Default My 81 TXL-Indy project

I wanted to see how well the upload feature works now.... and what I have to do to integrate the gallery with it so the pictures attached to posts show up, but the pictures attached to PMs don't (not integrated yet)

So here is my 1981 TXL-Indy. I bought 2 for $250. One good chassis from 2.

OK so i realized that I don't have my resto pics on here dammit. I'll just upload random crap.

You should re attach those pics of your sled. I want to see it.. Im thinking of getting a vintage polaris if i can find one that is "decent" for cheap.

Is this the liquid cooled 340 TXL?

Yes, it's liquid cooled.. hence the L at the end. I have to find the resto pics and I'll re-upload them later.

Ok cool thanks, Do you have pics of before the resto?

Also does tx stand for anything? If so, what?

I am thinking a txl would be one i would want. It wouldnt really be a all out resto if it would be called resto at all.. But i would fix it up a little see what i can do with it, there is a vintage ride they have in a town real close. I think snowattitude knows about it cuz hes close by too. Anyways i would like to get a vintage sled and use it on that ride and stuff.

I have an 82 TXL-Indy chassis you can HAVE for FREE if you want.

No engine or exhaust. The rest of it is all there. Track's even in great shape.

Ah shit man, you're just a hop and a skip away.

Get out into the world a bit my friend, you'll realize how close things actually are.

Hmm.. Want to get me a car, gas, and a license?? Im all good for a road trip then haha


I would love to take that off your hands, But there is no way i could come get it.


Does your sled have the IFS front suspension?? Or the leaf spring? There is an 83 txl 340 liquid that needs some work. He wants 80 bucks for it. Its missing the hood and it has a bent IFS bar, coolant leak, I dont know what else..

Did you just make an obscure Matlocke reference in front of someone less than 20 years old?

I had one the first 500 made in 1980, I think the number was 404, coolest sled ever back then, IFS, 340 motor that would top out at 80MPH, and even with the xtra 2 suspension, they handle like no other. My old man bought one in 1981, while working for Artic Cat!! So there you are Keith, he even put the A.C. on the trailer as a back up!! So, do the same with your new Polaris purchase, put teh A.C. on the trailer as a back up

That project is actually long done, almost 2 years ago now.

I have found most of the pictures, but they're on my computer... and I get internet on saturday. WOOT.

It'd be a little bit of a haul to drive all the way down to the ghetto. Wanna throw it on Olaf's trailer when he comes to the UP this fall?

How do you like this idea?
