1994 Honda 300 4 x 4
I am looking at this quad to buy.
It is in great shape except for the seat. It has a warn winch. It has the warn 4-2-4 on it.
It is 18 years old and parts may be hard to come by. I am concerned about the snorkel (where has it been?) and the 26" tires. Those seem pretty big for a 300 and I'm concerned the tranny has been overworked turning those tires.
The reason I want it is because I want to move into a 4wd. I have a Recon now that I love but I get into some situations where I need 4wd or I end up being pulled out by my friends.
The guy wanted $2500, which is WAYYY outta line IMO. He is now down to $2000 but IMO this is still too high. I'm thinking $1500 max. What do you guys think?
More info: I have been looking for a 4wd for some time now and would like to stay under $3,000. I know this means I'd have to buy an older quad, which I don't have a problem with as long as it's a good one that has been taken care of. OTOH, maybe I should just suck it up and buy a newer Rancher. It's not like I DON'T have the money. It's more that I just don't want to spend it on a toy that I only use 3 or 4 times a year.
