    Found Another 88'

    Gday all,

    Was browsing an australian dune riders forum which is usually quite dead with only like 1 post per month and i came across an interesting post on a bloke looking for 250es parts for his 88.
    I thought it was surely a mistake. I left a reply for him anyway saying email me and i will give him some info on parts etc.
    I really wasnt expecting a reply but today i looked at my email and he had emailed me with some info onhis rig like where he got it etc and he also sent me a heap of pics which i will attatch.
    He picked it up for 300 dollars. What a steal! I steered him towards the forums and hopefully he will come on and be a new aussie member. Im sure he wont mind me posting up a few pics of his rig. I just wanted to share this all with you all. At least we know there are 2 88's in the world. Oh yeah notice it is a "superred" too???

    I must say that im a fan of the 88 bigreds!!!!

    Enjoy,

    Matt

    Im thinking our best luck of ever finding an 87 r is either here in aus or over in uk. Seems like they put all the later trikes onto us.

    And the search continues....

    G'day All

    Yep, I'm the bloke that ATCMatt was referring to - another one from sunny Australia. To be honest folks, I didnt know much about the trike when I bought it (I have not been on one for 20 years !) I just wanted it to use on my property for carrying stuff. As you may have seen, its in real need of some work, but for $300 Australian (thats like $85 bucks US), its runs ok. Seeing that it is such a "collectors item" it might give me bargaining power with "the boss" (aka wife) to spend some coin on it !
    Will keep you all posted on progression.
    Rgds, Malrider

    Hello malrider, great to see another True Blue Aussie on site and you to see you picked up the invite to come aboard to this great site from DETECTIVE ATC MATT ( I am sure his saying is track them down and bring them in!) As I said in the e-mail at Newcastle Dune Riders @ www.ezboard.com that is one rare 250es, I am sure the japs must of hit the panick button and just started shipping there surplus gear any where they could to off load stock (England as nipper has pointed out). I also collect Chrysler gear and some times I find it in South Africa, have tried to track down Atc gear there but with no luck....so some one else may have a lead into there! Regards Fester

    '88 250ES, Excellent Find

    Dear Matt,

    As a long time rider of ATC's, I have joined the quest for the lost '87 250R & 350X. After searching Canada, UK & South America I have unfortunately drawn a blank.
    I currently own what I think is the only 350X (never seen another) in Australia. The bike was imported from California in '90 & a year later I bought it. I recently had it in the shop and had quite a few questions from the personnel in workshop.

    There is community of ATC/ATV owners (over 150) on this island of the Queensland coast.
    If you get a chance, check it out; www.moretonventure.com (home to the worlds largest sand dunes)

    It's an awesome ride.....

    Keep up that great work.

    NXP.
