Not the best pictures, but I took my son out riding today so it is kinda dirty.



1986 TRX70 Purchased new by my father in 1986 to be used on our family farm by my nephew (who is now 29!). It go very little use, then spent most of it's life in storage until both of my parents passed on.



I got it, cleaned it up a tad bit and now my 6 year old son rides it!











It has a Clarke plastic tank (the stocker got rusty in storage, and I have a set of Sand Shark paddles for it for when he gets to go to the Dunes :D



He just started riding just last fall . . .

Off topic. I looked at a Nice ATC70 for the kids today. Needless to say, I'll be looking for a TRX70 or TRX90 for the kids as while I feel I'd be fine mobbing around on one, I won't be putting a 7 year old in harm's way on an ATC with little to no riding experience. While I understand bathtubs can also be dangerous, a young kid on a 3 wheeler is asking for trouble.



Just my opinion.



If any of you find a complete 1973-1974 ATC for me, drop me a note as I would be happy to build up one of the K0 or K1's to chase the kids around while riding a TRX.

This is my standard ATC70. My 3 year old son is a huge fan of it. He's a bit young to ride it himself, but he realy likes sitting on the tank while cruisin' through the woods...

The track picture was taken at Daxweekend in Bruges last summer, racing against a Chinese mini quad and a couple of homebuilt trikes. Even though these vehicles aren't made for on the road use, it was huge fun. Especially cutting corners through the grass...

I quite like the ATC the way it is. It's not that fast, but it's nippy and pulls well enough for what it is. The 4-speed semi is just fantastic, and the 6V electrics have never let me down ;)

All it needs to make it complete is a rear grab bar and the rubber clutch cover.



Cheers!

I relented and found a 1985 for $300 but will be installing either an 88 or 108 12V CDI motor into it. I'll turn the limiter down next to nothing for when the kids take it out for a crawl.:D



This will mainly be used in the winter and I want the engine to start without issue in sub zero temps and don't want to worry about engine maintenance.



Dreis - Nice looking trike.
