old Honda's probably head for the scrap pile

Going to be doing some work at my cousin's place, these three machines are sitting on her property oh, she says there's more but I don't know if the other ones are locked in buildings or not. They are destined to go to the local recycling center. I know nothing about older machines, and whether or not these are of any value to anyone. I do know that it is a long Trek up here to Montana but could probably get them for little or nothing or free. Will check to see if there are any others besides these three if so will post pictures.

Yes sir, really sad to see machines like that abused so badly, I see Honda's just sitting next to houses, in fields, in storage units on trailers, some half covered with tarps that are barely worth using, don't get it. More than likely these will end up on the junk Pile or at the landfill. I have no knowledge, room, or desire to even think about any sort of restoration. Motors and trannys might be okay, I Can about guarantee they weren't swamped or sunk. who knows if someone had the gumption and right touch, they might could do something with them.

I certainly wouldn't haul them to the scrapyard.

List them on craigslist for $200-300 each. People will buy them for parts.

There's nobody around here I don't think that would buy them, too old. This area has gotten too big for it's britches. A lot of out of staters moving in here, not cool to own something old. Fully restored and retro yes, old and a work in progress, no. Don't know what she'll do with them. Moe than likley the
Junk pile.

I too think there is value in them if your willing to part them out, have time and a place to keep them till things sell
lots of parts there, that maybe won't sell in your area, but would sell in many other places., so would all come down to your will to work sales and ship parts

if possible, maybe some of them have miles and hour meters, to tell use better, as cosmetically, many things can look a lot worse than insides of many parts do!(motors, trans, rear ends,, and such as said above)
a lot of these older honda 's are still loved and valued by many today!
