In the 80's I'd buy the parked 3-wheel Honda's. Had a couple of 90's. Those always started on first pull and ran forever. The chain idler and tires were the first thing to fail, as folks wouldn't re chain when it wore and over aired the tires and they cracked. Other than that they were great. Always had to remind my kids that they were a machine to keep you from having to walk somewhere, not a Evel Knevil machine.

back in the day after my many mini bikes i had a honda 50 mini trail, and the a mini trail 70, i believe the 50 was red and the 70 was blue.

my sister in law has a mini trail 50 that ran last time we were there, she has no kids and all the nephews are big and could care less about (an old hunk of antiquated garbage) the new mentality.

^ VERY nice, she has 3 -442's just sitting there in N.J. weather. who knows what parts are inside the 3 45' trailer she has there. been working on her ~10 years or so.

he was a mechanic, owned his own place for 7-9 years, the tools alone are a small fortune, getting no where quick, she is 70, good health, but you never know. has about 15 nieces/nephews my wife (sister) has been trying to get her to downsize for ever but no luck.

at one point she was talking about getting someone to just hall trailers away and clean everything up, told her NO,she was even going to pay to have it done. after the holidays i am going to start having the wife push the issue harder.
