This week's collection comes to us from Terry Leemaster:
"The '78 Maico 250 was purchased from an old friend of mine who picked it up from Ebay. I guess his garage was getting a bit too crowded with old Elsinores and Maicos. As you can see, it was a little rough. I was able to find an authentic Wheelsmith motor for it and she pulls pretty hard now.
"The Honda is a 1974 MT250 that I restored a few years ago. Everything on it works just like it did when it was built."
