Damn, the gold wheels are DOPE.

I still have mine!

Many a man has lost his soul on one of those. A 1984 200X still owns mine.

I wouldn't say I lost my soul, but I did lose a few layers of skin from my calf when I ran over my own leg on one. Don't put your foot down when riding a three-wheeler, folks!

I still own a 1984 ATC200X, but don't tell anyone as it might ruin my street-cred as a 30+ motocross squid.
Probably over 10 years since I rode one.

The 1980's were truly the golden age for ATV's. I have several three wheelers. I am always on the hunt for nice, original machines. turned this one up a short time ago: 1984, all original, including tires. all I did was clean it Photo

That is one of the baddest bikes Honda has ever produce. Still to this day, when someons says 250R, i dont think of a dirtbike.

I had the Tecates. In both the three and four wheel flavor. To this day, the final year Kawasaki Tecates were the best looking 3 and 4 wheelers ever produced. 1988 was the final year for the quad and I think 1987 was the last Kawi 3 wheeler.

They are awesome, we have an ATC 70
at home and I’m always on the look out for a 250 ATC Honda, a Yamaha Tri-z or a Kawasaki Tecate... great thread...

Good read, Thanks Tony!

Great thread. Wish I would have scooped up 100 of them about 15 years ago.

I bought a brand new '84, had it shipped to Guantanamo Bay and made a daily driver out of it! Photo

ATV history is littered with cool machines. The 200 2 strokes seemed so exotic, and I believe Honda had a factory effort for a short time. Tiger made some really cool machines back in the 80's.

I remember seeing a brand new 86 tecate 250 when i was 8 years old and I wanted it so bad. Was the best looking trike at the time to me. Then a year later remember just being blown away by the new Yamaha banshee.

All these Vitards coming out of the 3 wheel closet.

I really enjoy my 350X. I picked it up for $1300. I actually won the three wheeler four stroke class at the Elsinore Grand Prix on it last year. My next project is going to be a wr450 three wheeler conversion. Yes I know I am a dumb hillbilly.

I recently acquired 5-6 old ATV news from1985 and forgot about the really cool 250 machines described. John Neary was riding a super trick KTM 250 3 wheeler back then.

Things are retarded. I'll take a gen2 Lt250r all day long.

The 250 Quadracer erased the 3wheeler. And the world was a better place. People here that love to shit on Suzuki, forget or have no idea that in one swoop Suzuki eliminated a whole portfolio for the other Japanese OEMs.

Hey, we rode 3 wheelers not quads! No shame in that.
