Looking for some help with a design/logo

Hi all. My hubby would love it if I could make him a new Maxim 650 emblem for his bike. The best picture we could find is the one I have pasted below. All I need is the gold lettering. I have tried to pixel trace but I cannot get sharp corners on the letters. I am no expert in PSE but I tried to erase the background to get less interference but because the picture is not good I still can not seem to get a nice sharp corner on the letters. Can anyone help or does anyone know of a font that is just like this? Thanks so much

    I'd first convert that to Black and white since you are probably making a vinyl decal. Then from there it would be easier to convert or trace..Hopefully this will help...

    With something that low of resolution, but with simple shapes, another option you have is to hand trace/draw it with the pencil or bezier tool. Here is my attempt:
