That thing is beautiful!  Nice work my friend.  My old grass racer turned out alright too.
Nice. Cleated track? Those are fun when crossing the road lol.  Look at my handlebars carefully. I took out some of the pull back. What you think?  I'm in search of a tach.  My instruments are from 85 model I believe.  in 86 they went to oil injection with a oil light in tach. I guess the 85 gauges are as rare as the 81.

Rubber track conversion from an early 80's Pantera, studded w/ chisels for grass.  I have a tach for the 77-78 models, not sure if the 81 is different?

I've run across a dealer or two like that.
Zirt nails is though. "It will be a little while before we can accommodate you".

Hoping the price goes down in the fall  :rolleyes:
I've been looking around for the same sled at a different dealer, but the backcountry model is difficult to find (left back savings).

Buy getting a 2018 model, I stand to save 20% - so that's my justification.....
Now I can spend $2,500 on new apparel  :punk:

I think I have it narrowed down to a 2018 Ski Doo Renegade 600 Backcountry. It's a good compromise for the kind of riding I do and it has almost all the features I want in a sled. The internet price is around $2,600 off, as it's a left back model, so I assumed they'd just uncrate it, prep it and sell it. However they made it clear that at a certain date, they stop dealing with the sleds and they focus on their summer stuff. I just felt that to be really odd.

It's hard to sell sleds in the winter, how many people call you in the spring or early summer ? Only dumb asses like me.... LOL.....

Anyone else in for a new over priced tall cold ride for next winter?  I'd give ya my review of the 018 eltigre 8000 w/ 1k miles in the stable but my dali-lama license expired.  I left hints in here however.  lol.   I glanced at the turbo donkey but beside the MSRP shock I was impressioned with its atv like appearance.  Ever ride an atv in the winter? I did....once.  'nuff said.
I guess Im in for new shocks instead on the battle cruiser.

Anybody that turns down business flat like that is either making too much $ to care, or needs a new line of work.  There's lots of ways to diplomatically say "it'll be a little while before we can accommodate you".

If a dealer treated me like that I would find another dealer...
