    I'm interested in this bike. I contacted the seller and he seems OK, but "he's selling it for a friend" (in Las Vegas!) and "the bank has the title". Yuck!

    Anyway, I'm in St. pete so looking for some help, and I just posted this in the Pensacola area riders forum...

    Streak, if the bank that has the title is not local to Pensacola I would be leery, VERY leery.


    Sorry I am not closer or I would check it out for you.

    But then again if I was close I may be tempted to buy it! :lol3

    Probably worth 2x in parts. Anyone got some storage space in Tallahassee?

    I have for sale, a 1985 Honda XL350r Enduro. I purchased this bike, non running, last year as a project and never got around to finishing it. The chasis has 8600 miles on it and the motor was rebuilt in 2010 by Johns and Sons on Lake Bradford Rd. This bike is street legal and I have a clean title in hand. It would make a great commuter with the ability to hit the trails on the weekend. When I picked the bike up, I confirmed that it has compression in the cylinder. The carbs will need cleaning/lube since it has been sitting. Also, the timing chain is off a tooth or 2 so it will need to be readjusted and possible a new tensionor/guide setup. I suspect the off timing is why it will not run. I do not have time to work on this bike and need it gone. With the bike, I will include a XR350r frame, suspension, seat, handlebars, ect.. 1 set of extra wheels with sproket, and 3 sets of tires (one set is off road bridgestone knobbies), and some varius spare parts. I also have a Clymers manual for the XL and XR series. This bike is worth more than 500$ in parts, but the time it would take to sell/part everything out is not worth it to me. If you have any questions about the bike or want to come see it, email or text me at 727-214-434five.

    I think 1994 was the first year with electric start.

    Went and looked at the DR350 and it's a bit rough.

    • No instrument gluster
    • barb fitting repaired rear brake line
    • U-clamp on exhaust
    • plastic panel burned through from exhaust
    • didn't feel much resistance when kicking motor over, most likely valve issues
    However, it did have a Supertrapp exhaust, front fork brace, and a nice bash plate. I'm going to pass on it so if anyone else goes and looks it's all you.
