Default OK OK.... I bought #7..... 1988 Vmax

Original Owner... 30k miles, in excellent shape. Got a factory mini screen which I ll sell. Other than that..... all factory original. The exhaust got a garage ding and the guy put the Vance and Hinces tags on it to hide it lol.

I rode it home, 25 miles in 35 degree weather with it misting rain. Smart eh?

Front brakes feel mushy. I think the front master needs a rebuild. New tires front and rear, new battery, new starter, fork seals done and oil just changed.

Ready to ride minus the front brake issue. Has a little pop in the carbs, but it was winter gas with stabil in it. So I ll put some good 87 octane in and let it rip.

Honestly, I wasn't really planning on buying another, but figured my girl might like to ride a cruiser a little. But once she sits on the back, she might want to get back on the ZX14 seat ( which is a 2010 concours seat ) which is wider and more cushy.

Texas Tornado had a Eliminator and I was going to go take a look in a couple weeks if he still had it. But this popped up locally so I thought I would just go check it out and see for shits and giggles.

Well $1950 less in my wallet and I rode it home....

I think I ll probably go through it and end up giving it to my son since he liked riding my last Vmax. Who knows..... not sure yet.

Nope I ll have the 14 at MIS. Gotta hit 200 mph. Can't do that on a Vmax even if you dropped it off the empire state building lol.

Good looking bike. 200mph is possible though takes a lot of money lol. Bill did the deed years ago on his 1570cc bike at the Maxton Mile event.

For the cost of the 1570 motor, I can buy an almost new ZX14...

Looks very good. I like the color, but you need some polished or chrome scoops (my opinion).
