    i got a 1975 cheeta 440 this summer for free and started to clean it up. the motor had no spark and we tryed alot to get spark. came down to cdi box we think. and the clutch was rusted badly so i junked the motor. i bought a indy 400 from my friend for 40$ but the ski was ripped off and so was the trailing arm. the motor has spark. so i took the motor out and im puting it in the cheeta. its a tight fit but it looks like it going work... lol. wish i could post some pictures of this rocket sled for ya but dont got no way to. i took every thing off the cheeta i got the undercarage out got both skis off. seat is gone and i took off the the stuff that is unnessesary weight. once i get the undercargae painting up and looking good. and i put the skis and it back in ill make some mounts and get the motor in there. then ill get the coolers in spot and hook up all the lines.and by then i hope i got some SNOW to test it out on.

    whats u guys think lol

    Sounds like a pretty fun project. How much time is this all going to take?
