1979 Malic (LC50)
(1979 / Production Model)
Like the Carrot, this was a model that made its debut to answer the needs of an expanding market for "soft bikes" brought on by the success of the Passol and Passola. It had a two-speed automatic transmission power unit mounted on a U-shaped pipe frame that was designed for ease in getting on and off the bike. In addition to being shaft-driven like the Carrot, it had small, but wide tires and provided a spirited, sporty ride as well as smart, fashionable styling.
