sachs sold the name to china according to everything i've ever heard, but i don't know for sure. it should say on the vin plate where the thing was made.
i just don't understand why they are too slow. my 1972 50cc sachs 5 speed supposedly does 50 stock, and while that's pretty slow for a 5 speed, it's sure a lot better than 30. how many gears do the madasses have anyway? i don't even know.
