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!

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!"

Welcome back Jay! I found that bumper--it's in the pic--you don't want to know what it took to get that. I saw a NOS two years ago listed for $250; I shoulda bought it!!

Here's a pic of it I took it for a little ride in a swampy area. Still no mud on er!

Thanks for all the great comments on the Chili Pepper--you guys helped contribute to my obsession.
I grabbed a couple of shots of what I started with. A light rollover. The plastics weren't awful bad but there was a lot of cosmetic damage to the supports, bars, lights, bumpers. Stuck exhaust valve and the front clanked a bit from no fluid--everything with fuel in it had to be rebuilt or replaced.
Well stored--I gotta give props to the PO.
AND to the local Honda shop techs who got her running without running up the bill!!!
A picture from the shop desk about bringing in older machines:grin
