1982 MAICO 490 . irst year single shock motocross bike. I bought this and restored it about 10 years ago with the intention of racing the single shock class. Frame was powder coated. the aluminum Thor swing arm is from the era. the shock is a Fox Shock for the 1982 Maico. It was rebuilt by Mike at SRD Suspension and a spring was made for my weight ( 170 pounds). I added a Wheelsmith brake stay arm with trick adjustment. The plastic was replaced at that time. tank graphics were applied. the side panel graphics were added last week. The forks were bead blasted. new seals and oil. Billet Rage Racing ignition cover. case saver from Maico Only. nbsp;footpegs are big ones from IMS Racing. At that time I put on a new seat cover. new filter from Vintage Iron is in correct airbox. Cables are the trick steel braided ones from Terry Cable. Aluminum bars with new Magura throttle and new grips.  Stock pipe with DG silencer. The carburetor is a 38mm Mikuni. Bike starts and runs through the gears as it should. I have not had the need to open the engine up. it has all the power you'd expect from a 490.  The flaws are as follows. ding on front Hallman rim that doesn't seem to effect the rideability. The front cable has some sunburn on plastic coating. appearance only. Engine seeps oil from the right side case. I'll try to replace the clutch cover gasket this week time permitting. The tires will need to be replaced before first race.   Please feel free to ask any questions about this motorcycle or payment and shipping.
