    Keep your eyes on Craigslist. This time of year people would rather sell their bike than deal with winter storage, and there are bargains to be found. Good luck and happy hunting.

    Otherwise, you'd have to change your name to Madmax-eca, which simply doesn't have the same ring to it.

    Ha ha..no it doesnt...30 yrs as an original XJ1100 owner..tends to bias me a tad...but beyond that..I could never get used to the stupid instrument clusters on the Secas that look more like a toy than a real motorcycle...YMMV..and it prolly will...

    The Maxim and Seca 750 share the same cluster. Some call it the Atari. Some call it awful. Apparently some like it...

    No they dont share the same cluster.

    The 750 Seca cluster is just for the 750 Seca.
    The 750 Maxim had two different clusters....
    A. The Atari cluster, which is different than the Seca Atari cluster
    B. The non-atari cluster which was shared with the 82-83 650 Maxim

    I use the Craigslist plus app on my phone I like it as I can search up to any distance I want to go by state/town. I’m sure you have something similar though

    Hmm. Wasn't aware of the 650 style cluster option on the 750 Max. Does it get a round headlight too?

    :( love the look of the Atari.....one of the main reasons I bought my Seca. But then again, if I wanted the classic look I could just jump on the boy's 550.

    The first step to recovery is admitting that you have a problem.:p
