1982 YAMAHA xj550 CAFE RACER
Me and my dad built this 82 Yamaha Maxim xj550 that we bought. We did a
bunch of custom work here in our two car garage. The list of things done to
the bike is quite long so I'm not gonna get in too much detail but if you
have a question about the bike let me know and I'll try to get to you and
answer it. Enjoy and thank you much for watching

Yamaha RD50m Caferacer - Fast 50cc
Drive by video, top speed in the video is around about 100 km/h. I can't
keep the moped full throttle for too long, because of the poor thermal
characteristics. When solved the top speed should be 120+ km/h.

MAXIM CAFE RACER BUILD
This vid shows the 1st stage of the build-up of my 1982 Yamaha 650 Maxim,
into a modern day Cafe Racer, while still maintaining the spirit of the
original racers, back in the day. No high-price build where you pay large
sums to have someone ELSE build your bike for you. Everything is done on a
budget and all the work done by yours truly. Enjoy.
