That thing looks clean! Hopefully will be an easy build.
yeah bro, i've seen a lot worse in my years..thats for sure !..lol. front diff is apart, front drive axles are trashed, I think the rear diff needs to be rebuilt as well ?. said the motor ran ?, but you just know I will rip the motor apart, and have a look inside !..lol. all parts are there from what I see ?, tires are itp mudlites with great tread and no dry rot from what I see ?, the front rack and rear rack are straight !!..lol. front bumper looks dirty, maybe some surface rust, but not bent !!!!..lol. all this and a free trx300 2wd complete motor ?, yeah..sweet deal for 500 bucks. did you notice the trx300 axle laying on the rear rack ?..lol. I wonder what other trx300 parts he has laying around ?..got engine, axle so far...lol.

Mileage & Hours ?
dont know bro ?, the battery is shot, but he said the motor did run before the front end and rear end went out ?. does not make a difference to me, I will rebuild/go through the motor, and it will be a fresh motor, display/meter looks rough, that will get replaced, so that makes the motor have zero miles, zero hours when I am done.

It looks like a good project bike shadetree. Finding an original owner bike is generally a plus, just got one man's works to sort out... rather than ten. LOL.
ain't that the truth !!..lol. I think it will turn out to be a very nice atv for powerstroke ?, time will tell huh ?..lol.

If you came down, you'd want to stay.

That said, these Southern states are full of simple, hard working, Bible thumping, gun toting types, so if you're not into all that you have to stay up there. We're plum full.

If that sounds good, come on down.
