Thanks. It's a 340 (338cc's). Fun little ride. 30 years old now.

This is the one that takes me back.



Just got the new piston for it. Burnt a nice little hole in one of them a couple of years ago. Just like my first only it was a 396. Had some good times on that sled.
That's just too damn funny. My parents had two 433's when I was little, and they bought me a brand new 340 Enticer (but mine's blue) for me for Christmas when I was 14 years old. I still have it

Of course, my first sled was a Kitty Kat that I got when I was 3 years old . . .

If you haven't done it try city of West Yellowstone

West Yellowstone Montana is just outside the northwest gate to Yellowstone Park... now require hiring of a guide to lead a group into Yellowstone but it is a blast. I have a group go every year last week of January or 1st week of February. one day inside the park two more days in Idaho 10 miles from the northwest entrance to Yellowstone NP. To a trail called Two Top Mountain....it is a absolute blast.

Snowmobiles last year were $95 per day, rental clothes are $65 if you don't have them...if you take a group of 4 or 5 people you can usually negotiate a better rate. Randy's Snowmobile Rental on main street. Without doubt the most fun week of my year every year.

Highly recommend...the experience.

Very cool pics that brings back many memories. One of my fav sled was a 72 or 73 Polaris tx338. I remember attending Ironwood, Eagle River, Rhinlander Hodag all through the 70's. Villenueve, Trapp, Duhamel... At the tender age of 12 I also raced in 76 on a Merc 250 sno-twister.

I have had opportunity to go bar hopping on snowmobiles on several occasions.

Sleds RAWK!


MommaJo's from wisCANsin not far from where Hodag is - those nice Cheeseheads were good enough to teach this 'ol Alerbamer boy about sleds.

Some-a them sumbitches will haul ass!

Think about what went into that back in those days.

95mph may not seem fast by today's standards but on that chassis it's faster than I'd want to go!

That's it, twin 669's. Those other sleds may be 669TNT's, also. I just couldn't remember that number. Thanks for the head jolt.

The smell of two stroke exhaust makes my wife horny so I like to run Klotz in my chainsaw and weedwhacker. Not because it works better, but for the smell.



Time to go cut some wood.

Im back

Regarding post #30, the skidoo with Big Windshield and fishing sled.

So it was a good 50 mile or so ride last sat, no brakedowns. Im running 3 year old sparkplugs.
For me its all about getting somewhere.

I got to say my dream sled is a Skidoo Tundra or the Skandic. I have alwase wanted a Tundra but never saw one for sale here. EVER.
(nofate,.post 25 I have a fear of slush,,,)
I like the light weaght of the Tundra but the Skandic is so much more everything and has reverse. Do the newer Tundras have a reverse?

So my legs are sore ,my ass hurts along with my back and arms but I had a good time riding and checking out fish camps.

Regarding a U.P. run I may make it as far as Hurley But I dont think so.

Catfish,, thats a nice rupp in Arkansas do people look and and say,"What the fuck is that?"



So if anyone in the U.P. or North MN hears of a Tundra that is worth buying fixing ect. Send me a mail,, Ill sell the Safiri cheap. Starts one pull.

Dan

Yep, the newer Tundras have reverse and the control box for it says DUCATI on the side. I ran long track Tundras for a few years before they went to the Rev style and they were tough. The new ones are every bit as good but have a more humane seating position if you are over 3' tall. Oh, they have grown to 300cc as well. The Skandic is a great machine with a dual range tranny and mechanical reverse. They are really heavy but will do deepish snow well due to the long and wide track. I ran one for work and it is head and shoulders above the Polaris 500 widetrack.

The Tundra was under powered, especially if pulling a sled. They are OK if you are not in a hurry, but tend to overheat when slogging through deep snow, slush or pulling a load. I use its scored piston as a door stop. When you bore the cylinder out it is done from the bottom because the head and cylinder are one piece.

The newer ones had a reverse that operated by making the engine run backwards somehow. The newest Tundras are real different and I have not seen one, but they would still be under powered with a 250 - 300 cc motor.

I am happy with the Skandic 600 2 stroke. Lots of power and with the long - wide track it goes through stuff that would have bogged down the Tundra. Its a heavy bitch though and I carry a hand winch and rope in the under seat storage space. Haven't had to use it yet though, good thing. The standard hand and thumb warmers are nice on a cold long ride too.
