Worth every penny! Little engine work, elbow grease and paint, it'll be good as new, I see a lot of potential right there...

Whatever is currently in one piece... 400 prairie with stuff, 300 fourtrax, 500 sportsman, yz 125...

You mean you don't have it finished yet, Shadetree? I thought you would be done by now. You've had most of the day to get it done. LMAO!!!




Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.
