The Honda mix-&-match game.


Kind of shows how every year they were advancing and updating their ATCs. If they had continued to build them until today, imagine what'd be available.

HRD man, no kidding. I think they were approaching perfection very quickly in all designs though. The things sure are fun I love mine:)

Well shoot. I ordered what I believe to be the correct parts from fleabay but they were mistakenly shipped slow boat and will be another week and a half, ugh[frown]
On a side note the question of the correct Unobtainium rear brake drum replacement for my ‘83 200E can be addressed now I guess. I believe if the brake drum cover is integral (a one piece unit) it won’t fit from an ‘82 atc200 or atc200E. From what I’ve gathered pouring over the online parts microfiche’ if it’s an 82-83 atc200 and the drum has a separate drum cover (the tin cover) then the drum will spline on and work on the atc200E of the same description. I cross referenced axle, hub, drum and carrier part numbers, etc and I believe what I purchased from an ‘82 atc200 are what the doctor ordered we will see. The bearings and seals are a slam dunk and are pretty much all identical of that vintage.
I’ll be putting on a new front sprocket, chain and rear sprocket some day but for now I’ll flip the rear sprocket and flip the chain around and get a bit more life out of what I have now to do a thorough run-up and get some chores done. With piles of fun of course:)
I’m not going to put the drive chain case crap back on. I was thinking of drilling a couple 5/16” holes in the bottom of the carrier and the tin drum cover to let any water escape if any gets in there rather than staying in there forever. Plus thoroughly coat the Inside of the carrier with grease... anyone tried this? In a perfectly sealed unit it doesn’t make sense but mine is “not that guy”, lol. Be cool, freeze’

Well a quick update and I’ll post details in a couple weeks but the E is kicking butt agin and running kinda champ with new brakes and bearings all the way around and is dialed in tip top.
The drum from fleabay was dented In 15 places I guess from removal at the cycle salvage down there in ’Merica. I used varying tire iron profiles And my vise to tap things back out to where I could metal finish it from the inside then lite dremel work. Very thin stamped metal. Brakes wouldn’t budge but 5hours or so and rock and roll! Shed a bunch of crap too:)

Third pic was first project on n the job with the big red. I like all my trailer stuff to be one size so I put on a 2” ball but with 1” threads which is what the 1 7/8” og ball had from Honda. Ton of work to do now on my road but I’ll put some things together to share. Be cool, freezerburn
