Riding a 50 year old seld
« on: December 13, 2016, 08:13:00 AM »
Got this 1966 Arctic Cat model 100 running that I picked up a few weeks back.  Just needed to rebuild the mechanical fuel pump, clean out the gas tank and carb and it took right off.  8hp Kohler 4stroke motor.  It's an original survivor.

Kind of amazing that was still being made in 1966. Cat had more modern sleds out then. And I believe 1 year away from the Panthers first year of full production?

 :specool:   awesome. 
Famous quotes;

Roady; "I just wonder why the big 4 can't produce somnething that remotely ready out of the box"

Myself;  "Even when working properly, the E/S on these cats sounds like a vintage scooby doo lunch box full of hotwheels getting tossed down a flight of concrete stairs."
