I had a 200 back in the day. Mine was chain drive. I loved it. However, if I had a choice.... Shaft drive all the way!

I’d have either, chain drive requires more maintenance and of course chain replacement every -2 to 24 months depending on riding conditions/abuse! Shaft drive is almost bullet proof!

I would go more on condition than what mechanical parts it has. Those all have pretty much the same engine, just the way it turns the wheels is different. The 200es will have the most features of the 3, and was only made in 84 but they made a ton of them so lots of parts are available. The non ES with reverse must be a 200M, which would also have e-start. Nice trike. The regular 200 would be pull start and no reverse.

If you can post pics and prices of the 3 I would tell you which I would buy.
