a couple of meetings and the VMXDN at farleigh castle. This engine is a brand new Maico 490 from the now builders of the current Maicos German Company Kostler. The Air cooled motor, apart from the much lighter Magura hydraulic clutch, are as good to ride as the original iconic 1981 490 reed valve 60hp power house, just with added bomb proof reliability ! The guys at Dikdo Maico built this machine for Alex with every single part brand new and all chassis geometry designed around the original Maico. This bike cost over £15000 to build and is the best twinshock motocross bike you could possibly buy. Only the best components were used to put this machine together with Reiga shocks, Renthal bars, sm pro rims, michelin tyres, the forks were built by twinshock specialist Race base.All finished off with billet controls, brake plates and engine covers. Race winning machine ! This bike would be a fantastic race machine or would be an amazing collectors item as probably the trickest 490 Maico ever built !
