Maico Mobil MB 175

Before we don our helmet and goggles, perhaps we should reflect a little on the history of Maico and the launch of the unusual looking two-wheeler in 1950. For anyone who followed motocross in the 1970s and 1980s, the Maico brand is often associated with the screaming 2-strokes ridden by the likes of European motocross riders Badger Goss and Adolf Weil to championship honors during those decades.

Maico was founded in 1926 by Ulrich Maisch, initially building bicycles. Ten years later the German company expanded into producing motorcycles, using a 143cc engine manufactured by German 2-stroke specialist ILO-Motorenwerke to power its utilitarian range of lightweight motorcycles. At the end of World War II, with money from the Marshall Plan, Maico built their own range of single and twin-cylinder 2-stroke motorcycles under the name of Blizzard and Typhoon, and these were followed in 1951 by the Mobil.

This fantastic 1952 scooter was restored over 15 years ago by a true Maico enthusiast, since the restoration it has not been used much at all. As you can see, it is still in showroom condition. The mileage listed on the Museum certificate dated 27.06.2005 is 11282km, the mileage today is 11329km..so only 47km driven in over 15 years.

Halfway between a scooter and a motorbike, this two-wheeler was produced in Germany by Maico, a contraction of Maisch Ccmpany, between 1950 and 1958. Conceived as a “car on two wheels”, its inimitable look was particularly futuristic for its time and offered optimal protection for the driver. The spare wheel was even integrated into the body of this scooter, which offered two comfortable seats for its passengers.

This scooter with its nice design and avant-garde look is a great opportunity for an original experience.

In the scooter world the Maico is claimed by many to be the Holy Grail, they do not surface very often.

There is a good history file with this Maico from new, original registration certificate and many detailed restoration photos.

Just let me know if you require any more information or photos.

Price 23900€
