    I AM NOT SURE IF THESE ITEMS GO IN THIS SECTION OR ANOTHER (IS THERE A LITERATURE SECTION?)
    I HAVE A SMALL ASSORTMENT OF DEALERSHIP BROCHURES FROM THE 1980'S. LISTED BELOW IS WHAT I HAVE:

    1. 1985 - SHOWS THE BIKE IN "DEEP SCARLET" COLOR (I'VE NOTICED THAT ONE OF THE FORUM MEMBERS STATES IT WAS THE FASTEST COMPARED TO THE "DEEP AMETHYST" COLOR (THE VERY FIRST MOTORCYCLE I EVER PURCHASED WAS A NEW 1985 IN DEEP AMETHYST AND I THOUGHT IT WAS THE FASTEST). THIS (IN MY OPINION) WAS THE BEST BROCHURE THEY EVER PUT OUT FOR GEN 1 MODELS.
    FOLDED UP, IT IS APPROX. 81/2" X 11". FULLY UNFOLDED IT IS APPROX. 17" X 43".
    THE MULTIPLE PAGES SHOW ALOT OF DETAILS AND PICTURES. WHEN YOU INITIALLY OPEN THE FOLDER, IT SHOWS THE V-MAX FACING OFF WITH A FLAMED HOT ROD AND STATES "ANY SIMILARITY IS PURELY INTENTIONAL". THE BEST PART OF THIS BROCHURE IS WHEN IT IS FULLY UNFOLDED. IT SHOWS JAY GLEASON DOING A SMOKY BURNOUT. BELOW THAT IT STATES: "BAYLANDS RACEWAY, CA. YAMAHA'S 145 H.P. V-MAX BECOMES THE FASTEST, QUICKEST, MOST POWERFUL PRODUCTION BIKE EVER".
    $50.00 PLUS SHIPPING.

    2. I AM NOT SURE OF THE EXACT DATE FOR THE SECOND BROCHURE. IT IS A MULTI-PAGE BROCHURE, APPROX. 81/2" X 11" THAT STATES "YAMAHA PURE STREET" ON THE COVER. INSIDE IT SHOWS V-MAX MOTORCYCLES WITH AVAILABLE ACCESSORIES LIKE "PINSTRIPE KIT", "SISSY BAR AND PAD", "BATTERY COVER ACCENT PANEL", "INSTRUMENT COWL WINDSCREEN", AND "MINI III WINDSHIELD". OTHER PAGES SHOW ACCESSORIES FOR THE MAXIM AND VIRAGO. FINAL PAGES SHOW RIDING GEAR AND LUBRICANTS.
    THE REASON I AM UNSURE ABOUT THE YEAR OF THE BROCHURE IS THAT THE 2 V-MAX'S SHOWN HAVE 1986 STYLE SIDE COVERS BUT WHAT I BELIEVE ARE 1985 FRONT WHEELS. SO I ASSUME IT IS 1985 OR 1986.
    $50.00 PLUS SHIPPING.

    3. 1988-89 VERSION #1. THIS BROCHURE IS 4 PAGES AND SHOWS THE "APPLE RED" BIKE ON THE COVER WITH A WELL-DRESSED MALE HOLDING A RED HELMET AND PAYING A PARKING METER WHERE THE BIKE IS PARKED. THE INSIDE PAGES HAVE PICTURES, SPECS, ETC.
    THE REASON I AM USNSURE ON THE EXACT YEAR IS BECAUSE THE BROCHURE DOES NOT HAVE ANY YEAR PRINTED ON IT AND I BELIEVE BOTH THOSE YEARS HAD THE SAME COLORS SCHEME(?).
    I ONLY HAVE ONE OF THESE.
    $25.00 PLUS SHIPPING.

    4. 1988-89 VERSION #2. THIS BROCHURE IS IDENTICAL TO THE ONE LISTED ABOVE, EXCEPT FOR THE COVER. THIS COVER SHOWS A RIDER ON THE BIKE AT SUNSET ON AN AIRPORT RUNWAY. AGAIN IT COULD BE YEAR SPECIFIC TO 1988 OR 1989 OR FOR BOTH.
    $25.00 PLUS SHIPPING.

    Feel free to contact me with any questions. Thank you.
