yeah but what is it? He says 87 in the title and at end of description he says the frame is an 86 with a new coat of paint on it. Was the paint made in 1987 ergo the frame is now an 87 model? lol I thought 87's had their own 1987 frames. But it could still be a good T-3 with some TLC. OK a lot of TLC :D

Could be a late 86, which would make it an early 87. I kinda think that the price is a little steep considering that it comes in a couple milk crates...........

From being in the middle of a 250R restore and tecate restore and trying to by miscellaneous tecate parts from the dealers and seeing limited supplies on ebay I say the 86 & 87 Tecates in 10 -15 years will be the tigers of today (Not that rare but close). Rebuilding an R is a cake walk compared to the T3. Think about it you cant even buy aftermarket stuff for the tecate . So for people who plan on being in this for awhile and like to plan ahead Its not a bad deal. It goes back to my saying "Those who call you a fool for what you pay today will call you a hero in 10 years." A believe me as long as were all around 3 wheelin will never die!!!

Yeah I guess thats true, Being on here and seeing how many people have them kinda makes me forget about how rare it really is.
