value of vintage maico bike
1959 Blizzard 250
My friend recently acquired a 1959 Maico 250 Blizzard that is in pretty decent shape, although it is dismantled. I love the style of the bike and would like to purchase it from him. He's the kind of guy that won't ever touch the thing and it will never get restored under his ownership. I know he'd sell it for $1500, but I want to make sure that it's worth that and that I can find the parts to restore it.  What is your opinion and are parts for this bike still available somewhere?  Thanks.
Washington State, USA


For parts, suggest you start with the Maico directory at bikelinks:

I am not really sure what I have. I put it in my Moms garage in 1975, and it was old then.
The engine number is R113.52-002-1 if that will tell us anything. I was told at the time it was a 1960 model. Any info you can give me will help in my new restoration project.

Maico Magnum 440cc 1978 For Sale
Purchased new from the famous "Wheelsmith Motorcycles" shop in Fountain Valley, California. Wheelsmith was known back in the day, as being the "Shelby" of motorcycles. Guys would have their bikes upgraded with factory approved modifications at the Wheelsmith dealership before taking delivery of them. As you can see by the pic of the original receipt here, there were a number of factory/dealer mods made.

Receipt reads: 1978 450 Maico, Eng# RT3380659, Frame# 3364762, W/E Pegs, Case Saver, Mud Guard, S'Stl Spokes (rear), Gas Cap, Case Split, Clutch Mod, Shim Trans, Port Cyl, Polish Linkage, Set Squish, Pin Main, Custom Pipe, WhirlPull Throttle, Terry Throttle, Terry Clutch, Fork Seal Mod, Drill Dampers, Size Cyl, Lighten Piston.

Original paperwork includes the Maico Magnum Owner's Manual, The Build Sheet (receipt), A handwritten note from Phil Smith on Wheelsmith Engineering letterhead that reads "Dear Mark, Enclosed is the Manufacturer's Statement of Origin with our endorsement to you. We have not had to get the notorization down here. However, if you need it in Oregon I'm certain the bank w (sic) some one will sign it for you. Hope the bike works out fine and you are winner. (signed) Phil Smith". Of course, the statement of Origin and title are included.

Runs excellent. Normal wear for an off-road vehicle that is almost 30 years old. Near new shocks. Was rode regularly up until last fall when new bikes were purchased for the household.

There are two small tears in the vinyl seat on the side. The pipe seat/seal (where it goes into the head) could use a stiffer spring. A bit of smoke comes out of there while
the bike is warming up. The shut off switch is not there anymore, just the wire. Touch the wire to the handle bar and the bike shuts off.

The case has the usual minor seepages here and there and the compression relief has been plugged.
