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


Have any of you north american guys got a owners manual you could em, email me?

I need a wiring diagram desperately.

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 had one for awhile. They ride they a nimble four wheeler, not so good in the mud, great in the snow.
Here's a couple vids I made of mine. It was a very cold day out.

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.

Cool bike, why the two cables on the right side of the swingarm?

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
