What's Miaco

No it's not a Maico

It 's not a scambler. It's an Enduro bike
That's how they looked back in 1973! OOOps I almost gave it away.

BTW who said you can't use google? I use it myself

Hint: google won't help you much with this one I'm afraid
It would be helpful to look closely at the engine cases though.
It says SACHS! You see I was in a generous mood this morning and didn't hide this

It's a Penton Berkshire.

100cc?

Hey Tigetex!

I guess I didn't check the Penton as thoroughly as I should have, my apologies

Actually it seems that you got as close as it gets!

Penton was in partnership with the firm that made these bikes originally and was marketing them in the US.

I'm sure you can find it now

In any case your answer is partly correct as the bike looks exactly the same except for minor details.
