    MAW Cyclemotor/motorized bicycle
    I recently came across a motorized bicycle. This vehicle has a MAW cyclemotor attached to the rear wheel. The rear tire has raised lettered stating "USSR". There is little to no information regarding this machine on the internet. Am looking for anyone that can provide any and all information regarding this vehicle or motor. Thank you in advance.

If you have a query or information about these German motorcycles please
