That sled is ten miles from my house. It's nice. He bought it at an auction years ago. The seller worked at the factory, and told him there were only six made. I know at one point Larry from Cordova had the literature on that sled. He told me one year at the reunion, when we were standing next to the machine. It has been to Crosby a few times. You may have walked right by it and not even know. I think the reason they didn't produce them because they were underpowered.
Yes the 290 Cuyuna. I guess I don't really know if it is actually a 295. I just thought I heard that at one point or another. To be honest I forgot a lot about the Cuyuna and such. I just don't have much interest in them anymore. I have converted to an Iron Lunger exclusively, some time ago. I think I may have said this before, but once you go "single" you never go back! I am not able to make the reunion this year but if I was I would let you take my sled with it's little 280 single in it, and let you be the judge. I think you would be pleasantly surprised. Smooooooooooth, just like Chuba apple pie. I have been known to convert one or two in the past. Perhaps I could convert you to the ILA, (Iron Lungers Association).
lol yep stinger4me you told me that before. to bad you cant make it to the reunion i would try that 280 sachs out for sure. Okay so the apple pie is smooth. oh god that stuff can get me in trouble! lol good times here i come
A few words come to mind when I read this: "HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!"
Scorpion made Lil' Whips til 1979. WHY WOULD THEY MAKE A WHIP WITH THE SAME ENGINE??? Yeah, Scorpion did things "off the books" like my "73 and a half" that was made at the factory with leftover 73 parts mixed in with some of the new-then 74 parts, but to make a 300 Whip is just completely "off the wall."
Apparaently "Babysitting" does not actually involve sitting on babies..... My hearing is next week
