First sled I ever rode. Unfortunately not too fast, either the 295 or 340. Definately not int he "TX" class, but still fun.

The 340FA SS (star motor)with 6 bolt head ran almost as much hp as the standard 440.
Still only hit 70 on hard pack, but got there very quickly.

I have a 80 Polaris TX-C 340 and it doesn't weigh hardly anything Damm things are so light didn't need big motors to get them moving quick.

Had one of those, top speed of 80+ on hard pack with temps of -20.
Not too bad of a ride either.

I had a 77 340 colt ss that I bought for $100..it was in rough shape but i dropped another motor in it and fixed the bonet and it ran great for 3 years. It had the 333 motor in it. Tough little sled. Cleated track...Slides never stuck...great little machine.

It also says hard pack and -20 degrees.

I've been watching for a nice 70s polaris to restore. But it's gotta be a polaris and I'd like something that'll be worth money when I'm done, not something that's a dime a dozen.

Even if you pry that TXL Indy away from IBS, that has money written on it. I believe said it was an 1981 vintage, or if you find one the first IFS Indy 340's made in 1980, there were 500 made for the I-500 Race.

Better go take a look at that Blue, it *may* be a 77. If it is, it's a nice piece of history/machinery.
