    HA! Actually not a bad idea for a quick/cheap fender for my ice racer!

    So,....a front fender backwards and a motocross fuel tank make a bobber?

    More like a BOOBER to me.

    Nah, he's asking a reasonable price for the pile of junk. If someone is looking for a parts bike it might work for them.

    </FIGURE><SECTION id=postingbody>Selling my RARE Yamaha Maxim X! serious collectors piece. My father passed it down to me, but I will be having a family soon so must part with her. her name is "the Witch", they only made this specific beefed up version for two years and there are very few left- and even fewer running. this thing is FAST FAST FAST. just had it rebuilt. all new internals, $1,100 dollars of brand new parts and work into it. should be pushing around 100hp now with the new High flow K&N filters. will smoke most other bikes twice her size, easy. serious inquiries only. google the specs, you wont be disapointed.

    ^ I would ride the shit out of that. Convert the side 'number plates' to pannier mounts and put on some dual sport tires... and that little bike would be fun!

    I'm about an hour away from that bike... if its still for sale in a few weeks I might offer him $900 for it and use it as my daily driver. I'm currently using my xs650 as my daily driver, and its getting to need some maintenance and mechanical attention...

    Does he mean engine parts or does he mean luggage? We may never know.
