WOW! What a POS!!! First thing is first... you need a wife or GF or parents or whatever that are either understanding, indifferent, or like sledding. my wife falls in the the former and latter categories, and she was actually "Excited" (her words) when I brought this hunk of junk into our garage. Of course her excitement may have been self serving as it means she will have a trail sled of her own once this bad boy is GTG.
Money spent so far (CAD $).
Sled - 300
Gas - 25
Like I said. Pretty Yucky in there. Lots of compression in that motor so i am confident it will be GTG. Just need to make it presentable.
Next step is to clean it up a bit and see what kind of "treats" are in there for me. I'm sure the previous owner has "stored" some of the missing bolts from the engine shroud in there.
So far I am happy with this.
