Well it is official. I am a new owner of a 05 trx450r. It needs alot of love. But i traded 400ex parts for it. So no complaints. As of rightnow the engine is draining the water out of it. It sat outside with no valve cover on it. To my absolute astonishment the swing arm bolt came right out. Cylinder is toast and so is the rod by the feel of it. But its almost complete. Missing just a few odds and ends. Now for the crazy. It came with a second frame that is gusseted and powdercoated. And a subframe to match. I will post some pictures to my garage as i did for my winter rebuild. Stay tuned!

Doesn’t look too bad for sitting outside, definitely a cool project

Haha why do you need a budget? Four Wheelers are cheap.

Is this one an electric start? Or a kick?

Got 450r parts if anyone is looking for some. Someone changed all the bearings in this botttom end without a press or even a hammer and bearing punch tool. They used flat tip screw drivers to wedge the bearings out..........just sad. Poor hondas cant pick there owners.
