This is a scratch built, hand made custom 1/4 scale honda TRX 250R that belongs to a friend of mine (Kevin). I just had to build a showroom for it. As i am in negotiations to purchase it. It is an amazing piece of work. With over 500 hours of build time invested. And it is built so much like the real one. costing as much too. :( Negotiations Are Over! Its mine. Now, I just got to remember were I barried that money

Very cool machine! does it run well?

I have seen it run. But he wasn't running it very hard. If I am lucky enough to talk him out of this machine. It will get a strip down for polish and paint. Then it will be retired to a shelf. I am a big lover of one off custom machines.

Been loving the Gravedigger build on youtube, instantly recognised this! Can't wait to see the GD up and running, have you seen it?!

I have seen the 1/4 scale digger. It is an amazing creation as well. Kevin is truly a master. Here is one of his video's of this quad running around in the grass. The quad comes into veiw at 4:10 into the video. [Click here]

Very nice bit of kit, Quality workmanship. Looks like the builder of this has same addiction as me! I want to make smaller replicas of everything lol. I am working on my most ambitious project yet this year

Your friend does some amazing work. Love those 1/25 monsters, too. His Grave Digger has come a long way since the last time I saw it, is that also a future purchase? Nice quad too!

Burner, I would have to seriously cut back on groceries just to purchase the quad. The digger is way out of my price range and so is the storage space.

Great engineering I like it. Don't you just love that phrase 'Negotiation to purchase'... I've used that alot of the years. If your selling its the best thing since slice bread, if your buying it's the biggest pile of pants LOL! Hope you get it brother slimmy

Thats funny king, negotiations to purchase, lol Thats about the size of it tamkyo-he made his own form and does his own vacuum forming. I can get spare bodies in either lexan or styrene for 40.00 USD a piece. I am going to order one of each just to have handy. I got a whole tub of discontinued favorates.

That's a beautiful piece of work - rider lets it down though, he looks like a GI Joe/Action man ..which would be 1/6 right?

slimmy

9-Jun-2010

Zero, you are right about the rider. he does look to small for the quad. I got a pro-line stunt steve that would be much more scale. Personally I like the quad without a rider on it.

slimmy

9-Jun-2010

Thanks Kaotic, I love your enthusiasm

Me too - incidentally isn't an ATC250R a trike?

slimmy

9-Jun-2010

You are correct again zero! Its acually TRX 250R Or fourtrax 250R. I'll go change that.

slimmy

9-Jun-2010

jeffy

9-Jun-2010

Well everone, negotiations are over and It is now mine! Now, as soon as i get it. It will be getting a frame off restoration and then shelved. Before the tear down I will be giving it a good test thrashing. I will make sure and get it on video since this will be the last time its driven.

slimmy

9-Jun-2010

Jeffy guess what? I got it for 60 bucks a big mac a chocolate shake and a small fry.
