Ake´s 1969 bike for the Inter am series was different than the GP bike he used this year. The GP bike was just a 360cc and lacked power. So for the Inter am series Maico came up with a 386cc engine, and it had a lot more of power. Ake remember when he rode that bike for the first time at Elkhorn, Wisconsin, on the straights, his arms was so stretched. The 26cc more made a huge difference.
