Went to the darkside..........
« on: June 29, 2020, 06:16:24 PM »
I'm giving the Rupps a break for awhile. I've bought 6 Arctic Cats & 3 Polaris sleds.Polaris sleds were:1-1980 TXC 340,1-1990 Indy 600 & a 1982 TXC 440.The 1990,had a 440 in it,I junked the sled.The 1980 had a 340FA,I sold the complete sled & I kept the 82 & put a later 440 in it,it runs. The AC: 2-1973 Cheetahs,no engines.3 Jags,2-77's & 1-81,2 had engines,1-275 & 1-340.The last AC,is an 81 440 FC,engine is torn apart,but rest of sled is pretty decent.I will put an engine in it & run it.The 2 Cheetahs,probably junk out.All of a sudden,there are plenty of cheaper AC for sale. I have a lead on an early Indy Trail w/blown 488,cheap.Might pick it up also.My buildings are filling back up.Right now,it is way too hot/humid to even think about working on sleds.Doesn't look good for the rest of the summer. No pictures,as I forgot how to post them to this forum!!
