    BONJOUR from FRANCE

    Hello everyone, from France and thank you all for bringing this 3-wheel community to life.

    We don't have anything similar in France or in Europe.
    Many of you can't imagine how lucky you are on the other side of the Atlantic bay.

    I apologize if the words are not perfect, I use translator to check before posting.

    I will seek to understand how to publish the pictures of my 1986 Honda ATC 250es Big Red ...

    I wish you happy new year 2022, be careful for you and your families, god bless and protect you.

    Best regards,

    Jm ARK

    Hi Jason,

    I saved this 1986 Honda ATC 250es Big Red from ruin in 1992, from the hands of a farmer in my region.
    The rear frame was broken, the 2 front fork tubes were bent, luckily the body was not broken, just a few scratches butwas very poor condition due to aggression from agricultural treatment products

    At time I had re-welded the frame and just painted the plastics "camo" and used it discreetly to ride and hunt.

    A few years later, I was lucky to find on Ebay Germany: 2 OEM front fork tubes + 1 complete OEM left front fork strut + 1 OEM front brake pads
    I disassembled and rebuilt the front fork, extract and replace bush guides inside the fork tubes, replace fork gaskets, replace fork oil, replace fork tube guards and ... Savor fun riding this ATC with real front fork shock absorber rebound !

    Thanks for welcoming Jason,

    I saved it in 1992 from a farmer in my area ... rear frame buckle broken, front fork tubes bent.
    Fortunately the body was not broken, but the plastics were "burned" by the use of agricultural products.

    At the time I had just re-welded the frame and spray painted "camo" the body, while waiting to find the parts to repair the front fork.

    I will give a presentation of my Big Red, here is when I saved him in 1992 :
