Your OWN sled History

Postby 7up Yours » October 1st, 2002, 1:05 am

I started at the age of 4.

1984 season
Sled #1- 1979 Arctic Cat Lynx 2000 "T".
On my Fourth trail Ride I TOTALED it.

Sled #2- 1980 Arctic Cat Jag 3000 F/C
Rode it for Nine Seasons.

Sled #3- 1985 Arctic Cat el Tigre' 6000
One season only. My mom bought it for me for my 13th birthday. It was My Dad's old sled (he died when I was nine.) So it was kind-of weird. Too sentimental. Had to sell it.

Sled #4- 1990 Arctic Cat el Tigre' EXT
Had alot of fun on this one. Was once owned by someone on the AC Board of directors.

Sled #5- 1986 Arctic Cat el Tigre' 6000.
Never Rode it. Bought it from a guy who said "all it needs was a new Piston, and re-sleeve the cylinder". When I tore the engine down the only salvagable items were the bottom half of the crankcase, and the flywheel. He had managed to sell me a major POS, which was scraped.

Sled #6 1987 Arctic Cat el Tigre' 5000.
Had it for five years. Wasen't bad, but it was slow.

Sled #7 1998 Arctic Cat ZR 440 Sno-Pro.
CMCCR Semi-Pro points leading champ sled. FAST. I miss it.

Sled #8 1988 Arctic Cat Wildcat.
Needed a spare, and for $500 I thought it would do.

2002 season - through now
Sled #9 2001 Arctic Cat ZR 440 Sno-Pro.
CMCCR pro point leading champ sled. Although he used another sled for most of the season to get there. It has been well Cared for.

Sled #10(Misc.) 1976 Arctic Cat Panther.

Sled #11(Misc.) 1974 Arctic Cat Panther.

Sled #12(Misc.) 1978 Yamaha SX- Mod

Sled #13(Misc.) 1980 Arctic Cat Pantera

I bought or accuired all of these Misc sleds to fix and sell.

Your OWN sled History

Postby kawicat » October 1st, 2002, 4:28 am

i will list everything my immediate family has had or has. the server would explode if i listed everything my whole family has owned and driven.

79 jag 340 fan (still around)
(mine)80 john deere trailfire 340 (still around)
(mine)79 polaris apollo 340 (scraped)
71 skidoo olympic 399 (parted out)FIRST SLED EVER.
(mine)71 lynx (vintage racer, still with the big cats in the garage)

71 panther 340 (scraped and parted out)

82 skidoo citation 4500 (70+ mph out of a 370! one tough sled that has been in several wrecks, still around and one of the best we have ever had)

76 mercury trailtwister 340 (brand new engine just got dropped in, that sat on a shelf for 20 some years, still around and completely rebuilt)this sled was dragged its whole life, has had three different tracks, and the original motor had 5000 miles on it. never was rebuilt. now it is sitting in a box in our basement.

74 el tigre 400- motor went south. still have the chassis laying out back

(mine)76 john deere cyclone 340 super mod. this sled was my proudest achivement in sledding. i completely rebuilt and modified this baby into a killer. it had dual 34mm carbs, cut heads, hi-out put hewtech cdi box, new reeds, comet clutch set-up like a 340/s, and a set of open stinger jdx8 7600rpm grass drag pipes. this sled was killer fast in short drags. i never had a truck or the money to take it too any races, but it would slaughter a 440 cyclone and 340 el tigre. sold it for 200 bucks. wish i had this one back! it is roaming around somewhere in MN. the guy put it back too stock, and wants 650 bucks for it now. i should have saved atleast the pipes! they were what woke this beast up.

77 john deere cyclone 440. did about 70 on hard pack. never had a windshield, and was quite heavy.

73 moto-ski cadet 295, same motor as the silver bullet, but with a single carb. this sled is scary fast too fast for the narrow chassis. fun bomber that is still mint except for a small crack in the hood.

(mine)71 moto-ski capri 295- had the 295 added in. just like the 73 except a different body style. this motor was transplanted right out of a silver bullet, but it only came with one carb. i wish for the life of me i would have kept the dual manifolds so i could have put dual mikunis on it!!!

now the new stuff:

99 zr 500, this sled is beyond mint must have been in a bubble its whole life! no flaws, dents scrapes, scratches, nothing. track was never studded.

(mine)99 zl 600 efi- mine, has minor trail branch scrapes otherwise very nice, with low miles.

98 z 440 dad's sled. has one crack in the hood and one tear in the seat. otherwise very nice shape.

coming soon:

(2) 72 panther 292's a pair that has less than a 1000 original miles on. may pick them up tonight.

(Mine)73 puma z 440 replica drag racer. will have a few custom touches that weren' original. the rarest of the rare vintage cats, and i have the parts to built one and cat race stuff, just need the time and money to re- built and paint the chassis.
