I passed on a Nos Maxi S because way too much money for a thin rim, gooseneck handlebar bike,

I don’t like the aluminum lo torque cylinder and the five wire system on those those bikes either.

I’ve had enough Maxis that were pretty much mint so anything brand new once use it once it’s not brand new anymore plus many I got for $100 or less

But I had a lead on two magnum II’s new in boxes several years ago and was hoping to get them for for around the price they were new or cheaper,

l was excited, I wanted to have one to ride and or sell and keep the other one unused

But when I got there they were stored in a wet leaky lower level of a building.

Weren’t really in boxes just cardboard around them that was previously wet, rims were rusty, bars rusty, curled decals, one of the tank rusty inside,

The other one the engine was locked/wouldn’t turn over both had engine corrosion, the seats were mold damaged and worst of all they smelled so bad

The guy thought he had gold and wanted 1,100$ each he said they’d be sold easily for that price but he had mold not gold

He contacted me a year later and asked if I wanted them for a around a hundred less but I didn’t want to stink up my garage and house to maybe get one good bike for 2 grand
