Well I did it again

I ended up with a junky old dodge Dakota and ended up swapping it for a 2002 Honda recon 250ES. Bike runs perfectly, shifts great, brakes work amazing and it drives good.
Thinking about building it but not sure if I want to or not. It has some decent tires on it and I doubt it would have the power to pull a 27-30 mud tire and it would need a crazy stretch before it would clear them anyway. Don't really much way to lift the bike either. Haven't decided on a plan. What you guys think?

    Thanks. The ole truck was only worth about 800 and I had 500 in it. I only had the truck for less than 24 hours. Picked it up late yesterday evening and swapped it about 1 today haha

    Put you some cree LEDs on it and maybe paint the lugs orange and do like a black and orange pattern on the racks. Just to give you a little pop. Get you some Rebel Redneck orange decals made to go down the front fender flares.

    That would definitely look sexy. I could have the rack powder coated. I was already thinking some led bulbs or some flush mounts. Maybe throw a 1500 lb winch on it

    Definitely be picking up a winch in a few days and I'll probably pick up a small light bar to out on the handle bars and tie it into the High beams or a toggle switch one.

    Ok yea. What I did was I put my headlights on the low beam switch and put a relay on the high beam switch that turn the headlights and the light bar on together.

    Yep change the tires, put some LEDs, paint rims and racks and make you custom decals and maybe get the seat rewrapped. Like I said I'd keep it stock and just dress it up.

    Out of bordem I put some 25x10 big horns on the recon. Even completely deflated with footwheel pulled forward bar pulled forward and everything in the front tucked or moved they rubbed all the way around and would require no fenders to clear. And then didn't have enough power to turn them. Back to the stocks and she runs great again. Also I gps topspeed today at 45 mph on a flat road with no wind. Which isn't bad for that bike
