WOw, nice find for free, getting harder to find. Look to be in pretty good condition. Those older sleds are so neat.

I've driven those things and a really old safari and man those things float on top of everything! Once they got a little speed going they would go through more then my 650 could.

NICE! elans rock, they will go anywhere and run forever. fun as hell to ride too.
I picked up a 1973 elan last winter and you're right, they are lots of fun. I was really surprised at what that little sled could go through.

yeah, im actually surprised they dont make em anymore. considering how much fun they are and how they'll go anywhere. they made the elan from '71-'96. and it stayed pretty much exactly the same except for decals and a halogen light. they must have done something right.

get both of them running and sell one so i can put a crank in my 700 then just play on the other one. i dont even know if i will register it or not. maybe i will get a sleigh and go cut some wood out at my parents with it. i wish they had reverse though
