After World War I, the name made a brief return when lightweight two-stroke models were constructed, using bought-in parts. The engines were the 318cc Dalm and JES, magnetos from EIC and Runbaken, carburettors from Amac and the two-speed gearboxes from Albion.
Being similar to many other makes, Maxim was one of a number that failed to survive.
