1982 Maico 490 Sand Spider

Pure bad ass air-cooled monster. This bike was the king of the big bores in the early eighties. German technology and engineering resulted in a near bullet proof trench digger that dominated the European Moto-X circuits back in the day. This particular bike is in fabulous shape for its age. All original body work is in very nice condition, the suspension is still holding its oils and is sag free. All the parts on it are in original condition. I believe that this was a one owner bike prior to me getting it in the collection and it looks to have the original tires still on it. It fires right up with a big boot to the kicker and sounds pure nasty. If you know what this is than you also know that these do not come around often and never in this condition. Mostly because they are now old but a lot of times because the rider was ejected big time!
