    [edit]
    Auction ended. $7500 for a still-crated Maxim 650.

    I suspect that it would need to have everything done to it as a bike with 30k miles except shims and wheel bearings but the bearings would need to be checked for hard grease. carb rebuild all seals and o ings fork seals close look at the airbox and carb to manifold, rebuild brakes front, and replacment shoes in rear new tires

    WOW! Amazing! How did that survive so long like that?

    The closest thing I've had to that is one was also red, same year and with 1,108 miles on it. However, when I bought it the previous owner parked it for 25 years and it was corroded. I restored it several years ago now, and sold it.
