Awesome more please...the legendary '97 TM "Pink Pocket Pistol Whistle"

Euro vintage/evo scene looks like its doing well

Few of those rides would cause a stroke out at AHRMA tech

Those Blue Maicos are cool. I vaguely remember a couple guys (from the mid west or back East?) rode the 500 Nationals on them in 1990 or 91.

I think the most interesting bike to ride would be that new RMZ chassis with the old air cooled open class motor...wonder if it's 400, 465, or 500?

Those custom water cooled 85 yz 490s are awesome.

Farleigh is definitely bucket list!

That TM is a '95 and I bought it there, hopefully I can race it in Super EVO over there next year before I ship it back here. In 97 TM's were blue, it was the first year they were blue. I have one of those too that I am almost finished making race ready for next season of Midwest VMX.Photo

Yep the blue maicos are cool as hell, I remember reading about Maico having some riders doing the Washougal national in the early 90's but I can't remember who the riders were. I've always wanted a blue Maico and a pink TM, I got the TM now I need to find the Maico!

There was a blue Maico at ama vintage days a few years ago.
There was a TM dealer in Bloomington IN that opened in 95. They had a pink 250 that a friend rode till the 96’s came in. Never forget him racing it at a hare scramble in southern Indiana, the drunk hillbillies back in the woods loved him, said he was never so motivated to not crash in his life!!!!

It has always cracked me up how hung up people got with those bikes over the color, I always saw it as like old muscle cars that came in mad colors, they were so badass they could pull it off. It's funny it's not often a pink TM pops up for sale but when they do they are always black, usually rattle canned.

Ha. We loved it!! No idea where all those bikes ended up. Just one pink one but probably 8-10 blue 96’s.

It was called Great Dave’s, he was a long time Bloomington Honda employee who opened his own shop and took a few guys with him. Can’t remember how or why they picked TM other than they couldn’t afford a jap brand and we already had KTM (the days before KTM would put a dealership on every corner)
I think it’s called RevSport now. Not sure what ever happened with the TM dealership. I remember some crazy stuff with the main investor...
