Congrats to Goober for winning this month!

Goober



1986 TRX350A Fourtrax was built in Sep 85 and purchased in CA. First owner rolled it shortly afterward and never drove it again. Took nine months to get it titled b/c of back fees!!
Fixed stuck valve, acid-cleaned rust clogged fuel tank, replaced leaky fuel pump, rebuilt the fuel petcock and carb. Searched five years to acquire OEM parts and optional accessories: replaced both fenders, added 3M conspicuity stripes, hour meter, the Holy Grail speedo kit, headlight riser, front basket/carrier, rear cooler carrier with optional toolbox trapdoor, mud flap kit adding Yosemite Sam flaps, exhaust turndown, driving light lens and headlight guards, and hondaline front bumper. Future work includes adding a 12V hookup for work lights, comm and navi.
I have all the original parts including tires.

Goober congrats , that's a beautiful 350! Love all the optional oem accessories. Do you plan on ever getting it dirty or is it staying clean?

Well done goober, it's certainly a one of a kind ATV, not many like that here in the UK. It's nice to see such a well loved machine.

Thanks Feb ATV of the Month

Thanks to you all for choosing my 86 Fourtrax 350 to represent the Honda ATV Forums for Feb '17. It's an honor to represent your years of enthusiasm, dedication, technical expertise and innovation in the enjoyment of these splendid machines.

I'm astounded by the quality and complexity of the Chili Pepper Fourtrax and am fortunate to have found this one! I do hope to her a bit muddy; not swamp witch muddy but don't want her to be a garage queen either!

Membership in the forums Led me to reap much more enjoyment out of that little rig than I ever expected. It's true "You meet the nicest people on a Honda."

Ride Red!

Yeah, that's a pretty sweet old ride. I had an '87 Bayou for a few years that was in similar condition and there's something very nostalgic about those old quads from the '80s. Very cool, and well deserved.

These older 80 bikes are so much better than what is made today and have so much more character. Why honda stopped making this exact model of 350 is beyond me. It would sell like hot cakes today especially and would still pull anything else backwards!

Thanks FF I remember that! at the time you posted I wasn't sure and didn't want to race to the podium like Eric Zoolander!

I am very happy to represent! I am a super fan of "repair" threads--but I also bring the biz to my local Honda techs! A sign in the repair shop says something like "we charge extra to work on old stuff!"
