This is the first year for the Yamaha Maxim series. This is a one-owner motorcycle with a clear title. It has always been garage kept and virtually never ridden in the rain. It is in near mint condition. Everything on the bike is factory original, down to the handle bar grips. The photos show the bike with an aftermarket king/queen seat used this when the owner rides with his wife. Owner has the original factory seat in new condition. This motorcycle has been meticulously maintained. Owner states it is one of the finest pieces of machinery he has ever owned. Not only is it a collector item, this four cylinder shaft drive cruiser is a joy to ride – quick and responsive. She runs like the first day he purchased her. No throttle hesitation while pulling strong through all revs. No leaks and absolutely no oil usage. The owner synced the carbs one year ago and this was the first time it was needed – a testament to the quality of these carbs. Valve clearance checked a year ago and they were all in spec. Tires are very good with most all their life left. This is a bike that can be used with care as it appreciates.
