Rambler Not Purchased!

The lowly Honda in its natural habitat. Hooptyrides readers will be stunned to learn I did not buy the Rambler station wagon seen in the background. The prior owners were selling all the toys of their previously vibrant life. The Honda, Kawasaki, the boat, this terrifically awful and unrelentingly nerdy Rambler and the sand rail in the garage. Naturally, I asked if they happened to have any wheels for the sand rail, as I had visions of Hallibrand spindle mounts, but they had already been snatched by the nephew.

When I was a young man in junior high school, a Honda 250 SX ATC three-wheeler like this was the absolute zenith of desire. Now, for a few dollars and some elbow grease, you can be the complete person you have always wanted to be. Check out the excellent for the full gorey details and especially check out the scanned manual for this very motorbike.
