Default 1985 Honda 350X

Well, I stopped by a going out of business parts sale this morning and low and behold there she was. 1985 Honda 350X that didnt look abused. Exhaust, air ducts, and top end are off motor. Tank is off and plastic/seat laying loose on it. What's the deal with this? Lady selling it says a couple years ago her husband shut it down after riding it. Next day it kicked over but wouldnt fire. Took the top end off and "there is a burnt valve". Left it sit in the barn. I have always wanted one, so I gave a offer and she took it. I think I did good for $300.00

Anyone know anything about these? Parts still available for them? Is this even fixable? I know the first thing is get a Clymber's or something...

TIA

Awesome bike... I have one as well...(my second one...) and I had a 1988 TRX250R with a built 350X motor in it... You'll love it when you get it together... If you decide the project is too big for you, let me know and I will take it off your hands... I need another project...

I never had any problems finding new parts for my 200x, They were expensive but I could find damn near anything for it.

I'm not positive, but I was told the 350X heads were the same as the TRX350 Foreman 4-wheelers... You also may be able to get the head repaired depending on what was done to it...

Check out www.powroll.com for all kinds of Power!!

Both the warrior and 350x need new rear tires. Was looking at the Kenda Bear Claw. Bike Bandit has them for $63 a piece. Look like a pretty good deal for tire/$$$.

id get a cheaper version of the holeshots or even some dunlop577's. the bear claws to me seem to agressive and heavy. i dont know what kind of riding you guys have out by you though, that could easily sway a tire choice. look up duro tires, there berm raider tires have good reviews in the trike community

yea i agree with mikef the bearclaws are heavier tire. i have had 3 200x and one 350 and love them to death and parts are around as well. but i would suggest for a tire is the spyder trax there hard to find around but they will go through anything and there really easy for the 200x to spin.

I love the old iron!! A good friend of mine just sold his 350X recently (dummy). The 350x is a pretty forgiving, as far as trikes go anyway, lol. Ive got two Tecate-3's that aren't quite so forgiving. Ive never ran the spider trac tires on a trike, but i loved them on my quadracers for all around use.

Enjoy the new ride!!

bullshit honda still makes parts for these as the know there is a huge 3wheeler following out there.

any dealership can get the parts you need. some parts might be pricey though.

for $300 i say thats a sweet deal. i have owned several 250r, several 200x and i really want a 350x.


looks like a great find to me
