So a friend of mine has been a 3-wheeler, or trike, enthusiast for a few years now. A couple months ago, he found the aforementioned trike on Craigslist for $150. It ran alright for awhile, then died and was locked up in gear, and all sorts of other problems. He bought another one (250, electric start, front and rear suspension) that actually ran, and told me I could have this one if I could get it running.

To make a long story short, the previous owners put a high compression piston in it and messed it up badly. The rings were cracked and blown apart, and the connecting rod was scored so badly where the pin slides in, that the piston barely moved. (It's supposed to slide freely). Luckily, the inside of the cylinder was still in good shape. I don't know how.

So my dad and I tore the whole thing apart, got a new clutch, new piston, new rings, new valve seals, new connecting rod and crank. The thing runs great now. Can't wait for the break in process to be done.

Oh, and sorry about the "product placement". I just opened it before I took the pic.






Also, I have a good amount of experience riding trikes. Yes, they're dangerous, but like anything, when you know the machine's limits and don't do stupid things, they can be a lot of fun. The thing beats you to hell, but I love it.

Side note- It seems I always end up with this machines of yesteryear. 1970-something Honda SL-70 for example. That thing is getting rebuilt soon as well.

dude let some air out of those tires... No wonder its beating you to death...
 
I run about 2 psi in my warrior... WAY smoother ride.
 
I used to race 3 wheelers back in the 80's very fun leaning way over to keep 'em from flipping over.
They tremble at my name...

No way... that rear tire in your pic has way more than 3 psi...
 
You can tell because it isn't slouching at all. It is sitting up on the center treads... Meaning it has at least 10 psi... which equals bumpyitybump on the trails.

Here is mine.
 
 
I just replaced the stator, ignition coil, and bored out the engine to about 373cc's. It is very fast.

Old pic is old? It's been at 3 for awhile, after I realized that it was overfilled.
