That Yota was an 87 with an 03 glass kit. I took it from lowered to that. I have a buddy that had a fab shop and parts were cheap so I built it. I ended up selling it cheap for $6500. I saw it for sale a year later by the guy who bought it for $14,000.

I am cheap. and have a jeep when it is not being re built. I have been up in the air about a 4x4 quad but I really only quad hunt twice a year anyway. I bought that polaris a year old for 300 bucks from a neighbor, he let his kid borrow it and he drove it into a pond and drug it out and parked it for six months. Needless to say most of the motor was shot and corroded. I rebuilt it and it has been a good quad since.

On the cheap part I only pay cash for toys and I look for deals, never pay full price.

I grew up riding dirt and street bikes, but moved into quads after some really bad crashes.
I sold my Honda TRX450R a while back, but still have the Honda Rancher 4X4 quad.
Here's me on the 450 at Ocotillo Wells and Betsy (same place) on the Rancher....

I've got boatloads of them

My buddy jumping my other buddy:




^He's still kind of learning how to ride.




^Me on one of those 4 wheeled contraptions.

I have no idea why my buddy with the 350X thinks it's better to land with the nose WAY in the air, but he does it time and time again. And I mean WAY in the air, not a slightly nose up attitude.

I was always told 3 wheelers were real easy to roll. Is that true?

Not at all. Not anymore-so than a 4 wheeler. That would have been media BS that said "3 wheelers are dangerous" and the reason for the notorious-ness behind them and ridiculous accusations like "easy to roll" or "unstable in corners".

Never banned, only voluntarily stopped ;)

I've only ridden a traditional quad twice. We have a side by side at work that is super handy. One of those "How did we do without this?" type things... :D

^Depends on what you are going to do. If you use the dunes a lot i'd keep the rail. Rails are ALWAYS a lot smoother than side by sides or quads.

Over the last few years I have been doing a lot more hunting and trail riding then using the rail, infact the rail hasn't seen dirt in three or so years. I take it out twice a year and do wheelies up and down the road and then park it.

What's the asking price?

Just got a new rear master cyl for my Tecate. Oh how awesome is it to be able to stop on a dime again :) :D :p
