What It Took To Bring This Honda TRX250R Back To Life

Vintage Motorsports’ latest amazing ride

Nothing turns heads these days more than a good-looking, running and of course great sounding, two stroke, Honda 250R. Among the sea of four strokes on tracks and at local ride areas, they stand out and get attention when they ride by. Over the last decade or so there has been a resurgence of restoring these great machines. We're not sure if people are getting tired of four strokes or are just interested in saving what's left of ATV history. In fact we uncovered one guy on the East Coast who has what we believe is the World's Largest ATV Collection you must see to believe.

This machine is equipped Maire Mfg. bodywork that looks as good as stock.Vintage Motorsports

One shop in South East Massachusetts specializes in helping those of you that want to restore your own piece of history. Whether you just need a few parts to finish up your own project or need them to do a complete restoration on a machine you found in a barn somewhere, Vintage Motorsports can help. Below is a recent build that Mike Palmgren and his team just completed for a guy who was going for the stock Honda 250R look, but still wanted the best performance and ride quality he could get. Vintage Motorsports came up with is what we call an amazing ride. You can contact Mike at (508) 303-5085 or visit www.vintagemotorsports.net.
