    Love my job somedays.

    This is what the boss brought in for me to work on today.



    He wanted a quick and dirty set of floorboards made for it. That just left more time for the "testing" runs.



    I am pretty sure if you own a 250r, a Kawasaki H1, a Hayabusa, and a Quadzilla and one of those 4 machines doesn't kill you...you are invincible.
    If you cant fix it with a hammer, it must be an electrical problem.

    What? He doesn't like bouncing off the foot pegs and jamming your leg under the tires?

    I've ridden my share of them back in the day.

    The "Big Red" was a gentle giant compared to its psychotic brother the 250R. I've personally witnessed several people break necessary limbs ripping that 3 wheeler around.

    Found this on ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/1981-HONDA-2...sories&vxp=mtr

    Can't see it being too hard to find. Most of those parts were interchangeable on the models back then.

    They are scary machines. A guy I grew up with actually ran a 13 sec. 1/4 mile at the race track in Atco, New Jersey. It was pretty trick for the time, but nothing elaborate.

    Reminds me of that joke about scooters, fat chicks and your friends catching you.
    A lot of people had their last ride on a "Big Red".
    Lincoln AC225 & MigPak 140, Lincoln Magnum SpoolGun, Miller Spectrum 375-X Plasma, Syncrowave 200 TIG, Millermatic 252 MIG, Miller Digital Elite, General 7x12" horiz/vert bandsaw, 3' box/pan brake, 20 ton press, milling machine, 12x28 lathe, etc.
