Great sleds. The Kawasaki motor runs really well. Bump, if they been sitting that long,PLEASE take the time and put crank seals in before riding. Year before last we had an awesome winter here. Everybody was pulling sleds out of the barns and getting 3-4 miles on em before they went 'poof'. I have a '78 Cyclone I need to finish. Motor is all new, just needs put back in.

I would agree with the Merc Snow Twister, 1976.
I wanted one of those soooooo bad back then I might have robbed a bank.
Named "snow twister" because the tunnel and suspension could swivel with the bulk head front end assembly, hence "twister."



These were desirable sleds back in the day.

She hasn't run for over 10 years, so I pulled the motor and tore it down for cleanup and new seals. Sure enough the mag side seal was bad.
