Hey Gary, can you locate the vin number ? It should be located in the front lower push bar on the cross brace.  If you can find that number there are a few web sites that decode the vin for free and tell you the year and model of the bike.  The 10th number or letter of the bikes vin# is the year of the bike when cross referenced on the vin decoder.  Do you know the model ?

Ok well take a look for the vin snap a pic and we can help you find out what it is. You will find it where I said it is and clean it up with a wire brush or sandpaper if necessary. Good luck.

Like @Frank Angerano said, a VIN would help but also if you could take a few pics and then we can take a look. I changed your topic title to Help Identify Old Honda 4x4 ATV rather than just patcher, like you had it, so it's more descriptive. 😉

Click reply and below that you willl see an icon that says click to choose files. Select pics and they will upload.  If you can’t figure it out then add the vin # in your post.

Like @Frank Angerano said and you can also copy and paste into a topic. So if you copy an image just click paste and it'll upload. You can also add it to the gallery section and take the URL and copy and paste into a topic.

Lightly sand the  bar  it is stamped into  and you might be  able to  make it  out. On older   Honda 4 wheel  ATVs  it  is  on the   round crossbar in the  front.  Mine was hard to read  ev3n  after sanding the  rust off but I found enough to use a chart of 1991  VINs  to  find  mine  listed.  I was lucky there  was  only one letter unreadable.

This site  has a chart of all the Honda bike  and  quad model  number  and tear  listings.. The   4trax entries  are  way  down the  list.

https://www.motorcyclespareparts.eu/honda-parts/honda-model-prefix.aspx

Your   vin  will  start  with 478TE.  The next  two  or 3  numbers  will  identify  the  model series . The  1988 to 2000 models have  a  150 there. Further on in the  vin there will be  a  letter to identify the year.

The 10th digit in a 17 digit V.I.N. or frame number represents the year of your ATV, motorcycle, or car.

A = 1980  B = 1981 C = 1982  D = 1983  E = 1984  F = 1985  G = 1986  H = 1987
J = 1988   K = 1989  L = 1990  M = 1991  N = 1992  P = 1993  R = 1994  S = 1995
T = 1996  V = 1997  W = 1998  X = 1999  Y

I uncovered a server issue that may have prevented uploads temporarily, so please try again. 😁

I would need to see the front and closer images, but it looks like an older 2000-2002 Honda Recon 250. That's my guess.

I  can't tell you the  model  or exact age,  but it is   definitely 2000 or  newer. Before  2000 they  did not  have  any instrument panel. I would  guess between  2000 and  2003.

I have a 1994 trx300ex. What is the difference between the (trx300ex A) and the (trx300ex AN) and how do I know what mine is? I have the vin and I searched it but it doesn't say "A" or "AN"

That's a question I would like to know also.  In ordering 300FW parts I notice there is an A and an AN.  My assumption is that AN is the Canadian version but I don't know the differences.

      recently picked up some project bikes off CL for cheap.  got a honda fourtrax (the ancient 4x4 kind with the straight axle in the front as well as the rear and a back-up kick-start)  plastics are crap, but my goal is to get running like a champ and patch the plastics up and sell to one of my many friends that want a reliable 4x4 for dirt cheap and doesnt care what it looks like.
      so the former owner says it needs carb rebuilt, but its sat for 3+ years since so who knows.  things I see:  carb is missing (he gave me a box of parts along with the bike), engine turns over and feels good with kick-start, brakes need work, battery missing (That always puts me off, cause then I know most likely someone's been tampering with the electrical.

      I am working on a Honda sportrax I just got my daughter for get birthday and the reverse and neutral light are not working. When I traced the wire down I saw that it wasn't plugged in but I don't see where it is supposed to connect. Does any one have a general idea of where I should look?

      Hey everyone...does anyone know if tie rod sets for a Honda 250 will fit a 125? My son just snapped the tie rod end clear off. We have a 1987 Honda fourtrax 125. Just want to make sure before I order the set off eBay. Thanks
