It is just we call it oxidation red and silver best of both worlds
Drove up and helped the guy get his maxim 550 running
well, he ordered new carb boots, plugs, and some other bits to get it running right
as payment for the help he gave me the cover
I’ll be throwing this on my 550
Good for you! That looks like it should be easy (for those that know what they are doing) to scan and 3D print. As rare as those are might it make it more worth the time for it.
The guy even asked me “Are these worth alot?”
I didn’t really know how to answer though, I did say they are very rare, but I’ve never seen one for sale or a price
he did mention he had a friend who does 3d printing and scanning and could make them and sell them
But I dont know how well they’d sell, or for how much
The cover is easy enough to make, that goofy spring is the tougher nut to crack...........
No price given. Ultra rare 400 V3 2-smoker
Recent Meccum sale:
Cheapest 900 I’ve seen available, only the 2nd I’ve seen in Colorado
Would be nice to pick up and clean up, actually perfect, but I’m moving to Missouri in a couple weeks and am only taking my xj550 with me
Good grief.... I hardly know where to begin——
Right side cover
Right engine guard
Right foot peg
Right engine cover
I’m not being picky, just observing.
Yeah it’s bad, but for 1k then another 1k or so In parts and restoration, maybe not a bad end result?
who's near Winnipeg?
the headlight is worth more than his asking price
And it’s not a Maximum, either. It’s not a Maxim, EITHER......
I even want to say it’s not a 750, either....BUT—— Canada DID have a 1983 xj750rj, so he may actually be right on that point....... lol
The best deals are had from sellers who don’t know what they’re selling
Got my first Z1 from a guy that listed it as a KZ900. Rolled up, checked the VIN and rode it home for $500. I didn’t feel bad, he was a total jackass from the minute I called him. I would a been fine with a KZ but that was icing on the cake.
$392 per cc
One of the nicest XJs I've seen on cl
Pretty nice. Not exactly original. Way too much $$. For that I better be able to win Concours d’Elegance with it.
Yeah, wrong mirrors and seat cover...... color looks like a repaint, I don’t recall that color red.
good thing he’s not in a hurry to sell. But if it sells for close to that, it drives our price point up, so heck—go for it
