    Default To me Old school Sleds

    Is there a market for older sleds(74,79). They still run. Are they worth cleaning up and selling?

    Vintage machines are collectable and there's a resurgence in racing them. Check out www.fairbankstirediron.org

    I find them fun to look at and ride around the block on a little. I don't know how I put so many miles on those tippy, hard riding old machines, except that I was young and limber and there wasn't anything else to get around on. Post pics!

    Try Dennis Kirk. Expect to pay a boatload on shipping! But if you know someone coming north you can have it shipped by ground to them and then hand carry it to you.

    Some of the older sleds have flat enough windshields that you can make your own using thin lexan, a saber saw and a heat gun. You can buy the edge trim easily enough at a sled shop.
