Electric start scooter top of the range in 1959 and very expensive in their day , the previous owner has had this machine fully restored with help from a well known and knowledgeable Maico enthusiast. Comes with a clock which has been restored and a fabulous new stainless steel carrier.

We cannot stress enough how high a standard this scooter is.

The Maicoletta was a motor scooter built by Maico from 1955 to 1966. It was noted by motorcycle journalists in the United States and the United Kingdom for being powerful, responsive, and comfortable. It was one of the heaviest and most expensive motor scooters with typical styling and engineering of its time, and comparable to other manufacturers' products such as Heinkel Tourist, Zündapp Bella and the British Triumph Tigress and BSA Sunbeam.

The Maicoletta was highly regarded in the United Kingdom. When the Maicoletta was first exported to the United Kingdom, it was one of the heaviest and most expensive scooters sold there. Though known as the “dustbin” amongst British scooterists with Italianate tastes, it gained a reputation in the U. K. as a high-quality, heavy, powerful, scooter capable of being ridden in comfort over long distances. The brakes were noted at the time by Motor Cycling and Scooter Weekly for being powerful and progressive in that the braking force increased with increased effort against the braking controls. 4 speed manual gearbox with heel-and-toe shifter pedal, enclosed chain drive. Top speed 68 mph (109 km/ h) (247cc)
Power14. 0 bhp (10. 4 kW) Fuel consumption 71 mpg?imp (4. 0 L/ 100 km) (with 247 cc engine)

The two-stroke engine of the Maicoletta used an unusual starter that rocked the crankshaft back and forth before firing instead of rotating it.
