Hello JR01SS, welcome to the site.
Greetings, everyone! Found the site recently and have lurked while I searched about trying to round up some information on what I've got (a 1972 Attex Wild Wolf is my best guess from the FAQ and the metal gas tank). Anyway, I've taken some pictures of it where it sits and will be starting up a thread on it in the Attex section of the board.
It may take a while for me to get to and make any real progress since I'm currently working towards finishing up my 1985 RZ350 rebuild, but hopefully it won't be too terribly long once I can get it dug out of it's current hiding/storage place!
Those 2 stroke RZ and RD bikes are awesome! I remember the first time I saw one take off and I couldn't believe it. I was at bike night at the Vortex in Atlanta, Georgia and I was in awe seeing that go down the road with a ring, ting, ting, brap, brap, brap sound.
Anyways, that Attex you have looks like it has lots of potential. It certainly looks to be a 1972, but it's most likely a ST/295, not a 295 Wild Wolf. The Wild Wolf has a 4 chain frame, the body curved down on the inside of the tub a little more than the ST style that was riveted flat against the lower tub. Also the 1971 & 1972 ST style Attexes didn't have the removable front nose piece between the headlights, that wasn't started until 1973.
"Looks like you have a problem with your 4 wheeler........you're missin' two wheels there"
Yeah, I love the old RZ- it's a blast when it's running right. Unfortunately, the ethanol laced fuel got the best of it when it was in storage and I've been having one heck of a time getting the mess cleaned out of the carbs & tank on it to get it back on the road again.
It does look like the seam around the tub is flat all around where the two halves meet. I guess I didn't see anything about an ST295 in the ID guide, so I assumed that it had to be the WW. I'm glad that you feel it's got potential, as it sure looks pretty pitiful to me. It has always had the brown paint on it, so I have no idea how it looks underneath that... everything I've seen here indicates it was the same color yellow all over before the paint job.

Just wanted to say hello. I'm really having fun with this thing, a 2004 in great condition. I'm also enjoying all the info in the forums here. Thanks in advance for the info I will be finding here!
mattr, welcome to the site.
I am a new member. I have always been interested in 6x6, since my uncle had a dealership in the 70's. I remember him taking me for
test rides and they were pretty awesome to a young teen. I have played with regular atv's and Jeeps since then, but would like to get
back into it. I'm certainly willing to construct my own at some point, if I had good enough plans for a starting point.
hello new member here lurking for a while just bought a $500 , 6by6 Argo needs some work i have had jeeps and dual sport motorcycle all my life first Argo plan on using it for hunting and fishing if i ever get it going .
