I was sure you told me that there wasn't enough snow around your area to justify a sled, something change?

Correct, their is never enough snow to justify a real sled but their is enough to justify a beater sled, I usually keep a beater sled around to play with when it does snow, I sold my Yamahaha Vmax 540cc sled 4? years ago when we had a nice 12" snow, some guy knew I had the Vmax and offered me a price I could not refuse...

I havent found a deal on a beater until now, the Engine is this sled is the same Engine you had in what is now Toymans Drakart, it will also drop right into my Pilot :-)

Beater Sled..... (Where)

That one looks pretty damn nice to me...

Heck my beater is a 1974 440 arctic cat that has 1/2" of travel and so narrow that if you don't lean on each turn it will dump you right off the side...

Not to mention it has a bad habit of getting me about 1 mile from home before dying or quiting on me...

Nice one you snaged there...
Heck its even registred 2007 - You sure you didn't steal it....

:shock:

More pictures, here are the clutches, see the white rust, how do you think the surfaces of the movable parts looks, all the sleds I have had that used the comet 102C looked like this and the movable parts were well worn out inside, this corrosion comes from setting outside or in a high humidity environment with heat cycles that allows moisture to condensate.

Not really, we got maybe 2" but it drifted so mostly its almost bare ground, its snowing now so I will probably be getting out the VW Baja for a spin around the farm, grand kid wants to play in the snow also so I will probably try pulling him on the sled with the Baja too.
