What is this Odyssey I just bought?
« on: March 04, 2013, 02:48:22 PM »
So... What did I just buy? lol. She's not much to look at but it starts right up and drives fine. Steering is good, brakes are great, could be faster but probably just needs adjusted. I know nothing about Odysses so this might be a dumb question.

As far as I can tell the 400 "Pilot" Odyssey is supposed to be a single cylinder, is mine a single cylinder with twin spark plugs or a twin cylinder? If it's a twin then what is the machine itself called? Any idea what year it is? And did these come with titles?

Also, what is this thing worth right now?

Thanks!
Joe

It's a 250 that someone put a snowmobile engine in.

Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

The seller said something about it being a 440cc but he really knew very little about anything mechanical so I wrote it off, maybe he did know that.

Is the "Odyssey 400" sheet metal handmade or stolen off of a real 400?

Any idea on the value of this machine?

Thanks again!

It's an FL250 odyssey. It's worth $4-500. Nothing on that machine is off an fl400 pilot. It would've been worth more with a stock engine. It's missing all the fenders. Hope you didn't pay anywhere near pilot price for it. The 250's were made from 78 to 84, no rear suspension, parts are dirt cheap. the FL350 odyssey was made in 1985 only. they had 4 wheel independent suspension, reverse, big upgrade from a 250. Then in 1989-90 the made the Honda FL400 pilot. better suspension all around, liquid cooled 400cc. basically they corrected all the issues the 350 had with the pilot. far superior machine to the 350. theyre expensive though. This is a honda pilot.

You wouldn't want to sell it would you?
