Châssis n°76301

- Un scooter d''avant-garde
- Un look hors du commun
- Original et rare

A mi-chemin entre un scooter et une moto, ce deux-roues fut produit en Allemagne par Maico, contraction de Maisch Company, entre 1950 et 1958. Il fut conçu comme une " voiture sur 2 roues ". Son look inimitable est particulièrement futuriste pour l''époque et offre une protection optimale du conducteur. La roue de secours est même intégrée dans la carrosserie de ce scooter qui propose deux sièges confortables pour ses passagers. D''abord équipé d''un monocylindre deux temps de 150 cm3 à 3 vitesses, la capacité du moteur passera à 175 cm3 en 1953 et en 1955, un 200 cm3 à 4 vitesses fut même proposé. Notre exemplaire, un MB 175, fut mis en circulation le 15 septembre 1954 et appartient à son actuel propriétaire depuis 2010. Proposé "dans son jus", ce scooter, assemblé en Allemagne est relativement rare à la vente. Notre exemplaire qui sera à remettre en route et à restaurer représente une belle opportunité de voyager sur un scooter avant-gardiste dans sa conception et possédant une allure hors normes.

Châssis n°76301

- An avant-garde scooter
- Outstanding look
- Original and rare
- From an important collection of Microcars
- No reserve

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. Initially powered by a single-cylinder two-stroke 150cc engine, mated to a 3-speed gearbox, the engine capacity rose to 175cc in 1953, and in 1955, a 200cc 4-speeder was produced. The model on offer, an MB 175, was registered on September 15, 1954 and has belonged to its current owner since 2010. Sold in its original condition, this rare scooter, assembled in Germany, will need to be restored and restarted. This scooter with its nice design and avant-garde look is a great opportunity for an original experience.
