    ha ha yeah they not speed machines by any means but you cant kill them, the cylinder still had hone marks after 19 years! we really sent that thing up places we shouldnt have but more than often it suprises...the front suspension was poked so we fitted new shocks and bushes etc

    i bought mine for 50 bucks, put 14 inch truck wheels and 205/75R14 mud/snow tires on the back and put 2 3/4 inch exhaust from the side of the engine to out the back end, relocated battery to the front rack and upgraded sizes a little to run my lights, added a lawn mower seat to the rear rack to carry an extra person comfortably and i also welded on a suicide shifter with dice shifter I:I....top speed in 4th gear is 57mph, 5th gear really flies!! one of my military buddies has a 550 honda 4wd and he said mine had no guts until i left him sitting...he could only to 56mph :lol

    Just a few things... the first moto is clean good job restoring a classic blaner!

    The second moto is a cobbled mess and would be better off being parted out and put to good use.

    What kind of honda 4wd is a 550cc? 56mph sounds like a 500 foreman or rubicon, the 650/680 rincon will go about 65mph

    57 mph??? Maybe down a very long hill. With them big heavy tires and all that other stuff on it, I bet you can only do about 30 tops.

    the engine is loose and wore out so it revs easy, the tires dont weigh alot because they are just 3 ply car/truck tires, it changed the ratios alot by going from a little wheeler tire to 14 inch truck wheel
