    This was a US model bike made for 2 years in the 80s. I just imported one to Australia from Cali.

    Not many people have these bikes. Would checking microfiche on www.bikebandit.com help at all?

    Sorry no wiring diagrams...

    But let me ask: How do those things ride? Never seen something alike in Germany.

    I won one of these on "The Price is Right!" in 1988. I came within $3.00 of the MSRP ($1598) and it was delivered a month later after the show aired. I rode it around the front yard and sold it the next day. It was fun but I already had a garage full of ATVs and motorcycles!

    I ran into the guy I sold it to last year and he still had it! He says he rides it in the desert once a week or so.

    Sorry no diagram. Fun little bikes to ride though. Better in the sand than a standard bike for sure.
    Yamaha made one like it called the BW but had 3 different engine sizes for them.
    Too bad they are not street legal.

    I'm in the midst of making it street legal.

    You're probably long gone from this thread, but the extra cable is for the left hand lever if I remember right, they were auto transmissions with manual shifting..no clutch lever.

    You can operate the rear brake with either the left hand lever (auto clutch) OR the brake pedal...kinda cool. Also has a parking brake on the left lever. I had an 87. I used it to play on local trails and took it to the Budds Creek Pro MX National to get around the pits and infield on Friday and Saturdays. I could crawl down steep downhills with the thing. I regret selling the bike. They are rare and hard to come by these days, especially one in good shape. Once you get used to the technique required to ride it, it could go nearly anywhere. You could climb telephone poles with that low first gear. The external valve adjustment system was unique too, no feeler gauges required. The 86 ATC 200X had the same engine with a manual clutch and forward kicker. Enjoy it

    Here is my 86 model Fatcat, I had the only one in Australia until Rob got one from the states, mine was officially imported by Honda with a view to sell them as an ag bike but never went through with it, I bought it off them in the late 90s.

    Just finished fitting a Muskett replica muffler from NZ, excellent product, mine was rusting out.

    I'm sure that cat doesn't have 1 mile. They tend to do that on offroad bikes with no odometer.

    agreed..look at the paint wear on the frame...or it has a enduro style odo like an XR that is resetable but has no Total milage on it so they list it as 1

    That is a badass looking bike.

    Inmate Mrbigwheel has a thread on here with a bunch of big wheel bikes in it. The three wheeler conversion kit for I think the 250 just looked amazing. I'd hit it! :D
