    "Brand New" 1986 XR350RG

    Hey guys,

    I just discovered a "brand new" 1986 XR350!

    Never ridden, zero km, stored for 19 years! Started every 3-6 months throughout its life to keep the seals healthy.
    Don't bother asking for more info as it is already sold
    (not to me though ).

    Seems someone here in Oz heard they were being discontinued (in 1986) and thought it would be a good idea to buy one and store it as an investment. Don't know if it was worth it for him as it sold for AU$7500 (approx US$5500).

    In 1986, as a poor university student I remember lusting after these. The XR350 was (then) latest and greatest 4 stroke enduro bike. Sadly there was simply no way I could afford it then. I remember how disappointed I was when I heard they were discontinued. I could never understand why Honda stopped making the 350. The 350 weighed less than all later XR250s but had more power - it was a great bike. 34hp, dry sump, 112kg - it would still be a great trail bike / social enduro bike today.

    I'm not surprised this one sold quickly. What a once in a lifetime opportunity! Wish I had bought it.

    That is unbelievable. I used to have an 84' XL350. I loved that bike. So much torque that I sware it could throw a rooster tail a mile long.... Well, not that far but it sure seemed it when I was 16 years old. It was my first Honda.

    Now that brings back memories. Just needs a Supertrapp.

    Only time I rode with someone that had one of these, he did have the Supertrapp.
