    I saw more than a few of these Communist-era 2-stroke scooters in Berlin. Most in rough shape, but some were restored.

    Not a rare bike but an "individual" paint job.

    I rode my red 1997 1100 Sport to last weekends Euro Bike show in Raleigh. I parked next to the red 1985 LeMans 1000, which I used to own..... I sold that bike to someone in Raleigh in order to raise some $$$ so that I could buy me a black 1388 original mileage 1997 1100 Sport.

    Growing up, I had a Honda SL70. I moved to Tucson in 1971 and met a kid out riding his bike.
    It was the first time I had seen a Hodaka Combat Wombat. I thought it was the coolest bike ever.
    I begged my mom to let me spend some of my money on a 125 and she let me get a Yamaha YZ 125.
    We rode around the desert all over Tucson on those bikes. That Hodaka could move.

    The same guy I met riding the Combat Wombat was into racing.
    He was good enough to get sponsors and decided to step up to the open class.
    He chose a Maico 501. I tried riding it a few times but it was just too much bike for little me.
    I had a hard enough time starting it.
    But he could ride the hell out of that thing and went on to get national sponsorship.
    Eventually riding for Yamaha.

    That Maico was a beast.
