Yep, they were basically a rebadged King Quad.

Interesting thing about the old AC 300's....they have disc brakes all around, IRS, and high/low/super-low. They also have selectable 4wd, AND they actually have a diff lock in the front diff, but you have to do some modifications to actually use the diff lock on the AC bikes. The King Quads had the 2wd/4wd/LOCKED 4wd capability, while the AC just had 2wd/4wd, but the 4wd LOCKED is there (same front diff) you just have to do some work to get it functioning. :: ATV and SXS Riding in British Columbia, bc atv forums, atv trip reports, atv photo gallery, bc atv videos, live atv chat room, bc sxs forum bc, bc atv and sxs forum bc, british columbia sxs forum, sxs trip reports, bc trails for atvs bc,

Father in law has two of the late 90's AC 300's. They were way ahead of their time as far as options go, but are a MAJOR PITA to work on, and the dang parts for them are $$$.

They're as bad as the 350 Ranchers with sticking carb floats, and when they overflow, the gas all goes in the crankcase. A new AC 300 carb is about $400-500 too, so leaky carbs on them isn't a cheap or easy fix.

Still very interesting machines.
