Ever notice that the models you named are mainly being sought after by the same people who owned them back in the day and absolutely nobody else. Maybe they consider them the best because they themselves were in their "prime" in the 80s. Drive some of the newer 4 stroke machines and that ancient mindset would be changed very fast.[/QUOTE]
I have driven many modern atv's and do see there improvements and don't deny them
BUT these modern atv's got what they got DUE to these old classics, that were copped off of by all others and SET the bar, that they NOW beat
but for yrs and yrs they ruled the game
HOW many of todays atv's are still or will be sought after in 20 yrs likle these older one's are and I BET will still be
\ DUE to they ARE loved by so many
its like a first generation os ANY great item
it NEVER looses it attraction or value , due to HISTORY of that ITEN and all its done
you can say modenr atv's have better shocks EFI or???
BUT it will never change the facts that without the above models, MUCH of the NEW improvements wouldn;t be where there at
as these above models were ahead of there time and MADE all other MFG"S step up there game and for YRS they couldn;t even beat the above after tons of trying and a lot of MONEY!
SO< that is WHY I say they maybe are the best of the ATV's
untioll any NEW model has a following so strong
there all just in there prime for short periods NOT 30+ yrs of being sought after
the 700XX< yes a head of its time
but HOW Long did it last??
had it been such a SUPER ATV< it would still be made
NO company STOPS production is demand is there and it can be safely made and sold!
something HAS to be said when a model stays almost the SAME LOL< and is still wanted! by the MANY??
I have yrs and yrs on MX bikes, and wouldn't want a old 80's model over a mew one to ride all the time,
BUt a classic from that era is still a classic and well, SOME of them I would WANT l if I could have one
NOT because it brings back fond memory's
but because some of them were the fathers to what we have now and there is something to be said about that!
like who wouldn't want a like new vintage Corvette from a classic year!
NOT bashing a 2016 corvette , would love one of them too for all the improvements,
BUT a classic again will ALWAYS be sought after
and the hundreds of cars made, are NOT all classic's even with UP grades over a vintage [email protected]
a collectible is that for a reason, they stood out above the rest!, and that made them GREAT!
