Well guys, I did it! The 77 SRX is sold. My vintage dream has become someone else's. I had 5 years to enjoy it. This guy is pumped about it. He has been looking all over for a 77, a mint one,well he found it. Now do I still get to chat on the vintage board,cuz I'm all out of vintage sleds.!!!???

For a 77 SRX, I guess it's called fair market value. He got a perfect sled,original manual w/ race updates.Original carbides,extra gears and a matching 1977 race jacket with helmet BUT WAIT...there's more also includes a rare set of stinger pipes.WOW! what a deal! Ok, now I'll answer your question. $6000.00 How'd I do????

dang....the price keeps rising for the classic race sleds...i have 2 77 srx's, one is a full custom mod american srx, the other is being restored this summer, a 77 stock canadian srx. i have seen ppl get $5000-$5500 for their 77 srx's, but not $6000. you did well!
last summer i seen a 100% stock beautifull 77 srx for sale at haydays. the guy wanted $5000 for it....

Sorry, I made a package deal so I don't have leftovers laying around. I can't believe how hard to find this stuff is getting. 77 SRX jugs I heard are pulling 500-700.00 each???
