The Honda ATC 70 is one of the most cherished three-wheelers around. It’s fun to bounce around the trail or
challenge a friend in a wheelie contest. This particular
ATC isn’t your run-of-the mill OEM machine. The builder
of this ATC dropped an air-cooled Honda CR250 engine
in it. Talk about a wild ride!
WHAT BEAUTIFUL DESIGN YOU HAVE
Jason Smith from Midwest Performance has had his
mud machines featured in the pages of a couple different
Dirt Wheels issues. Smith doesn’t only build lifted mud
slingers, he also creates wood-racing works of art like this
2016 Can-Am Renegade. He installed OMF wheels, GBC
Dirt Commander tires, BNR Motorsports tie-rods, Fasst Co.
Flexx bars, a Cecco Racing steering stem brace and seat
latch. Also included in this build is a Yoshimura exhaust,
The Bom Racing programmer, full-aluminum skid plates
and much more.
Nate Stark is a loyal subscriber of Dirt Wheels
magazine, so this month we’re going to take a look at his
2014 Honda TRX450R, which he calls his baby. It has a
full HMF exhaust, Pro Taper handlebars, Pro Armor nerf
bars and bumper, VGR skid plate, Glann Inovations case
saver and GBC tires. Nate loves riding his 450R at Haspin
Acres in Indiana, and it never goes into the garage dirty.
For next month, maybe we should take a look at your
quad or UTV. We could do that if you send us a good
photo of it, along with some info, your name, city and
state. Email it to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Readers’
Rides” in the subject heading. Thanks.
1988 SUZUKI QUADRACER 250
There’s nothing quite like the feeling of riding a two-stroke quad. It’s a shame they no longer make these
machines, which is why it’s important to keep them in
good shape. Fortunately, there are many companies
specializing in selling hard-to-find parts that are no
longer available from the manufacturer’s dealer. Matt
Kenison made the effort to restore his old two-stroke
quad, and here it is ready for a fun day of riding at
Jericho Mountain ATV Park in New Hampshire.
