red beyer, rupp city in spencer wis, we stopped and looked at the rupp sleds all the time for years
fell in love the with fa sleds, in 82 I got some cash, long story
we went to rupp city,it was a body shop also ,a real funny crabby old dude,
he had a new 76 liquid and a new 340 fa , bingo $800 bucks ,we opened the crate and took it home,i trail rode it,he told me his no good brother inlaw ordered it,but it was a late sled and they were racing already that year,this one was for cross country racng.
it had dual tanks and long chrome steel skis,when we opened the crate
it was just a rupp to me,but it seems to be kinda odd today,i owned it,sold it to a friend,he sold it back to me and I sold it to bill ,cool sled ,I wish I had bought them both that day but left the liquid in the box
old red had a dummy from the old sears store he would hide till 3 pm , his wife drove school buse and when she went past he would set it at his desk,so when she went past she would see him working,thenhe went in the house and took a nap
