I was thinking of getting a vintage for this winter. A guy I work with has a whole barn full of them. He won't sell the one I wanted though. It was a factory Evinrude race sled with stinger pipes coming out the side. Killer!

I love how those guys sidehill and carve those sleds. I thought you needed a brand new mountain sled with a 155 or 163 with 2 1/2 paddles to carve and sidehill offtrail?

Damn, try to explain someone what you want an older beater for without showing them this video. It ISN'T fun. The guy who owns this tells me I want something newer and more expensive... NO, I want older and slower, and more beat up. HA

That thing looks cherry! I don't know what kind it is, but I think it's sweet. All it needs is a 10" riser, and it looks like it will be a great performer. Is the track rubber, or does it have those metal cleats on it?

My 76' john deere cyclone is all I am running this year. Its going to be a long time before I ride anything without leaf springs. I love older sleds, and they are a hell of a lot cheaper.

The sleds in that video had to be one lungers. A 340 twin would have to preform better than that.
