I was about 12 years old when first introduced to this sled. Buddy of my parents in N. Wisc. raced it on weekends at the little circle tracks that cropped up everywhere. Was as fascinated with it then as I am today. He's had it in a barn for 20 some years and the balance of those years it sat in the woods alongside his home. Been dogging him to let me restore it to it's original awesomeness. Almost had it 3 years ago and he changed his mind. Well, about a month back, he said yes and I was up there in a jiffy with my trailer to snag it. I plan on keeping this gents legacy alive by not altering the outside of the hood or existing paint scheme, it's simply cool as h$ll. Will lay some glass on the inside to strengthen it up a bit. Mechanically, I plan on making it right. Crazy as it is, the engine is loose. Compression is 136,135,125 (L to Rt). Tails of the skid are a bit of a mess. Usual other items like fuel tank and seat are roached. Am now seeking the following;
-seat (has the fuel tank fill coming out the center)
-rubber tip for the ski's
-skid. Yep, I'd buy a skid if someone had one
-rubber engine mounts
And any / all advice you throw my way. I know many of these parts are as rare as hens teeth and I'll have to go repro but that doesn't concern me.
