    ever just want to sell them all?

    in the last 12 to 18 months I ended up with 4 185s atcs 2 titled, 3 runs and 1 project. I also picked up a nicely dressed 350x. So I was suppose to meet the kids after work to go on a ride. I decided to take a 185 and it since it's been parked for months and it runs lean, have to run the choke half open and popping out the intake. grabbed the other titled 185 and it's running crappy too. the last beater 185 seems to run the best, but no ohv sticker.
    Then I'm thinking why waste my time with the hardtails. why not just keep the 350x and the 70 and get rid of all the 185s trikes, parts, motors etc. And still have 2 trikes and a lot more room.
    I dumped all my 110 atc parts and projects a few years ago. Just have to convince myself this is a good idea. jim

    All the time. I just bought a project 300r. Was going to swap all the goodies to my nice 84, make the 300's chassis stock, then sell it. Now I realize that will take more time than I have right now. So I guess I'll make the 300 nice. I have 5 250rs. Plus 30 or so bikes and other wheelers. Some days I want to sell them all. Some days, I want to sell a few, but I can't decide which. Still have a few more on my want list. It's only money right?

    it's not so much just money, it's the lack of space. jim

    As I get older I'm realizing less is more.

    There's some things I miss that I have sold off but most not.

    If mine were to go, each one would have to leave with all the spare parts for it too. I don't want to take the time to sell all that stuff piece by piece.

    I'm not to that point yet. The 110 could go and I wouldn't care too much. Most of what I have didn't cost me much of anything to acquire over the years, and that's probably what keeps me from getting rid of any of them. I couldn't replace them for what they'd sale for.

    I genuinely like to ride them. Easy to load, easy to maintain, easy on gas, easy to flip back over.

    if I do decide to sell them, it's all going as a single package deal with all the motors, recoil, extra frame, axles etc. just keep the 70 and the 350 and quit looking for other trikes. jim

    I've got 2 chevelles and a camaro so it's not like the trikes are my only hobby, also buy broken pistols and rifles and fix them too. (just bought a 1912 winchester 94 lever rifle to fix) jim

    I sold my 75 ATC90 last month, just time for it to go, i also added two more 200's so i just needed the room. I sold a lot of stuff a few years ago, so now its just the 200E, 200ES, and 200 left, and we ride them so they are staying until i die at this point... LOL

    I had a fleet of 13 that ran at once. It's too much, you never ride them all, one always needs somthing, waste of money trying to prove you have all this crap.

    I sold off all high hp toys got into small stuff. I have more fun with machines thst just take fuel and a spark plug each year. I have 4 machines right now but each one different from the next. I'm over hoarding and constantly trying to find the deals that don't exist anymore due to covid prices.

    Now you guys are sounding jaded. I only have one and want more. (I also have 3 squares, so the trikes need to at least catch up with em) You might miss em next time you want to go for a romp.

    okay, prices seems crazy right now for everything.ive got 2 81 185s atcs with titles. 1 has a 200s motor that needs a tune up, im thinking the pulse generator spring is bad because it was missing and used a pen spring. also have another 185s with a 200s motor, have plastics seat pan etc tanks. also have a 185 project that's missing a seat pan, has compression. also there's a 85 200s frame with front suspension, a few extra gas tanks, pull starts, axles, 4 spare motors etc. I'm thinking maybe shoot for 2000. Not sure I'm going to do it yet. jim

    well, I guess these things aren't that popular here after all. got 2 calls, 1 guy showed up and offered 1500 for the whole lot. Probably should have taken the offer, but trying to find misc small parts and big parts I felt I would kick myself. So maybe just get the 2 titled trikes tuned properly, sell the beater running trike. Keep the parts to get the last 185 running. jim
