I've always wanted one of these 4-wheelers as they have the 300 motor and I just think they are cool. A family member had it and when I asked if they wanted to sell it they said I could have it! Has registration too. Tires are original, dry rotted but hardly worn. It was used to plow a small driveway in the winter and then rarely around a farm. Its been sitting for years. Haven't tried to start it yet as I want to drain the gas first but I have no doubt it will start. Merry Christmas to me!

Whadda think? Nothing I can't fix!

Some pics. One with insulation is the barn I pulled it from. Others are safely in my heated garage!!! This will be a good addition to my totally original 1984 Big Red!

Thanks! Yeah it appears to be in very good shape. I think I’m going to get the rims sandblasted and painted and obviously new tires. I looked on partzilla and according to them the few plastic pieces I need are still available. Getting a new battery tonight. I just want to bring it back to around original shape and then it will be used mainly for pulling a garden wagon around the yard. I have an Outlander that plows and is my main ATV.

thats funny. my sister had a great dane. what a bark. biggest chicken i ever seen. she did bark loud enough, to worry some of the neighbors, i expect. the 1st time she barked at me, i thought i done had it. she just wanted to play.
one time i snuck up on her, and my nephew, E were walking her, with a leash. its easy, to sneak up, when the lights are on. i run towards them, an when i got close, i cut out a yell.
the dane near pulled my nephew, up the ramp.
cheap thrills on my part. though, i laughed so hard, i could barely stand up. :grin

Bud , if all you want is stock tires and you need to sand blast the rims ( as you say ) , check with the dealers in the area , down here you can get a set of take-offs for $200 ( someone buys a new atv and upgrades the tires and rims , the dealer lets the set of stockers go , 4 tires andrims , mounted , inflated , valve stems , rim caps , good deal ) , but I see you are in New York and would guess everything is a lot more $

I'll give that a try thanks. The rims are just patina'ed a little. Won't cost me much if anything to get them done. With a good of paint they'll look like new again.

that is true , but by the time you buy 4 tires , some new valve stems , tire mounting , primer and paint you will exceed $200 ----I was lucky to have gotten a couple of sets of tires with aluminum OEM rims from the take-off program

Haha! Well over $200!! I think the tires I found were around $250.00 by themselves! So yeah, I'm going to call the local Honda dealer! Thanks for the tip!

A good all around tire is the MudLite , if you want a little more aggressive tire but close to stock , go with the Swamp Lites

I like the look of the Swamp lites but a quick search shows they are expensive and I didn't see them in my OEM size. By expensive I mean for a ATV that will see maybe 50 miles a year.

I did find Sunf Power A033 tires for $262 that are in my size and look cool. That's shipped to my house.

Called my local Honda dealer...closed! Next closest is 40 miles away so I'll be getting the wheels sandblasted and painted.

But probably gonna wait until after Christmas as my Amazon bill is getting hefty!!!
