I've owned about every model of ATC other than the 350x. Currently I only have a 1979 110, mostly original. I would post a pic of it, but I haven't moved my pics off of crap Photobucket yet so it would be blocked.

Love the ATC's..

They are getting harder and harder to find... Parts discontinued..

This is my latest.. Only mods are the handle bars and the bull bar I made out of what was left of the rack when I got it..

Lots of compression.. No smoke.. Pretty damn straight.. Etc...

you'll missed out if you were looking for Honda ATC projects and or parts , about 3 months ago I guy I have known for a while , who fixed them for years and was kind of a collector of ATC and TRX early models , he was moving and had to clean the property , had no room to take it with him and wanted it all gone , he listed an ad on Craig's list for 30 of them and many parts , everything from 70, 110, 185 , 200 , 250 -------I was lucky to score 3 - 250 rear ends , 250 cams and a bucket full of 300 parts , then on his finally pass of cleaning I got a TRX250A parts bike cheap from him , all to use for 300 parts

I know of another deal on vintage atv's right now , guy has 2 TRX250R's , one is a dragster with all kinds of mods and stretched out , another has all kinds of mods to the engine but looks stock , both of these are pristine condition and crank right up and sound amazing with the custom pipes , the third one is a complete parts bike , he wants $5 grand for the three

I have a friend that has about 15 ATCs & a few TRX250s. He's got a couple 350X bikes I'd like to have, but he won't even talk to me about them. Can't blame him really...

Never knew a 350x existed, had to google it just now! Wonder if that was for the USA market only, never seen or heard of them here, not even parts/spares.

Wow I didn't know that! The ATC350X was very popular over here, though it was discontinued after only two years in production (85 & 86) due to ATC safety concerns. It had the same motor Honda used (identical except for its 6-speed trans) in creating the first TRX350 in 1986. The 350X weighed just over 300 lbs soaking wet, so it was a very strong torquer (and with 26 HP @7000 RPMs) right off idle. They were very fast bikes stock.

Yeah In all my spares searches through various sales websites etc I’ve not once come across 350x parts, spares or a complete bike! Over here the ATC to have is the 250r, I see them selling upwards of £5000, big money!
The little 70’s seem to be somewhat of a collectors item just lately, noticed the prices going up over the last few months. Don’t see many 110’s, a few 200’s and the odd 250es. Most of the 250es are in need of repair and sell for around £500.
Folks that have a half decent running ATC here seem to think they have the only one in existence and therefore it must’ve worth a fortune, bonkers!

The 350X was sold in the US and Canada, no idea if they made it to the UK but I assume not by your reply lol.

Last one I had was an 85 250ES Big Red, but I stole the cam and clutch basket/primary gear out of it and sold the rest for parts lol.

I'd love to have a later model 250R or a 350X but it's hard to find them in good shape and not $3500-5000+++ maybe I'll buy the parts and just build one.
