86 250r

15 posts in this topic

Yeah, just purchased a 86 atc 250r off ebay. :biggrin: All original. Got it for $1,325. Think it was a real good purchase. It is in my home town, so there is no travel at all to pick it up. Ill pry toss an extended swing arm on her. Other wise no big plans for mods. It has a new top end with an 1 hour on it. :yes:

I would recommend the newest one you can find, the different years aren't that much different. The '85-'86 motors have higher compression, especially the '85. In '87 they began using the long rod. Gearing changed a bit over the years also. All in all, the newer the motor the better as a newer motor will likely be in better condition and be easier to find parts for.

      FOR SALE: $10,800 or best offer.

      Custom built Street Legal Harley Davidson 4 Wheeler . 

      Answer to your first question ...
      YES, you can drive it anywhere.. on highways.. back roads... neighborhoods.. off road... ANYWHERE ITS LEGAL FOR CARS or 4-Wheelers !

      This took a lot of work and effort with many divisions of the transportation dept. and through multiple attorneys advice.

      This is one of only two 4 wheelers that are street legal in the U.S.A. (Excluding Montana, parts of Arizona, and New York).

      Now for the details. 

      Its a 1989 Harley Davidson Frame and Engine.
      The motor is matching numbers to frame and title.
      The motor is 883cc beefed up to 1200cc.

      This bike has too many upgrades to list as you can see in the pictures.

      Please ask questions if needed.

      This bike has been in Dirt Rider Mag and several other places.

      There is more than $20,000 in parts and man hours put into this bike.

      Additional Upgrades I will be starting this month:
      Turn Signal Relay and Dakota Digital Upgraded Speedometer

      This bike has Super Swamper Vampire tires in some pics (THESE ARE NOT STREET LEGAL TIRES) and do not come with bike.

      This bike has STI Black Diamond Tires with black STI3 rims in other pics. (THESE ARE DOT APPROVED TIRES AND ARE STREET LEGAL).

      This bike also has ROAD Street Tires too.... 

      YES 2 SETS OF TIRES !

      All 2 sets of tires and rims are included in price.

      Top speed is around 100mph-140mph. This thing will move. 

      Be the first to own a 4 wheeler on the road and in the woods... 

      Please call 812-305-11 nine six I live in Lexington. KY

      These are some 100% custom graphics and numbers we made for a TRX250R. We have a template for that quad, if anyone knows someone who wants custom graphics for their 250R, let me know.
      We are currently making templates for other quads too.
