    New guy from TN

    My name is Gabriel, I'm 41. I grew up riding 3 wheelers and just now got back into them.
    I'm rebuilding a '83 ATC 200 at the moment.

    Glad to be here, thanks in advance for all the help.

    I will post some pics soon.

    Outlaw, there is no letter on this model. It's an ATC 200.
    I have another one that's an ATC 200E but this one has no letter on the data tag.



    I bought three ATC's and a old fourtrax frame (for the rear end parts) two BIG tubs of parts, an extra set of (cracked) fenders, Two extra parts motors, two gas tanks and several NOS parts all for $800. I feel like I stole it.

    The 200E Big red runs perfect and only needs little things here and there. The ATC 200 I am working on ran but needed an overhaul BAD. The third is a shaft drive 'something'. Over half of it is missing.

    Your shaft drive ATC would be one of the three following. A 1984 ATC200ES, an ATC250SX, or an ATC250ES. These were the only shaft driven Hondas. The 200ES would have an engine that looks similar to the other 200s that you have. The 250s have an entirely different engine. Assuming that no one changed tires sizes, the SX has 22x11-8 tires while the ES has 25x12-9. this could help you determine which model that you have. Also, the 200ES only has front suspension while both of the 250 models have full suspension. The 250s were made in 1985, 1986, and 1987.

    Good to know. I don't think I will ever fix it though. There's just too much missing. I do have two shaft drive engines though. The frame will likely get cannibalized for parts to fix the one I am currently working on. I find myself with no seat and the parts frame had a nice seat. Only...they don't swap. Hmm, chop, cut, weld, grind smooth and paint....It'll fit.

    I would have LOVED to have been able to fix the shaft drive frame. THere's so much missing and so much damage...anything is possible but not for me. It does beg the question, what to do with all the shaft drive parts that won't interchange with my two chain drive models. Get these two done I MIGHT just have to start shopping for a more complete shaft drive atc that needs attention.

    I've seen some decent deals on Honda 3 wheelers down around Jackson in the last few years. Never could justify the drive though.

    Well, told a lie!!!
    Kinda happy 'bout it too.

    With the help of a good neighbor who's a far sight better fabricator than me, we've managed to get this frame safe and usable! 200ES build is on!!!

    Still much missing but i've got the major components. ...Now if I could just find the dam fork bridge I been searching for.......

    Glad to hear that another trike won't be scrapped.
