honda big red 3 wheeler

today at school i was talking to a kid and he said he had a old trike in his barn. Well i told him i would look at it. i did and its in decent condtion and has pretty good compression. I asked him how much and he said FREE. i am going to get it tomorrow and i will post pics. Me and my dad are going to put some money together to get it running. I know it needs tire and a battery. Also what years were they made from.

Yea, you will be real lucky if that tank isn't rusted through and carb ain't bad. It really depends if the previous owner was smart enough to drain the gas out. Can't wait for the pics of that thing!!!

The bolt pattern is the same so pop them on and see if there's any clearance issues
