Smile Got my first bike

Hey everyone! Well, I bought my first motorcycle! Very excited. It needs a little TLC but nothing major. She's a 1985 Yamaha Maxim 700

Some pics:





She has a little cosmetic damage from falling off of a trailer, but nothing that affects the way she runs.

Excellent, that should be a great bike to learn on, looks like it's in good shape too. Ride carefully and enjoy yourself!

The absolute BEST thing about your "new" moto is: It came "pre scuffed" a bit - so no need worrying over any scratches YOU give it when you accidentally drop it the week after next.

Have fun, ride safe.

Wow, the old I-4 with extended forks "chopper!" That brings back the memories. I think this bike is the "Grandfather" of the new Yermamaha Raider! I like the '85 better.

Pretty much just off the trailer I need to get a new front tire before taking it out on the road. It's pretty much bald.

I always extend my "Keying" service to any of my friends that gets a new ride. Once the first scratch is on it, you can enjoy it.
