I see you have the factory backrest option. I have a NOS backrest and luggage rack new in the box. Debating on if I should install it or not on my 80 Intruder... :-\

Put it on, there are kind of rare and should not be just left in a box.

These sleds went to MN a few years back. Rumor is some of them are sitting in a yard.

Can we ask, where this pic was taken? And where abouts Minnesota?
Title: Re: Picture of the week, here we go!
Post by: Interceptor398 on July 23, 2017, 07:36:27 PM
The picture was taken in Illinois a few years back.  It was all for sale as a lot and sold to a guy from Minnesota. Several truck and trailer loads of Kawasaki stuff were seen enter the twin cities headed north.  For a short time some of it was being sold on Ebay and other ways of selling stuff.  Some of these sleds were at Princeton a year later.  4 Interceptors on a trailer!  I got a phone # of the guy but could never get ahold of him.  Last I heard a couple years ago some of the sleds are in a back yard in upper MN but a lot can change in a couple years.

That is a very, close to, story I have heard before. Never seen pics to go with it.
Title: Re: Picture of the week, here we go!
Post by: Interceptor398 on July 25, 2017, 07:16:29 PM
Sleds were in a warehouse and trailers for storage.  A deep pockets owner was into Kawasaki and made sure the players had what ever they wanted. It was said that you could port the 8 port motors all you wanted.  The power gain was small and the life of the engine was also small.  The engineers at Kawasaki had the best of everything for building the motors so they are great just as they are. Anyone running these motors should run the stock classes and they will be very competitive.  4/6 was also taken "almost" to the edge.  Sprocket has managed to take those jugs to the edge.

It's an "organic" garden,  you can barely see the Kawi's thru the weeds.

New to this site. I had a 1978 Kawasaki Intruder given to me last year along with 2 other for parts. I am slowly restoring it. It was in my buddy's uncles basement for over 20 years. The parts ones were in a barn that was falling over so they're in pretty rough shape.

So I ordered a new air compressor and it said 10-14 days shipping so I think I have plenty of time to get ready for it's arrival. 4 day after ordering it I see a semi pull up at the end of my driveway!!  Oh crap, the ATV and the truck are both not wanting to start and help me get this thing to the shop.  The delivery guy helps me get the compressor part way down the driveway and there it sits!!  Now what??  The next thing to try is the Invader, it pops right off so there is still hope to get this thing to the shop door.  I put 2 sidewalk scrapers under the front edge of the pallet so it will slide.  I put a ratchet strap low on the pallet and in slow motion pulled the compressor over to the shop door. Worked like a charm!!

Not sure if this is the 1st green Kawasaki sled but it is very close.  Built by the founder of this sled craze and his son.  The 1st calendar I made had this sled in it!  I wonder how many of them are still hanging on a wall someplace??

501 is in the register now.  It is always fun to add another one!  Is this sled in Michigan?

You can get an 81 Drifter in a Grand Caravan without removing the ski's.  Invader needs the ski's to come off.

LOL. you nailed that one!!  I took the sled out last night to play in all this new snow we now have.  I think I busted out the drivers as it now makes a really ugly noise and does not want to move much.  I tried to drag it back with the 4 wheeler and ended up leaving the sled out in the field.  Too much snow to drag it back.

Update--- I tried to snug up the track and take a spin to the top of the snow pile.  It was a no go and I barely got it to it's summer resting place.  Something has busted but it's not the drivers.  I won't know about this one until the weather turns warm.  I was still working the bugs out of this one and I did notice some welding on the front swing arm.  On a bright note I was able to get the 81 Invader to the top of the snow pile!!

But, it is pretty cool that I happened upon the '79 Invader recently that I posted on here, and you found this low mileage LTD. Proof that there are still some really nice ones out there, folks!!

 If I were wealthy, I might have a building full of classic Camaros, Mustangs, Vettes, and Roadrunners.
If I were a billionaire, I might have a hangar full of these warbirds, including a Hellcat, Corsair, P-38, etc..
Since I am neither, I enjoy owning several vintage sleds....

Going to try and get out that way this winter Mark.

That would be fun.  I am trying to decide which sleds to register for next season - probably two of the 440 Invaders - and hope to have a chance to explore some of the trails on the east side of the Adirondacks. 

NY is considering a one-time registration and fee for sleds manufactured before 1980.  This can't come too soon for me.

This picture is from 2009 when Braapfest was called Addicted to old sleds.  We spent 4 hours bar hopping in a blizzard.  At times I could not see their tail lights and had to follow the tracks in the snow.  One of the most fun rides ever!

This past fall I found a bear den on the family farm while cutting firewood.  Later in December I get an email from the DNR saying they are looking for bear dens to survey and collar the sows.  Fast forward to Tuesday it was survey day.  There were 2 cubs in the den and I got to help keep one warm while the worked on the mom.  For only being 6.5 pounds these little guys have some big sharp claws!!

Yes it was!  Clearly something I never expected to do.

This is my father in law holding a cub. We very much had a great day.

Going to need to move the Drifter so I can keep working on the wood pile.

Any excuse to fire up a sled is a good excuse!

Safe to say this helmet would be a bad choice for sledding?

The sled looks great whether on green or white.  And is that a vintage International?

Agreed on the sled and it is a 73 Scout.  I have not driven it for maybe 15 years but have hopes of firing it up before the snow flies.  It has a warm 400 SB Chevy i it.

We had both a 65 and a 70 Scout.  Seeing your photo brought back memories.
