The ATC 450R was an air-cooled 2-stroke.
Was the 450r a 2 or 4 stroke?

My goal as one of the "overseers" of 3WW is to help prevent the misconception about threewheelers to people, and to turn the "Them things will kill you" mentality into "Hey, them things are pretty cool" attitude among the general public and modern day off-road enthusiasts alike. I believe (Or would like to hope) that everyone who is here knows that the way the CPSC layed down the law and let the down was done with inaccurate information, biased testimony, and made with haste without first viewing all the facts or the overall picture. But I'm more or less preaching to the choir here.
Anyways, Extremely pleased and honored to have you among us and look forward to seeing your posts here on the forum in the future.
One can only beat their head up against the wall so often before they get blood in their eyes.
Note to members: Stupidity is a BANABLE offense, mods can decide if YOU are being stupid and WILL ban you!
Now to find out where all those 87 250r's went.
Guess the boat never made it to europe.
Will have a quick look round on the way home tonight.
I sent you a PM can you check it out.
No- Point in standing around and just watching! Get out and ride!
I'm going to read some of my back issues right now. Just to reminisce about the old days of 3-Wheelers. Welcome to the board and the information from the ole days is awesome!!!!
1985 ATC350X (Original owner for 21 years and counting!)
1986 ATC500R W.I.P.
WOW!! Finally someone who was truly involved !!
Hmmm - where you doing a google search and found us??!!
Regardless you can't even begin to imagine how excited some of us are to hear from someone who actually had a role in this sport.
I truly wonder how many people out there could leave us with our jaws hanging open in just one post.
Yep, lots of us can swap forks and calipers but we really don't know squat about what really happened, why and where all the goodies went.
Welcome and thanks for the post!!!!!!!!!!!!
Welcome to the site Dean
I remeber back in the day I never liked the trikes as I was a dirt bike nut,
then my friend Art (who I cant track down today) had a little 110 that I rode also a two stroke tri moto 125 I think? I did like to ride them but still really didnt like them and old Art kept on harpin about how he liked to work on them and how easier to work on they were ??? I couldent see it untill I went to buy a 4 wheeler.
Now I have a 350X, 200X, 250SX, ytm 200. and now constantly think of back in the day im 36 now and all the stuff I didnt like in the 80s I love today .I am by far not an ace mechanic nor an expert on A.T.C.s or any other trike I will read your posts religeously. Thanks for joining the site,Im
sure you will bring irreplaceable knowlege to the site and its members.

When did the CPSC and everyone jump in and finally stop production?
It's really a horrible thing what happened with trikes, i wish they still made them...
1983 Honda ATC110 unrestored, running strong, ride it nearly every day.
1981 Honda ATC110 currently undergoing full restoration process
If it is alright with you guys, I would rather not dwell on the CPSC and what happened "outside" the ATC riding world. It turns my stomach when I think about those times, and I rather talk about all the thousands of hours we rode and tested ATCs and never, ever, got hurt.
