Project Polaris CYCLONE
Ok so this is what I got on a straight up trade for my old roof rack. I'm not the type to just get something like this running and leave it looking like crap and having other issues. So because I'm not that type I'll be tearing this down to the frame and rebuilding everything that isn't in good shape until it looks like a completely new quad and runs like one too.

It's a 1987 Polaris CYCLONE 250X

This is a long term project so who knows when I'll get started on it. I need to focus in doing my SAS in my Pathfinder before I throw any money at this. However I will be going through it over the next few days to try and get an idea of what all needs some attention.

RE: Project Trail Boss
I have an extra quart of black Monstaliner. I think I'm going to see if it will stick to the plastics. As of right now I think I'm going with a Orange on Black colors scheme. I might extend the trailing arm 2 inches too. I'm going to go for a sport work horse look. We'll see if I can pull it off without it looking like complete shit.

RE: Project Trail Boss
It runs! Sound's like shit but it runs. I drove it down my driveway lol. It needs allot of work but it's nice to know that I don't need an engine. Just need to rebuild this one.

RE: Project Polaris CYCLONE
So after searching and searching for more information about this quad I realized that the guy that traded me didn't know what he had. This is a 1987 Polaris CYCLONE not a Trail Boss. It's basically a hopped up trail boss.

Ok now that I'm 100% sure what it is. Now it's time to find out and make a list of everything that need to be fixed or replaced.

Oh and it looks like it's fairly rare. They only made it for one year. Hope that's a good thing when it comes to value and not a bad thing when it comes to parts.

P.S. I edited my original post and put in the proper information.

RE: Project Polaris CYCLONE
Removed all the plastics so I could get a better look at what I'm dealing with. If you care to hear me ramble on about what I see needs to be done then watch the video lol.
