1982 Yamaha Maxim 750 from United States of America
Just normal wear and tear. Brakes, battery, fork seals.
Great bike. Hold on when you twist the throttle. Handles great. Was the fastest 750 on the road in 82. I picked this one out while still in the crate. Never looked back. Back then Honda said "Follow the Leader, he is on a Honda". Yamaha said "Never follow anyone" and I didn't. I still have my Maxim; I need to rebuild it due to extended storage.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

Just picked up a tastefully converted 82 Maxim 750. It has a nice throaty 4 into 1 pipe, a shaved down Vetter front fairing, red-painted Yamaha emblems on the gas tank, and same red color engine valve covers. Runs & rides smoothly, speedo-rev clocks work evenly & steady, regular fuel checks calculate 42-50 MPG. An excellent runner for an 82 bike in 2018.
