That started off as a $200 yard ornament with 4" of pine needles and pine sap on it. The original plastics were too far gone to save, but the rest of it looked solid enough to make it a builder.   Shade did an amazing job on it!

If I'd have known you'd be selling a mint 300, I'd have held off on restoring the one I bought 🤣

 

Jokes aside, that bike looks brand new! Well done you on restoring it to that condition

I'd say it is worth what your asking , wait it out ------------  I think if you were to list it on facebook on the market place sites , you would get 100s of calls and or messages , but 85 out of 100 you wouldn't want , as they have a lot of chew'kees on there

I don't have any spare side covers left, but I do have a ton of parts.  I was building a 350 for my wife, but today I found a cheap 300 and jumped on it.  Now I just want all the spare 350 stuff out of my garage.  I'll be spending the weekend stripping down a 87 and 86 to list parts on Ebay.  Let me know what you may want.

!, I sold that 300 I picked up last fall in less than 24 hours a few weeks back for $1500. Made $650 on that deal.  Have you listed it on the marketplace and the Honda 300 facebook group? Those guys pay stupid money for mint 300's. I'm currently liquidating all but my bike (350) and one 350 project I've had on the back burner for awhile.

I took the liberty of posting a link to your facebook ad to the Arkansas ATV Trader page on bookface.  Spring is coming.  That will bring out the buyers.

I don't blame you.  They can go buy a new Recon for around $4K, which would be 2wd and not nearly as reliable as that 300, or they can buy a new 300 for $2500.  No brainer.

I felt $1500 for the 300 I had was a fair price.  I probably could have got more but I was happy with what I got and how quickly it sold.  The guy who sold it to me for $800 gave it away.  All I did was change the oil/filter and spend $75 on a new side cover, oem decal and a used heel guard .I kept the tool kit to put in my 350D.  I sold my jon boat and motor Sunday in under 5 hours.  Probably could have got more for it too, but I was motivated. The cash from those sales helped me purchase an awesome boat this evening.  Going to be a great summer on the local rivers w/ my new jet drive on a 1856 Blazzer SS!

I'll create a post in the general forum to post pics so I don't hijack Shade's thread any more than I already have.
