Olivia Newton John's Let Get Physical was #1 on the radio. Pierre Elliott Trudeau was Prime Minister. Anna Paquin was just born…. And this fabulous motorcycle was made! This is your chance to own a piece of history in the form of a legendary 1982 Yamaha XJ650 Maxim!
This bike is in great shape and starts and runs beautifully. It does needs a little TLC to ensure that it keeps purring for years to come, but more on that in a minute. Let me tell you about everything you are getting with this bike first.
To begin with, this motorcycle has it all! The Maxim has a super-smooth inline four, almost maintenance free shaft drive, comfortable upright seating position, low seat height, and a luxurious saddle.
But that's not all! Upgrades and accessories that you will get include:
- Ergonomic heated grips with infinitely adjustable control
- Upgraded ignition coils (Dynacoils)
- Braided stainless steel brake line
- Leather saddlebags
- Two windshields to choose from
- Luggage rack with a choice of either a passenger backrest or a top box
But there's more! You will also get a full parts bike! Yup, I will throw in a 1981 Yamaha XJ650 Midnight Maxim that you can use for parts. In these pics it looks pretty stripped down, but all the parts are there including the saddle, fuel tank, etc.
So why am I selling this bike so cheap? The fact is that it has a slow oil leak and needs a top end gasket job to fix that up. But, these bikes are very easy to work with and I will throw in a CD with all of the technical manuals you will need. If you are willing to get the gasket kit (aftermarket parts are abundant) and do the work, you will have a bike that will continue to run beautifully for years.
Bike is located in Wallacetown (about half way between London and Chatham).
