This is what we used to beat them with. I had a '75, and not NEAR as pretty.
Better be 10*F or colder out...NOT a springtime machine.

But compared to todays sleds... Whoa.. I got to ride a ~120HP V4 Liquid Cooled sled in 2010 when I was in Vermont... WHOLE 'nother game.

NICE!! Looks like a rocket.

I have been back in FL for 20 yrs this year, so a bit out of the snowmachine world. AWESOME stuff they have now.

Image

This was my last 'daily driver' in Vermont... wouldnt go over 30 mph on a good day, but could get top speed towing another sled. Got it and an Alpine from a XC place that was upgrading. The alpine is still running on a farm, the olympique is in a friends garage...runs, but the track is shot.

(The old free air was my 'race' sled.. it is somewhere in Malletts bay after the ice broke. :( We went back after thaw, but either we were way off on where it was, or someone got it out first. Only in 4' of water... COLD water I remember...)

I had to look this up. I was thinking it was something COMPLETELY DIFFERENT, if you get my meaning, if you catch my drift...
