Name is Jack. Happy to be around a helpful group of folks. Enjoy the pics. All original even the tires. Gentleman bought it from a honda dealer in state college pa in 1988 only used it to plow his driveway and drive around his property. Im looking to add a front rack to it and id like it to be proper not something i welded uo myslef but i cant find the front pipe carrier for it. Only one i found was on ebay for an 88 2wd that was thrashed checked 2 parts places and it is back ordered indefinitely which is understandable. If anyone has or knows where i could get the front carrier (brush guard ect..) for an 88 pm me.

WOW. Now that's a rare mint Cosmic 300.

Awesome bike.

The 88-only front bumpers are hard to find, especially for one in good enough shape to go on that machine.

Welcome to the board!

Thanks guys. This is what i need.
That is a tuff piece to find for any year now days , finding one in good condition for your bike is going to be costly and there are quite a few different ones over the years , I have a 92 and it is a one year bumper , I never will push on anyone stuck ---- I could see where you might get another model year and modify it to fit , cause it seems the top section is about the same on all years , it is the mounting arms that is different -------- another option , one of my 300 I built the front bumper for it

Stunning configuration actually – you’re right to be dang careful about how to accessorize it. You would have to drill holes into that beautiful fender in order to mount a rack on it. Maybe reconsider whether/why you need a rack on the front.
Need to put that up for ATV of the Month, Jack. Thanks for posting pics

I want that 300! It is absolutely gorgeous. The plastics are still the original color and mint. The decals are perfect. What a jewel. Please don't get it dirty or scratch anything. :) A rare find, indeed. I'll trade ya a 2014 Rancher and one cat for it.

This thing doesn’t even have the fender guards but it’s a 4x4.
Throw it up on fleabay and see what kinda offers you get. I bet someone give you $3500 unmolested

outstanding trx300fw !. you wont find any front racks or bumpers from honda ( oem ! ) for that atv. they just don't make them any more. ebay for used, or make your own is your only option today. salvage yards are a chance ?, but finding one that is not beat/bent up ?..well..if ya locate one ?, you better rush out and buy a lottery ticket !!..lol.

That member last active April 2011–too bad

Well me I would buy that optional grill guard that’s been on fleabay for at least two years and be done. Can’t use harsh cleaners on the body but you can try a little Novus plastic cleaner or carnauba wax to remove stains and put a lil shine on it

No worries everyone I'm leaving it as is, I use it to patrol my property so I just mounted the mini gun on the back rack instead. Otherwise it stays indoors. The guy I got it from really cared for it so I will do the same as I don't have time for cleaning up mud I like to keep my stuff nice especially this bike in particular. Thanks for the appreciative comments. I'm gonna take some more pictures I'm just waiting for a good thunderstorm to roll in for a back drop.
