Message: Great job on the 250R restoration project. I'm pretty much half done with my machine and I'm hoping to send in some pics of the entire project when I finish it.

Message: I would assume you had no trouble finding 250R restoration parts online. I was able to track down everything I needed to this point. Was there any obsolete Honda ATC parts you had trouble finding? Overall, your trike looks fantastic.

Message: Hello I recently received a 20R ATC, 1982. The front brake will not produce pressure, I took everything apart and cleaned all and put it back together. The piston on the front brake was stuck and now moves, but I don't know what I may need to get the pressure through the line to move the piston. Does this seem to be the master cylinder?

Message: Pictures look good. I'm thinking about restoring an old Honda ATC. I'm at the stage of scoping out restoration candidates. Most likely it will be a 250R.

Message: Hello, I partially restored a 250R back in the late 1980s. It ran like a bear and looked awesome. Three wheelers were going the way of the wooden wheel back then so I dumped it for a Quadracer. Wish I had the 250R back, hindsight is always 20-20.

Message: Cool set of pics, how does the finished restoration run for you? Just about to start my own 250R project.

Message: Completed restoration looks awesome. How does it ride? Like new I would imagine.

Message: This is a great depiction of a restoration on a 250R. I am a former owner of an 83 250R who is in search of a replacement for my former toy. I hope to purchase one soon and begin a similar restoration.

Nice job on the 250R resto!
